Leg 2 of the *Believe Me* Book Tour May Be Coming to a Town Near You!

Believe Me 3d

Eerdmans Publishing released Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump on June 28, 2018.  It has been a wild ride so far.  In addition to appearances on CNN, CSPAN, and a bunch of podcasts and radio shows, we made visits to independent bookstores in Harrisburg, Washington D.C., Pittsburgh, Columbus, Louisville, Charleston (WV), Lynchburg (VA), Raleigh, Winchester (VA), and Dallastown (PA).  These bookstores events might be described best as some combination of traditional book talk, historical reflection on evangelicals and politics, church, therapy, debate, deep conversation, and civil dialogue.

Most of the Fall will be spent on college and university campuses.  Here is where we are heading:
