Books for evangelicals

I pointed early last December toward a deluge of books, just in time for Christmas, which undertook to explain that Our Invisible Friend had raised-up The Very Stable Genius-in-Chief to save the Good Ol’ U.S. of A. from all those vermin who go around having non-SBC-approved thoughts.

Here’s another book meant to exploit the Godly:

Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis released her new book, Under God’s Authority: The Kim Davis Story. This true story goes behind the scenes to reveal how God gave this unlikely candidate a platform to defend marriage and religious freedom.

In this amazing narrative of redemption and courage, Davis details her personal experience from the moment Kentucky’s governor ordered the state’s county clerks to issue same-sex marriage licenses, throughout her arrest and release from jail.

Though Ms. Davis’ refusal to obey the law can’t be overlooked, I have to admit I tended to view her as a sympathetic figure because of her long train of husbands and the awkward paternity of her children. It isn’t difficult to see that she’s a badly screwed-up and insecure person, or that her ‘piety’ is the source of whatever sense of self-worth she has.

I probably won’t read this unless I can pick it up at a yard sale for 25-cents, but I do notice that no less than Mike Huckabee says “It’s a great read.”
