Unholy: Why White Evangelicals Worship at the Altar of Donald Trump Free Audiobook Download by Sarah Posner

Sarah Posner, a journalist for the Miami New Times and Washingtonian, explores how white evangelical Christians were drawn to Trump's campaign. She argues that many evangelicals believe Trump is the avatar of their anger. They are drawn to his hyper-masculine language and aggressive attitude because it reflects elements of their own identities. Trump's call for border walls, travel bans, and deportation of all undocumented people aligns with their own desires for a "white America."

A group of wealthy, mostly white evangelical Christian business owners and executives known as Christian nationalists believe that the United States is a Christian nation where Christianity should be the states “official religion.” They are part of an increasing demographic trend: The Republican Party has long been championed by Evangelicals; however, in recent years politicians have turned to embracing identity politics, doing whatever it takes to win over voters who would otherwise reject them.

Sarah Posner's book "Unholy: Why White Evangelicals Worship at the Altar of Donald Trump" is a comprehensive examination of why so many white evangelicals support presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. The book also discusses how a recent Pew Research Center survey showed that 58% of white evangelical voters are more likely to support Trump than other candidates due to his stance on social issues.

Unholy is a timely and important book that delves deeply into the heart of white evangelicalism and the rapid change in their political attitudes towards Donald Trump. Unholy explains exactly why this change occurred, what these evangelicals believe about their new hero, and how they are motivated to follow him.

Sarah Posner's book tells the story of how Donald Trump, a loud self-proclaimed maverick, has captivated religious voters and media outlets.
