The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

These books may not necessarily appear on the official New York Times list of bestsellers, but they're the ones our Newsmax audience is reading, talking about, sharing with friends, and buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of July 13, 2020:

1. “How Trump is Making Black America Great Again: The Untold Story of Black Advancement in the Era of Trump’’ by Horace Cooper (Bombardier). Cooper, a senior fellow with the National Center for Public Policy Research, explores what he describes as the “unappreciated benefits” Black people enjoy thanks to President Trump, who’s election he says has been portrayed in the mainstream media as a doomsday event—especially for America’s racial minorities. And yet, Cooper argues, reality has proven quite the contrary. Not only are Black people employed at a greater rate than any other time since the late 1950s, Black business formation is at an all-time high.

The book provides a philosophical framework through which Trump’s presidency can be viewed as a benefit to Black America, rather than a stumbling block. (Nonfiction)

2. “God and the Pandemic: A Christian Reflection on the Coronavirus and Its Aftermath’’ by N.T. Wright (Zondervan). Wright, chair of New Testament and Early Christianity studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, interprets the meaning of the coronavirus pandemic through Biblical scripture and Christian history. He says some see it as the end of the world as predicted in the Book of Revelation, while others say it’s a sign from God to repent, and still others blame the Chinese, the government, and the World Health Organization.

Wright, not satisfied with any of these explanations, suggests his own profound answers by examining Jesus’ way of living, thinking, and praying. (Nonfiction)

3. “The Order” by Daniel Silva (Harper). Silva’s new religious thriller finds art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon summoned to the Vatican when Pope Paul VII suddenly dies of a heart attack. Or was he murdered? Pointing to foul play is a long-suppressed gospel that calls into question the accuracy of the New Testament’s depiction of one of the most portentous events in human history — a document the shadowy Order of St. Helena will stop at nothing to keep out of Gabriel’s hands. (Fiction)

4. "Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All” by Michael Shellenberger (Harper). The veteran science writer and environmental activist believes while climate change is real, it’s not the end of the world. He argues that despite decades of media attention, many remain ignorant of basic facts: Carbon emissions have peaked and have been declining in most nations for over a decade and the risk of Earth warming to very high temperatures is increasingly unlikely thanks to slowing population growth and abundant natural gas. He also outlines the rise of “apocalyptic environmentalism,’’ which he says is pushed by “powerful financial interests." (Nonfiction)

5. ‘How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps’’ by Ben Shapiro (Broadside Books). The former editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and host of the conservative podcast "The Ben Shapiro Show,” says growing numbers of Americans want to tear down what it’s taken us 250 years to build — starting by canceling our shared history, ideals, and culture. He argues that while “disintegrationists” say we’re stronger together, their assault on America’s history, philosophy, and culture will only tear the nation apart. (Nonfiction)
