The spiritual side of President Donald Trump will be explored in a new book written by two noted conservative journalists.

"The Faith of Donald J. Trump: A Spiritual Biography" — by David Brody, chief political correspondent for the Christian Broadcasting Network, and Scott Lamb, author of the "Jesus in the Public Square" column in the Washington Times – is to be published in February by Broadside Books.

Brody and Lamb will delve into "the rarely discussed, but deeply important, religious beliefs and worldview of Donald J. Trump and his advisors," according to Broadside.

"Trump was raised as a Presbyterian and has praised both Christianity and the primacy of the Bible. In the Oval Office, he has surrounded himself with close advisers who share his deep faith."

The authors "draw on unparalleled access to the White House to explain President Trump's connection to the Christian faith, the evangelical right, the prosperity gospel, and the pressing moral and ethical issues of our day," the publisher says.

They argue that Trump won over evangelicals, in part, "not by pandering to them, but by supporting them and all their most important issues without pretending to be something he's not.

"Though the forty-fifth president is far from the perfect vessel — he has been married three times —his supporters argue that Donald Trump may be just what America needs."

The publisher also says Brody and Lamb show how Trump "has surrounded himself with believers who think he is the one guiding figure who can return us to the traditional values — hard work, discipline, duty, respect, and faith — that have long been the foundation of American life …"

In an interview with Newsmax last August, Brody said: "Many evangelicals like the fact that [Trump] has no time for political correctness and also like how he sees the world in absolutes such as right and wrong, good and evil."

Broadside Books is the conservative publishing arm of HarperCollins.
