Thomas Ricks’ “The Gamble” and Bill Lobdell’s “Losing My Religion”

Tuesday, February 24, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Today’s broadcast leads off with Thomas P.M. Barnett in another of our series of conversations about his new book Great Powers. The transcript will be posted here later and the podcast here.

I’ll also be joined by Glenn Reynolds and Mickey Kaus to engage in some speculation about the president’s address, and by Chuck Colson for another in my series of conversations about evangelicals in the Obama era. So a full show. Tomorrow, of course, we’ll pick over the president’s speech withMark Steyn, Lileks and others.

But don’t miss Thursday’s when Thomas Ricks and Bill Lobdell will both be in studio, back to back.

Ricks’ The Gamble is a fascinating, detailed examination of how the U.S. snatched victory from chaos in Iraq, and it is really an extraordinary bit of reporting.

Lobdell’s Losing My Religion is a memoir of his life and faith journey over the past two decades. Full disclosure: Bill’s my closest friend, and I play a walk-on role in the memoir, but don’t believe me that the book is an important read, check out the Christian Science Monitor’s review.
