Carol Stream, Ill.—Bill Bennett, former US Secretary of Education and host of the nationally syndicated radio show Morning in America, has partnered with John Cribb to write America the Strong: Conservative Ideas to Spark the Next Generation (September 2015, $24.99, HC, 978-1-4964-0593-7 http://mediacenter.tyndale.com/1_products/details.asp?isbn=978-1-4964-0593-7 that will generate dialogue regarding the importance of conservative beliefs and expound why these principles need to be carried forth, especially in the upcoming elections.
In America the Strong, Bennett, the author of 24 books including the New York Times bestseller The Book of Virtues, along with Cribb, specifically defines five principles that will kindle conversation. These five principles are outlined by the acronym F.L.I.N.T.: Free enterprise, Limited government, Individual liberty, National defense, and Traditional values.
America the Strong shows how these principles have made the United States a great nation and why they are worth preserving. It answers more than one hundred questions, from “Do conservatives hate the government?” to “What’s wrong with having an open border?” to “Why can’t rich people pay all the taxes?” In easy-to-understand language, it explains conservative positions on topics ranging from abortion to Islamic terrorism.
America the Strong releases in September 2015 and will feature a comprehensive marketing campaign and national media tour.
