The face of Jesus Christ is seen on a booklet as Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Brennan recites a group prayer during the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

James Martin, SJ, Jesuit priest, editor at large of America Magazine, and author of the new novel Jesus: A Pilgrimage  (HarperOne, 2016), unpacks why many Christians have no issue supporting President Trump, and his policies including the refugee ban and the border wall, even though they are what he calls "manifestly unchristian" and "utterly contrary to the gospel."
