Overview

God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy by Mike Huckabee

The New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller from a presidential candidate for the 2016 election!

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. 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.

Those who actually take the time to read this book will discover how Governor Huckabee differentiates himself from the rest of the pack. He was the only conservative voice that spoke out against TARP. He has been the primary champion of the FairTax and elimination of the corrupt and too powerful IRS. He has supported enforcement of immigration laws and securing the border, and has rejected amnesty for illegal immigrants. When America was a new nation, it didn't have a huge army. It wasn't an economic powerhouse. And it didn't exert great influence around the world. What made America great was it's values. Rights given by God, not man. Governor Huckabee is often the lone voice in that respect and understands the source of America's strength which is reflected in this terrific book.

I really enjoyed reading this latest book by Mike.  Here's a great American leader who shoots straight with us and tells us that some of the great virtues and values that many of us grew up with are either disappearing or have disappeared.  If you'll read this book as an American who grew up in the last half of the 20th century, you'll know EXACTLY what he's talking about.  I'm glad I bought this book and would recommend you do the same.

Governor Huckabee is able to provide a unique perspective of the American experience in his book God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy. The Governor outlines his vision for a better and brighter country in the future, looking back at America's recent history, and warning against her unsustainable current path. I am very glad that I read this book. Regardless of weather you think Mike would be a great president, he is too conservative, or not conservative enough, it is worth the read for all people who have an interest in American politics.

An easy and entertaining read.  Mike Huckabee has some common sense ideas on gun control and the role and function of government.

Mike is a dilusional man. He is so confused about what it means to be a decent human being, even Jesus couldn't forgive him.

Mike Huckabee is one of my favorite writers. God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy is yet another masterpiece from Huckabee. The book ranges from funny to brutally dramatic and honest. I couldn’t put it down.

I am admittedly not an expert on Mike Huckabee and knew little about him before picking up this read. What a bunch of hooey. Huckabee pontificates with the authority and lack of humility afforded to only the most arrogant and egotistical politicians. He is astonishingly judgmental and dismissive of those with whom he has nothing in common - those he knows nothing about - those who live beyond insular middle-America. Save yourself the time and money to read this book and simply flip on your local conservative radio station.

This book is vapid and banal, containing no substance or depth on the issues it raises. One would expect more from someone who has held high public office and wants to hold higher public office.
