The New York Times best-selling author, 2008 Presidential candidate and host of his own television and radio shows looks at American life, culture, politics and ideals.
"In Mike Huckabee's new book God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, he asks the question, "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 American culture, drawing from his travels as a presidential candidate to present average, small-town people and families, and their optimistic resilience in the face of hard times; their stories, says Huckabee, "will inspire readers to think about their own values and rediscover what makes America great." At times lighthearted, at others bracingly realistic, Huckabee's brand of optimistic patriotism lends itself to discussing the reintroduction of fundamental American values, as well as a bright outlook for future generations.

As an antidote, read: . . . "Taking Liberties ; Why Religious Freedom Doesn't Give You the Right to Tell Other People What to Do" . . . by Rob Boston. . . . . and . . . . . Huckabee wants to be president to fight the “secular theocracy.”

look up:
Isaac Backus 1724-1806, a leading Baptist preacher during the era of the American Revolution who campaigned against state-established churches in New England. starting with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Backus . .
and . .
John Leland 1754-1841, especially his 1791 sermon titled The Rights of Conscience Inalienable,
“Government has no more to do with the religious opinions of men than it has with the principles of mathematics. Let every man speak freely without fear, maintain the principles that he believes, worship according to his own faith, either one God, three Gods, no God or twenty Gods; and let government protect him in so doing….” . . . and . . .
"The notion of a Christian commonwealth should be exploded forever...Government should protect every man in thinking and speaking freely, and see that one does not abuse another. The liberty I contend for is more than toleration. The very idea of toleration is despicable; it supposes that some have a pre-eminence above the rest to grant indulgence, whereas all should be equally free, Jews, Turks, Pagans and Christians." - A Chronicle of His Time in Virginia. starting with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Leland_(Baptist)#Excerpts_from_his_writings

Huckabee writing a book? Rubbish. The sanctimonious hypocrite must have gotten a ghost writer for this.
