On July 28, 2016, Grudem published an opinion piece on Townhall called "Why Voting for Donald Trump Is a Morally Good Choice". On October 9, the piece was retracted and replaced with one entitled "Trump's Moral Character and the Election". On October 19, the original piece was reinstated and another piece was published, entitled "If You Don't Like Either Candidate, Then Vote for Trump's Policies". Grudem endorsed Trump for re-election in 2020.
In his theological method, Grudem aims to compile what the entire Bible says about any given topic. He applied this approach in his Systematic Theology and has now done so more recently in Christian Ethics. Grudem describes the task of assembling verses and passages from the Bible on the analogy of a "jigsaw puzzle." This manner of deploying scripture has been criticized. Carl Braatan, an oecumenical Lutheran, argues that Grudem "piles up biblical proof-texts in blithe indifference to critical scholarship"; his "method is captive to the fundamentalist notion that the canon of biblical texts and their interpretation can be detached from the community that determined canonicity in the first place."
All of Grudem's research on gender-related issues is now contained in his major reference work Evangelical Feminism and Biblical Truth: an Analysis of over 100 Disputed Questions (Multnomah, 2004; Crossway, 2012).
