Saving America

Numerous books have been written about the Tea Party since its surprising explosion onto the political scene, but few, if any, have been written from a Christian perspective, despite many Christians being active in the movement. In SAVING AMERICA, author Jonathan Wakefield, a Tea Party leader and an ordinary citizen with virtually no political engagement before 2009, examines the powerful movement with an insider’s perspective and from a biblical context. He explains why he felt compelled to finally get active in helping shape his nation’s future, making the case that the Tea Party’s core principles align with Scripture and represent America’s best hope for surviving its current crises, caused by both political parties expanding governmental power, and ultimately thriving again. Written for both Tea Party supporters and skeptics, as well religious and non-religious individuals, SAVING AMERICA will challenge all readers to think through their basic assumptions and beliefs and consider their roles as American citizens at this critical time in world history.

Nominated for Christian Small Publishers Association 2013 Book of the Year in the Nonfiction – Christian Living category.

Saving America highlights how both parties have grown government to a very dangerous size, why people of faith must work to shrink it as quickly as possible, and how to do it. Every Christian should read this book, regardless of their political or theological beliefs.” ~Doug Wead, Historian and New York Times bestselling author

“Jonathan Wakefield, a happy warrior for truth and freedom, penned a rare book–one of the few I’ve read in the last several years that I actually wanted to finish. Not being a Tea Party member, I was enlightened and encouraged by the Biblical underpinnings of the Tea Party. Jonathan’s winsome, transparent, non-confrontational yet compelling style makes the pages of this book fly by. I encourage everyone who has a heart for America to read it and heed it.” ~Alice Patterson, author, Bridging the Racial and Political Divide

“I really enjoyed reading Jon’s perspective in his book and found every word in the book to hold so true to what the Tea Party movement is all about!!! I highly recommend this book to any freedom loving American!” ~ Ana Puig, co-founder, Kitchen Table Patriots

“It is with a renewed sense of victory that I recommend Jonathan Wakefield’s Saving America: A Christian Perspective of the Tea Party Movement.  His self deprecating, honest look at how we got to where we are in this Country offers a wake up call that could ultimately save this republic, if we heed it.  This read is for everyone who ever believed in God, or Country, or who ever loved freedom…time is short, and few have the courage to stand.  Read this book to unlock the secrets of keeping freedom, so help us God.” ~ Dr. Gina Loudon, The Dr. Gina Show

I Share Sonnie Johnson’s Reaction About Obamacare Advocates Doing “God’s Work”

Recently, President Obama told his supporters advancing the cause of Obamacare that they are doing “God’s work.” It will surprise exactly zero of you that I wholeheartedly disagree that a government program eliminating health care options for struggling Americans, dramatically increasing their costs, reducing wages and the workforce, and forcing more people to depend on […]
