God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy: And the Dad-Gummed Gummint That Wants to Take Them Away

By Mike Huckabee

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 Beyoncé 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.



    REVIEW QUOTES
"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)...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." -- "Publishers Weekly"
