From reviews:

Let me just start by saying that I'm a Christian and I graduated from Liberty University. One of the hallmarks of being a Christian, well the kind specifically idealized by a place like Liberty University, is whether or not one bears the spiritual fruits of the Holy Spirit which is evident to others. Found in Galatians, the fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. We all fall short and it's a daily walk with God where we're being transformed to become more Christlike out of our sinful nature. But I believe we could all agree that Trump's words and actions are the opposite. The exact opposite. Of all the fruits of the spirit. All of the time. Not just a couple of the fruits some of the time. All of them all of the time. Is he a work in progress? Maybe. Doubtful, but maybe. Maybe he is different in a private setting. But the example he has shown in public over the past two years, as the authors have stated is the time frame his spiritual journey has really ramped up, is the exact opposite of how someone looking to emulate Jesus would act. Who are we trying to kid here?

Seriously, I'd dearly love to see clear evidence that he's come to faith, but...please.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

...then I'm fairly sure that President Trump isn't the believer that this book makes him out to be.

"Our task today is to tell people — who no longer know what sin is...no longer see themselves as sinners, and no longer have room for these categories — that Christ died for sins of which they do not think they’re guilty." - David Wells
