In her New York Times bestsellers Going Rogue and America by Heart, Sarah Palin revealed the strong Christian faith that has guided her life and family. In Good Tidings and Great Joy she calls for bringing back the freedom to express the Christian values of the season. She asserts the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas--in public displays, school concerts, pageants, and our expressions to one another other--and laments the over-commercialization and homogenization of Christmas in today's society.

Interwoven throughout are personal memories and family traditions, as well as more than a dozen family photos, which illustrate the reasons why the celebration of Jesus Christ's nativity is the centerpiece of her faith. Palin believes it is imperative that we stand up for our beliefs before the element of faith in a glorious and traditional holiday like Christmas is marginalized and ignored. She also encourages readers to see what is possible when we unite in defense of our religious convictions and ignore the politically correct Scrooges seeking to take Christ out of Christmas. Good Tidings and Great Joy is a call to action to openly celebrate the joys of Christianity, and say Merry Christmas to one another.

Gov. Palin must be doing something right to raise the ire of such obvious partisans.
Keep up the good work, Sarah!

Bravo to that comment. It's astounding that this grifter family is still raking in money and getting book deals.

Having witnessed Sarah Palin as a politician on the national stage running as vice president in the McCain campaign and having read further about her since, I believe she is completely unsuited to any type of political office. Her understanding of any issue is entirely simplistic, so I was interested to read this book as it is promoted as a subject close to her heart and I thought she might be able to demonstrate an ability to explain something she claims to hold dear. Regretably, she cannot explain why Christ is important to Christmas and seems to have no interest in explaining why he is. The book is more concerned with telling us how perfect the Palin family is, with reminders at opportune moments of Sarah Palin's claimed core beliefs and values, all addressed through self serving statements. This is a person who has almost no understanding of anything complex and, worryingly, has no interest in understanding any subject that requires thought and consideration. This book is entirely worthless on every level, save in so far as it shows how deplorable a person Sarah Palin is.
