Recently Michael Horton had an article with Christianity Today entitled “The Theology of Donald Trump.” In it, he suggests that “the slender thread connecting Trump to the church is Norman Vincent Peale.”
I was quite fascinated, and never thought my book (Positively Powerless) could have a connection to the current political situation!
As I researched my book, I was amazed by how an occultic “mind-power” movement from the late 19th and early 20th century became so influential…And moved into mainstream American culture primarily through Norman Vincent Peale.
No one is exempt. We have all been influenced by it in one way or another.
