BOOK REVIEW: “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again” by Todd Starnes

Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet Todd Starnes and get a signed copy of his book, The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again. Todd is a contributor for Fox News and has a daily radio commentary that is broadcast across the country. His passion for protecting our religious freedoms in America is clearly evident in his work and throughout this book.

The Deplorables Guide is a collection of many of the recent stories that Todd has reported. These range from teachers restricting religious speech in schools to references to Christmas being taken out of the public square. Todd conveys his Southern charm on every page as he masterfully tells each story.

The great thing about this book is that it includes “Marching Orders” at the end of each chapter. These are practical ways that any American can protect their religious liberties. Todd quotes Dietrich Bonhoeffer:

“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.”

He goes on to challenge his readers, “Making America great again does not start at the White House. It starts at your house, and mine.” Christians are desperately needed to take up these “marching orders” or our country will continue to erode its moral foundation.

I highly recommend The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again. Todd Starnes shows us the need for every “red-blooded American” to stand up for our rights as Christians and also gives us simple, effective ways for us to take that stand. If every American acted as you did, imagine what our country would be like.

Will you take a stand and follow some of these “orders,” or will you be silent and let the devil continue to take over our country?

You can get your copy of The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again as well as some of Todd’s other books on Amazon. It is definitely worth it.
