David Brody's The Teavangelicals is part history book and part political science book. The 2012 elections are on the horizon, and with radical liberal segments in the government, the Tea Party Movement has sprung up to lasso Washington back to its Judeo/Christian foundation. Chief Political Correspondent for CBN News and host of "The Brody File," David Brody has penned the conservative Christian's guide to the Tea Party Movement.
Brody lays out the rudiments of the movement, including its organizational history, its leaders and key players, and the doctrinal stances it takes that are parallel to the beliefs of conservative Bible-believing Christians. Written much like his broadcast style (witty, peppy, fact-laden), The Teavangelicals is perfect for any individual who is a fan of Brady's show. For general readers, it presents a logical explanation of the agenda of the Tea Party, its past accomplishments, and its future goals. Gov. Mike Huckabee provides a guest foreword, and the book draws on quotes from other leading Tea Party advocates. - Leann Jordan Parker, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
The chief political correspondent for Pat Robertsons CBN News has written a breezy account of the relationship between the Tea Party movement and evangelical Christianity. This volume repeats the trite slogan that fiscal responsibility is a moral issue; hence Tea Party enthusiasts and evangelicals are a natural match. Libertarians and Ayn Rand aficionados who surely complicate this easy alliance are paid insufficient attention. The book lists key figures and organizations, offering brief summaries of each. In a rare concession, Brody writes that evangelicals operate in a world of biblical absolutes that is colored in blacks and whites and not many shades of grey. Yet for the most part, Brody champions the marriage as an inevitable progression, following the tradition of the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition. There is little original reporting here. A more critical analysis awaits a future writer. (An estimated one-third of the book is missing from early review copies; missing chapters contain time-sensitive embargoed material.(July)2012 Reed Business Information
