Eric Metaxas Reveals How to Win the Culture War

In our exclusive interview with national radio host and bestselling author Eric Metaxas, he discusses why he’s now a political conservative, where we are in the culture wars, the battle for religious liberty, and his new children’s book Donald Drains the Swamp: A Donald the Caveman Book – which may or may not be based on a true story!  Metaxas is also the author of the much celebrated biography of Bonhoeffer.

BOOK OVERVIEW – Donald Drains The Swamp

  • Part children’s book, part political parable, Donald Drains The Swamp takes the story of Pres. Trump’s election and the D.C. political swamp he’s sworn to drain, and turns it into a story of a people ignored by their King and misruled by the literal swamp creatures living around his castle.
  • Trump becomes “Donald The Caveman”, which is also the name of the series of books Metaxas is starting with Donald Drains The Swamp. Playing into the liberal horror at his real-life behavior, Donald the Caveman decides to help the people and drain the swamp.
