Publisher's Summary

At a time when Christian values are challenged - when the greeting “Merry Christmas” has been replaced by the supposedly less offensive “Happy Holidays” - Governor Sarah Palin makes the case for bringing back the freedom to express the religious spirit of the season. In Good Tidings and Great Joy, she discusses one of Christianity’s most sacred celebrations, and how the holiday has been robbed of its meaning and true tradition by the pressures of political correctness.

Palin defends the importance of preserving Jesus Christ in Christmas - whether in public displays, school concerts, and pageants, or in our hearts - and delivers a sharp rebuke to today’s society for the homogenization of the holiday season. Sharing personal memories from Christmases during her childhood, she illustrates why she holds the celebration of Jesus Christ’s Nativity so dear.

Good Tidings and Great Joy revisits our traditional roots and the true meaning of Christmas. It is a call to action to listeners to defend and openly celebrate the joys of their Christianity, and to say to one another, “Merry Christmas!”

Great Book from an outstanding Conservative Woman

If you could sum up Good Tidings and Great Joy in three words, what would they be?

Moral, Justice and Christian

What did you like best about this story?

It was very well read and painted a very clear picture of the deterioration of common sense toward Christmas from the nutty left in the US

Have you listened to any of Sarah Palin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Unfortunately I havde not, but she was worth listening to. Generally I do not enjoy listening to women readers, but Sarah was completely different. I really enjoyed her voice and agreed with her message.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did

Any additional comments?

I am a right wing conservative who believes in the Constitution in it's original form. I believe that Obama, Clinton, LBJ, Roosevelt, Hoover and Wilson have been and are taking us down the wrong road to eventual destruction. So if you are a conservative who believes in the foundlings of our constitution and christianity, then you will enjoy this book.
