True Believer

Posted on: April 30th, 2018 by admin
Alarmed by the evangelical movement’s embrace of Trump, Robb Ryerse, a progressive evangelical and lifelong Republican, is called to step away from the pulpit and into the public square in order to inject love, and what he feels to be true Christian values, into the toxic battlefield of American politics. Refusing to take corporate donations, Robb must struggle to raise the $15,000 required simply to get on the Republican ballot—the highest ballot access fee in the nation. True Believer is a spark of non-partisan idealism in a time of political rancor, illuminating the barriers that prevent average Americans from running for office.
