Responding to questions regarding his personal character, President Bill Clinton once told his audience that "character isn't the issue." Yet our character defines the world we live in. Our government, welfare programs, schools, and everything else in our lives are shaped and directed according to our character. It's commonly claimed that "you can't legislate morality," but in fact every law in the country is a reflection of our moral values. Over the past thirty years, a decline in moral character has produced a decline in the character of our society. In this contemporary memoir, Governor Huckabee recounts his journey from a blue collar family in Hope, Arkansas, to ordained minister, Senate candidate, and a place on the national political stage. Through it all, he underscores the power of honor, faith, and integrity in our culture and the dangers of turning away from them. - Publisher.
