About-

The American church is in crisis. The crisis is not caused by the politics of Trumpism, though that is the occasion for it. The crisis is evoked by the great challenge which every generation faces: to follow Jesus Christ in the way of discipleship. The word of God’s promise sets before American Christians a simple but dramatic choice in the face of the toxic politics of Trumpism. Does the gospel of Jesus Christ embrace the politics of Trumpism? Yes, or no? Each must choose, and the gospel itself is at stake.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“McGlasson accomplishes in this book something that is almost entirely absent in public life today. Without demonizing people who hold an opposing political view, he examines the theology undergirding the political loyalties he critiques. Drawing on the German Confessing Church movement, he not only shows the serious consequences of false doctrine, he also offers a compelling articulation of the gospel of Jesus Christ for our time.”

—Jennifer M. McBride, President, International Bonhoeffer Society—English Language Section, and author, The Church for the World: A Theology of Public Witness



“McGlasson has done what needed to be done. That is, he actually documents the evangelical support for Trump. Just as importantly, he frames that support by directing attention to the German Christians’ identification with National Socialism. He is aware that such a thesis will invite easy dismissal but he rightly sees that these are dangerous times that require plain speech. Hopefully this book will be widely read.”

—Stanley Hauerwas, Duke Divinity School, author of Minding the Web (Cascade, 2018)
