*Believe Me* is Officially “Launched!”

Thanks to everyone who came to the Midtown Scholar on Saturday night for the launch of Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump.  The folks at the Midtown were surprised at the large turnout and the book sold out!  According to one estimate, we had about 125 people in attendance!

Here are some pics:

  1. If there were pro-Trump folks in attendance, they did not speak-up. Of course this was also a launch–a sort of celebration of the book. I am expecting more resistance as I head south.


  2. I am curious as to whether there were any in attendance who were less than welcoming to any book that asks questions about the loyalty and devotion to President Trump.
