In his award-winning, satire-meets-serious writing style, Starnes jumps headfirst into the current culture war, taking on the topics that are dear to every American: religion, health care, freedom, country music, barbeque, and so forth. Along the way, he shares exclusive interviews with political commentator Sean Hannity, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, cooking sensation Paula Deen, and pop singer Amy Grant, always hoping to go from bitter to better.
"In Dispatches From Bitter America this 'Great American' finds that not only is our American way of life under attack, but also that most Americans do in fact love God, this country, their families, and are anything but bitter!"
Sean Hannity, New York Times best-selling author, FOX News host of Hannity
"Todd Starnes combines sound research with his signature wit to tell the stories of regular Americans who are standing up to a secular movement that seeks to remove all religious expression from the public square. This is a compelling book that puts our entire existence into the perspective of eternity."
Tony Perkins, president, Family Research Council
"You will cheer for America while laughing your head off!"
Matt Patrick, News/Talk 740 KTRH in Houston, TX
"Todd Starnes captures the sentiments many Americans feel as they helplessly watch the traditional values they grew up with being stomped out and over-ruled by political correctness. Todd's stories will strike a chord, whether it's 'The War on Christmas,' 'Tag, You're Out,' or 'The Chocolate Czar.' Brownies now banned from school? Bah humbug."
Gretchen Carlson, co-host, Fox and Friends
"Dispatches from Bitter America features Todd Starnes at his best. With his trademark wit, Todd tackles questions being asked by Americans who wonder what is happening to our country. Starnes manages to get to the heart of the matter in a way that is both packed with information and sprinkled with humor. Todd Starnes is a man of immense faith, madly in love with our country, and endowed by his Creator with the unique talent to tell a story like very few can. Simply put, Dispatches From Bitter America is the best book that I have read this year!"
Jeff Katz, morning host, Talk Radio 1200 in Boston, MA
"Todd Starnes is a masterful storyteller. In Dispatches of a Bitter America, he offers commentary on today's current events through the lens of a self-proclaimed gun toting, fried-chicken-eating son of a Baptist. Todd has always been one of my favorite news personalities and good friends. Now he is one of my favorite storytellers. Warning: don't start reading this book unless you are prepared to finish it. It's just that good."
Thom S. Rainer, president and CEO, LifeWay Christian Resources
Jean Bray5 Stars Out Of 5Had to buy severalJanuary 8, 2015Jean BrayQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My husband originally read this book from the library. He enjoyed it so much that wanted me to buy it not only for himself but to pass on to others. At the great price CBD is offering it for, it makes a nice gift to give to someone who has conservative values.
Rev William H Kinney5 Stars Out Of 5Nothing Bitter About This WriterDecember 26, 2014Rev William H KinneyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this book because of the title. I enjoyed this book because of the writing. Though the book is political, the Christian prospective of Mr. Starnes and his sense of humor made this book a good read. President Obama calls people of faith "bitter" because we love the Lord and his Word, but he has no idea of the joy and victory that is found in true Biblical Christianity. Thanks Todd for a great book.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm the host of Fox News & Commentary - heard on hundreds of radio stations around the nation.
What was your motivation behind this project? The nation is embroiled in a culture war and I wanted to write a book about the gun-toting, Bible-clingers that President Obama once derided.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope folks will come away entertained, educated and encouraged -- knowing that regardless of what happens, God is still firmly in control.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? This was a fun book to write but it was also disturbing. I'm truly amazed at how the Mainstream Media has ignored public efforts to remove Christianity and Christian values from the marketplace of ideas.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Jerry Jenkins certainly tops the list - along with David Dockery, the president of Union University.
