THE FAITH AND VALUES OF SARAH PALIN
What She Believes and What it Means For America
By Stephen Mansfield and David A. Holland
OVERVIEW: From the moment she joined John McCain on the Republican ticket in 2008, Sarah Palin has stirred a firestorm of emotion rarely seen in American politics. These passions arise from critical fault lines she exposes in our country, fissures that reveal much about who we are and where we are heading as a nation. The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin examines these critical divisions, looking at them through the lens of Palin's life and faith. Neither biography nor commentary alone, this rather a reappraisal, one that exposes the contentious divisions that currently define our country, including: Religion in American Life, feminism and the conservative woman, the urban/rural divide and the rise of the Tea Party.
AUTHORS: Stephen Mansfield is the New York Times best selling author of The Faith of George W. Bush, Benedict XVI: His Life and Mission and Never Give In: The Extraordinary Character of Winston Churchill among other works of history and biography. He is in wide demand as a lecturer and speaker. David A. Holland is an author, speaker, media consultant, and award-winning copywriter who writes the popular blog BlatherWinceRepeat.com and the satirical ChrisMatthewsLeg.com. He is the co-author of Paul Harvey's America, as well as numerous articles, essays, and opinion pieces.
MY REVIEW: Before I write another word I want to say: I like this book. I like it very much! This is a moving story about a woman who has become a force--a moral force in this country. She is tough, tender, pretty and has a winsome personality that just reaches out and grabs you. She knows what she believes and has the "guts" to stand up for these beliefs. This book makes it clear that the thing that drives her and is the force behind all that she does is her Christian faith. The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin is well written and flows from page to page. If you have an interest in and concern about politics in America you will want to read this good book. If you have no interest in politics but love people and are interested in what "makes them tick" then you will find this great reading. Yes, I recommend this book without reservation.
