Gov. Palin’s “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas” has been well received as is evidenced by the number of people who have been willing to stand in line for hours in order to spend thirty-secondsor so shaking her hand and having their book signed.  You can view some of my blog entries about the book tour crowds here, here, here, and here.

Over the last few days there have been several notable book reviews that I would like to bring to your attention.  The first is from Peter Schweizer who is known for his work in exposing crony capitalism via his books “Throw Them All Out” and “Extortion: How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets

From Breitbart:

‘Good Tidings and Great Joy’: Sarah and Todd Palin’s Christmas Gift Guide

Think all there is to say about the War on Christmas has already been said?

Think again.

With her trademark fearlessness and verve, Governor Sarah Palin’s new book, Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmasoffers readers an impassioned, informative, and unapologetic defense of the sacredness of the season.

“If I’m for Christmas, it’s only because I’m for Christ,” writes Gov. Palin. “There is no ultimate peace apart from Christ, and it is Christ who empowers every act of ‘goodwill toward men’ in our otherwise fallen hearts.”

The book’s blending of personal experience with discussions of political efforts to morph Christmas into a homogenized celebration of the “holidays” makes for a brisk and enjoyable read. Even as we learn that Todd Palin gives the Governor what she considers the coolest of Christmas gifts—such as a .30-06 rifle, hockey skates, and a “beautiful red manual ice auger for ice fishing”—Palin packs powerful punches.

“There are few things that anger a secular liberal atheist more than a horizontal plank intersecting a vertical plank—a cross—on public land,” writes Palin. “Perhaps Christmas causes so much anger because the very name of the holiday broadcasts the Name above all Names.”

Political junkies will also enjoy the insider gems Palin sprinkles throughout the pages. In one instance, Palin recounts an interaction with Fox News Network President Roger Ailes wherein the media guru asked the Governor, “What the h-ll is so offensive about putting up a plastic Jewish family on my lawn at Christmastime?”  More

 

Gov.  Palin shared a link to this podcast review by Randy Bohlender. It’s less than 5 minutes and definitely worth a listen.  In it Mr. Bohlender says:

“Thank you Gov. Palin for taking time out of your busy schedule to write about things that really matter.”

 

Lastly, Joel Pollack tweeted his review of “Good Tidings and Great Joy” complete with a Vine video.
