Huck pens another

Posted By on Thu, Jul 9, 2009 at 9:04 AM

Checking out Mike Huckabee's revamped website, I noticed a plug for another Huckabee bookette.

Huckabee's description of "A Simple Christmas: Twelve Stories That Celebrate the True Holiday Spirit:"

These days the holiday has become synonymous with shopping, overindulging, competition, and stress. But that was never God's intention. Going back to the Nativity, Christmas is supposed to be about simple things: faith, love, family, and hope. The hard part is remembering that those simple things are the most precious of all.

In this deeply personal book, Huckabee recounts twelve Christmas memories — often funny, sometimes deeply moving — that range from his childhood in Arkansas to his years as a young husband and father, to his rise in state and national politics.

I solicited a pre-release review from the Times' Huckabee book reviewer, Assmunch. He wrote: "That's the Christmas spirit, all right -- me, me, me, me, me."
