Sarah Palin pens ‘Sweet Freedom’ a devotional mixing politics and religion

Beginning with the use of the word “heck” in the first sentence of the introduction, Sarah Palin will continue her resume of angering leftists as her opponents will certainly not enjoy her blend of politics and religion in Sweet Freedom.

Palin switches gears away from her other books and directs the pages of Sweet Freedom: A Devotional towards evangelicals, sharing commentary, testimony and words of advice with a Biblical scripture.

Using the NIV translation, the former governor of Alaska begins with the obvious: the 2008 presidential loss. “Looking back, it sometimes felt less like  losing an election and more like losing a country,” Palin writes before turning the attention back on the reader: “…remember God is our strength!…Chin up. Literally. Look to God.”

Sweet Freedom A devotion Sarah Palin book coverFans of Palin will enjoy the tone and her plainness of language, making her one of the more genuine Republican candidates in recent memory. In contrast, the left-wing reviewers will certainly bash Palin again for politicizing her faith.

Planned Parenthood, Christian business owners sued for not servicing gay weddings, Alaska’s credit rating, NBA star Dikembe Mutombo and vitriol from the media are all topics Palin doesn’t shy away from.

“Being gracious to these immigrants doesn’t mean we ignore our laws…,” she writes of illegal immigration below Galatians 3:21 and a call to pray “for the just and proper enforcement of our immigration laws.”

Make no mistake, Palin’s purpose is encouragement and a daily devotional that can be timeless, powerful and effective. Sweet Freedom pulls away at Palin’s public persona to focus on her faith and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

“The immeasurable gifts of God are available in a divinely appointed time. It has to fit into His blueprint for your life: it’s guaranteed to be perfect timing,” she advises on God’s timing and provisions.

Palin fans will love the book and will serve to be a great Christmas gift – start the devotion on any day, not just the New Year. There are some interesting topical messages for holidays which can also serve to be timeless.

This is a devotional, not a heavy handed commentary of revealing biography. Like “lipstick on a pig” Palin does have some fun zingers: “Slapped with a racism label? Well, peel if off!” or “Christmas is a state of mind.”

Overall Sweet Freedom: A Devotion receives 3 1/2 stars out of 5 stars

For the evangelical fans of Palin, add a star! This book is for you. Palin wrote these words with you in mind.
