Preaching in the Era of Trump: A Free Primer

Preaching in the Era of Trump

Now more than ever, it’s time to preach.

The election of Donald Trump left countless faith leaders across the country speechless. Now that he is president, silence must give way to prophetic preaching.

Christians have long debated whether politics should be addressed from the pulpit. Following President Trump’s controversial, divisive rise to power and the sweeping changes his fledgling administration have already proposed, that’s no longer a question― political preaching will be the order of the day, even for pastors who try to steer clear of controversy.

Veteran preacher, teacher and author Wes Allen examines the Church’s role in President Trump’s rise to power and boldly challenges today’s preachers to step into their call as prophets challenging the oppressive intentions of a Trump administration—without engaging in divisive, antagonistic rhetoric. Allen offers specific strategies and encouragement for preaching the gospel’s radical ethic concerning peace, justice and love for all—especially in a congregation and nation divided.
