For today’s book review, I am going to be taking on Bill O’Reilly’s book “Culture Warrior”. Mr. O’Reilly, one of the most influential conservative talking heads on television, released this book in 2006, and it has been a road map for conservatism ever since. I would recommend this book to any tried and true conservative who wants their values lined out for them in a very clear manner, but it is also a great read for any newbies to the movement who want to learn what its about. It’s easy to read so it’s good for all ages, and it will confirm and challenge beliefs that you may have about what’s going on in society.
One of the best chapters in “Culture Warrior” is where O’Reilly addresses the war on Christmas that has been raging in America. O’Reilly doesn’t act like a crazy conservative, who sees Christmas as fleeing fast, but he clearly relates the war on Christmas to the religious attacks that have become prevalent in our country in modern times. Through making this connection, O’Reilly brings the “War On Christmas” debate to a whole new level, and he makes it more than just an issue about “Merry Christmas” versus “Happy Holidays”.
O’Reilly doesn’t only address that issue in his book though. One by one, he tackles some of the most heated issues of today, and he does it with a sharp tongue and witty personality that brings a whole new life to a potentially boring debate. All in all, you will walk away feeling extremely interested in conservatism and politics after reading this book, and you will have learned many new things. It’s a great read, and I highly recommend it.
May God Bless America,
