Overview

The New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller

In God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, Mike Huckabee asks, "Have I been taken to a different planet than the one on which I grew up?" The New York Times bestselling author explores today's fractious American culture, where divisions of class, race, politics, religion, gender, age, and other fault lines make polite conversation dicey, if not downright dangerous. As Huckabee notes, the differences of opinion between the "Bubble-villes" of the big power centers and the "Bubba-villes" where most people live are profound, provocative, and sometimes pretty funny. Where else but in Washington, D.C. could two presidential golf outings cost the American taxpayers $2.9 million in travel expenses?

Government bailouts, politician pig-outs, and popular culture provocations from Jay-Z and Beyonce to Honey Boo-Boo to the Duck Dynasty's Robertson family. Gun rights, gay marriage, the decline of patriotism, and the mainstream media's contempt for those who cherish a faith-based life. The trouble with Democrats, the even bigger trouble with Republicans, our national security complex, and how our Constitution is eroding under our noses. Stories of everyday Americans surviving tough times, reflections on our way of life as it once was, as it is, and as it might become...these subjects and many more are covered with Mike Huckabee's signature wit, insight, and honesty.

At times lighthearted, at others bracingly realistic, Huckabee's brand of optimistic patriotism highlights American ideals, offering a bright outlook for future generations.

With a wry eye for the ridiculous and a clear-eyed look at the most controversial issues of our time, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy is Mike Huckabee at his very best.

Anyone who has enjoyed any of the previous books by Huckabee—former governor, one-time presidential candidate, and Fox News host—will be more than satisfied with this examination of the differences between “Bubbleville” (New York, L.A., and D.C.) and “Bubbaville” (the rest of America). In clichéd prose, he describes New York as “not completely Sodom and Gomorrah” and himself as “a catfish and corn bread kind of guy, not a caviar and crab salad connoisseur.” Huckabee offers a laundry list of grievances and discusses his stances on guns, religion, gay marriage, Obama, and Hollywood: he believes that American Christians are “cultural lepers,” marriage “is not merely a secular institution,” the IRS “is a criminal enterprise,” reality TV’s Duck Dynasty and Jim Bob Duggar “reflect all that is good and decent about family,” and poverty relief is “about perpetuating government programs.” Huckabee’s leavens his musings on the state of the union with a sense of humor (“I prefer boots over Birkenstocks. Does that make me weird?”) that makes him enjoyable to read. (Jan.)
