She stepped onto the world stage as the Republican vice-presidential nominee in the election of 2008. Previously, she had only been a small town mayor and the governor of a state with slightly more than half a million people. Still, there was something about her. She was pretty, fierce in her conservatism and she seemed undaunted by the slings and arrows of national politi ...more

I hate to give such a predictable rating to this book. It was given to me as a gag-gift, because my politics are far apart from Palin's. However, I actually wouldn't mind reading a book that seriously worked to determine what Palin's values are. This is not a serious book; it is a hagiography.

Palin's defenders may well like this book because it views the world in the same terms they do. But for the rest of us, I will quote a few sections of the book just so you get an idea of the text:

Whatever you think of Sarah Palin, this book reveals her deep sense of family and doing what is right for the country. I found this book to be an insight to Sarah's deep faith which guides her decisions and her love for our country. It was refreshing to read about a politician with a deep sense of who she is, her humble background, her real concern for her fellow Alaskans and her true desire to help America.

It was a very good book. Helped me better understand her stance and her behaviors. Really noble personality, the fact that she knew she needed to give up her power so that the people could b better served is a true sign of a leader.

Stephen Manfield can really crank out the books. It would be interesting to see how many he has written in the last ten years. In this book he does a good job of presenting a fair view of Sarah Palin. I agree with Sarah Palin on about 95% of her views but for some reason I do not see her as President of the United States. If you want to read a fair account of her life and views this is a book for you. As always in Manfield's books he quotes from lots of people. You will see in the quotes below t ...more

Few people outside of Alaska had ever heard of Sarah Palin when Senator John McCain announced her as his running mate. Today, it is rare to find someone who does not recognize her and doesn’t have an opinion, either favorable or unfavorable, about her, her politics and her faith.

Stephen Mansfield and David A. Holland have examined her life and faith and wrote about it in “The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin.” Her remarkable rise in politics was motivated by her faith and desire to fulfill what s

"The Faith and Values of Sarah Palin" gives you a look inside Sarah Palin's spiritual self. Her spiritual history and upbringing were laid out for those of us to view and to determine if she is a person we can trust with this countries future. She has a strong background of small-town values; right is right no matter who opposes it, the constitution is a covenant with the people it governs, politics should not overcome the right of the people - morals! She stands up for what she believes and she ...more

I didn't have a strong opinion about Sarah Palin prior to reading this book. It was very useful in helping me understand her background and her current role on the American political scene. Unfortunately I think the authors missed the point of what it means to truly be born again--the Bible itself says that people can be Christians in name only without any fruit as evidence (I'm referring more to Palin's family and other politicians, rather than Palin herself)--so their depictions of "faith-base ...more
