Mike Huckabee has received national attention for his tenure as governor of
Arkansas, as a presidential candidate, and as the host of Huckabee and The
Huckabee Report. However, he has also won American hearts and minds as an
author. His most recent work, A Simple Christmas: Twelve Stories that Celebrate the
True Holiday Spirit, was released during the holiday season, but contains enough
wit and wisdom to make a wonderful read any time of year. A Simple Christmas
invites readers into Huckabee’s childhood and his experiences as a young husband
and father. With warmth and humor, Huckabee relates the time he was caught
opening his presents before Christmas and other anecdotes, each detailing a
humble, vital lesson. There are even Christmas stories drawn from Huckabee’s time
in office and from the campaign trail. Huckabee, who was a pastor before beginning
his career as a politician, draws the conclusion throughout the book that hectic
holiday commercialism should not be mistaken for the meaning of the Nativity.
Instead, we should return to love, simplicity, and family each time we celebrate the
birth of Christ. To learn more about A Simple Christmas and all of Mike Huckabee’s
