What’s at stake in this election?
In 2016 God raised up Donald Trump to lead America at a pivotal time. Evangelicals who recognized this backed him more than any other presidential candidate in history. Heading into 2020, the stakes in his reelection are even higher. This election, nine months after this book releases, is a new fight for the soul of America. Stephen E. Strang makes the case that God wants America to be great because God has raised up America—beginning with our Founding Fathers—to be a beacon of light and hope for the world. We’ve been the nation with religious liberty that has supported those who have spread the gospel around the world.
In this book Strang looks at the election, Trump, and America from a spiritual perspective and helps Christians (and others) see God’s hand at work. This book is as much about God and His purposes as about Donald Trump. But it is also an articulate, impassioned apologetic about why all Christians must support this imperfect president, because he has God’s blessing and because the destiny of America is riding on his reelection. This book also explores why he might lose, if his base is overconfident and doesn’t vote or if his opponents are dishonest enough to steal the election.
God, Trump, and the 2020 Election is an inside look at how the political climate is affected by spiritual warfare—an important subject for Bible-believing Christians. The satanic schemes are so brazen on key issues that the book was written to explain what’s at stake. Strang believes that the intersection of faith and politics needs to be part of the national discussion about the division in our country.
God and Donald Trump (2017)
Trump Aftershock (2018)
On the other hand, however, the author has presented a clear picture of the Trump Derangement Syndrome and the Equality Act that failed to pass. He also states the reasons that President Trump must win....and, then in the next chapter he does say that he could lose. I found this a balanced representation of both sides of this equation.
The author suggested reading this with an open mind which I did. The portion on Christianity and Secularism affords the readers to think seriously about where they stand in this realm. And, many pastors are having difficulty speaking what they believe because of their congregation(s). (This area had to do with abortion).
Lots of points to ponder in this book. May not be your cup of tea but the author has presented a concise and thoughtful inside look at the political climate and spiritual warfare. Interesting read for me.
