Re: My New Book
I just wanted to pass along the news that Zondervan will be publishing my first book called, The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How Evangelicals, the Tea Party, and Presidential Contenders are Trying to Take Back America.
It will feature campaign-style reporting and many fresh one-on-one interviews with major players inside the evangelical, political and Tea Party worlds.
It will be in bookstores across the country in July of 2012.
Zondervan Publishing released the press release this morning. You can read it below:
Zondervan Press Release
Zondervan Publishing Acquires David Brody’s First Book The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How Evangelicals, the Tea Party, and Presidential Contenders are Trying to Take Back America
Christian Broadcasting Network’s Chief Political Correspondent Gives an Exclusive Look at the New, Powerful Movement
“Teavangelicals”—a new buzzword, coined by Brody himself—are the new, emerging political force in American politics. No one can look inside this world quite like David Brody.
Coming July 2012
For Immediate Release (Grand Rapids, MI), August 9, 2011 -- With the legendary Iowa Straw Poll taking place later this month (August 13), Zondervan is proud to announce it has acquired CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody’s new book, The Teavangelicals: The Inside Story of How Evangelicals, the Tea Party, and Presidential Contenders are Trying to Take Back America.
Brody, a respected journalist with a twenty-five year, Emmy-winning career in television, takes the reader behind the scenes in Washington and throughout the country where he discovers:
• Teavangelicals: A new, emerging political force that is plotting strategy at this very moment to reclaim America
• The Tea Party-Evangelical Christian relationship: Why the mainstream media continues to portray Evangelicals as a threat to the Tea Party Movement, and why the mainstream media continues to get it wrong.
• More than half of Americans who identify themselves as part of the Tea Party identify themselves as born-again Christians
• The “nerve center” of this powerful new movement is far, far away from Washington, DC in the Atlanta suburb of Duluth, GA. Brody gets inside and reveals all.
• Why Evangelicals ARE critical to the success of the Tea Party.
“If you remove fiscally conservative evangelical Christians from the Tea Party movement, you’re left with half a loaf. This book takes the reader on a behind the scenes adventure guaranteed to explore and reveal the evangelical tentacles that permeate the movement,” Brody says.
David Brody appears on Christian Broadcasting Network’s The 700 Club as the Chief Political Correspondent. He also regularly appears on Fox News, MSNBC, CNN, C-SPAN and NPR. The New York Times declares, “Mr. Brody occupies a position of influence,” and his analysis has, “become required reading for political insiders.”
I am truly humbled to be writing this book. I hope this work will provide clarity about the role of evangelicals within the Tea Party and at the same time provide readers an inside look at how some of the 2012 presidential candidates are positioning themselves to win over both evangelicals and members of the Tea Party. The hybrid voter is a “Teavangelical.”
I'm looking forward to an exhilarating time-consuming yet fun project. Prayers appreciated!
