I was intrigued by Stephen Mansfield’s book Choosing Donald Trump: God, Anger, Hope, and Why Christian Conservatives Supported Him, because what led to Donald Trump’s win is a much-discussed topic. Earlier this year, I read J.D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir of a Family and Culture in Crisis, which has been described by the Times as one of “6 books to help understand Trump’s win.” As I started to read Choosing Donald Trump, I was hoping that Stephen Mansfield would offer good insight into the election – and he did. Mansfield is skilled at writing biographies and nonfiction; he has written about Lincoln and Churchill and Arthur Guiness. In Choosing Donald Trump, Mansfield delves into research, delivering chapters that shed light onto why Trump won.
