Former special assistant to President Trump, New York Times bestselling author, and evangelical Christian Cliff Sims shares the lessons he learned on faith, politics, and the Christian witness while working in the halls of power.
American life today is consumed by politics. Even our churches are tearing themselves apart over political candidates, cultural flashpoints, and debates about whether certain pastors are vessels for the Holy Spirit or an unholy political agenda.
So how should Christians approach our lives in this time of strife and division? How should we engage in politics and respond when we find that our beliefs are at odds with the culture? And how do we keep our focus on eternity when the present attractions of the world are there in front of us at every turn?

Cliff Sims, the son of a Baptist minister and man of deep Christian faith, has walked the halls of power, serving as a Special Assistant to President Trump and Deputy Director of National Intelligence. While working at the highest levels of the American government, he experienced firsthand the cutthroat world of power politics, an environment that can test the character of any follower of Jesus, and he wrestled continually with how to live out his faith.
In this book, Cliff shares hard-earned wisdom from his time serving in government, giving Christians lessons on how to live faithfully and with integrity. Recounting stories from the West Wing, Air Force One, and top secret bunkers, Sims offers practical advice and biblical insight on how to let the light of Christ shine in our dark world, regardless of our politics.
The Darkness Has Not Overcome is a must-read for every Christian who has found themselves exasperated by politics, fearful about the future, or discouraged by the times in which we live.

  • "I worked closely with Cliff Sims every day when I served as Director of National Intelligence. In this book, Cliff gives readers a rare look into a world that most people only see in movies about the White House, or in spy novels – and he does it while providing practical faith lessons that apply to all of our lives."
    John Ratcliffe, Former Director of National Intelligence
  • "Politics is a cutthroat but ultimately temporal game, and Cliff Sims has played it at the highest level. The Darkness Has Not Overcome is full of indispensable lessons on how to view politics through an eternal lens while also being good stewards of the political freedoms we enjoy."
    J.D. Vance, U.S. Senator, New York Times bestselling author of Hillbilly Elegy
  • "American Christians are under attack every day by leftwing activists, mainstream media outlets, and liberal politicians who want to take away our most basic freedoms. My friend Cliff Sims has been through the fire and lived to tell about it. The Darkness Has Not Overcome is an inspiring read that you’ll come back to again and again when you’re going through your own challenges."
    Donald Trump, Jr.
  • "How does a Christian live with decency in a political world? First, by never forgetting that our fight is not against flesh and blood. We’re actors in a larger drama that we can rarely see, but often, if we’re quiet enough, can feel very clearly. Cliff Sims understands this, and he’s written about it beautifully in this wonderful book."
    Tucker Carlson
  • "American Christians are in an existential fight for liberty and Biblical truth against radical leftwing forces hellbent on undermining both. Cliff Sims has been an indispensable leader in this fight, which is why The Darkness Has Not Overcome is a must-read for anyone who wants to preserve the Judeo-Christian values that made America the most special country on Earth."
    Charlie Kirk, Founder of Turning Point USA
  • "Cliff Sims has written the book America has been waiting for. It's non-fiction that reads like a thriller. And in the genre of 'Faith & Politics,' it may be the best book ever written. The Darkness Has Not Overcome is a gift to us all—and one you will be anxious to share with everyone you know."
    Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The Traveler’s Gift and The Noticer
