The Newsmax Rising Bestsellers list will do more than stimulate your mind. These reads may challenge your beliefs, broaden your perspectives, excite your curiosities, or widen your imagination.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Aug. 3, 2020:

  1. Jesus Politics: How to Win Back the Soul of America’’ by Phil Robertson (Thomas Nelson). “Duck Dynasty’’ patriarch and bestselling author Phil Robertson exposes what he calls the destructive nature of American politics and says Christians must actively participate in advancing the kingdom of heaven on Earth. Exploring the problems facing the U.S. — in which identity politics, creeping socialist policies, and the vast partisan divide threaten the very fabric of America — Robertson describes how Jesus would respond to each and offers a manifesto to “win back the soul of America.” (Nonfiction)
  2. Live Free or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink’’ by Sean Hannity (Threshold Editions). The conservative commentator looks at “America’s fight against those who would reverse our tradition of freedom — a fight we can’t afford to lose in 2020.’’ He argues that left-wing radicalism and resentment have threatened to undermine democracy in the form of social justice warriors, the deep state, and compromised institutions like academia and the mainstream media. And, the author warns, a Democrat victory in 2020 will be a big step toward full-blown socialism along with the economic dysfunction and social strife that are its hallmarks. (Nonfiction)
  3. Demagogue: The Life and Long Shadow of Senator Joe McCarthy” by Larry Tye (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). This new biography of the infamous Wisconsin senator is based on the first-ever review of his personal and professional papers, medical and military records, and recently unsealed transcripts of his closed-door congressional hearings. From 1950 to 1954, McCarthy destroyed many careers and even entire lives, whipping the nation into a frenzy of paranoia over communism. By recklessly charging treason against everyone from Secretary of Defense and war hero George Marshall to much of the Department of State, he became the most influential and controversial man in America — until the public finally turned on him. (Nonfiction)
  4. The 21 Biggest Lies About Donald Trump (and You!)" by Kurt Schlichter (Regnery). Schlichter, a trial lawyer and senior columnist for townhall.com, says no president has been more unjustly vilified than Donald Trump, who he calls the most effective conservative commander-in-chief in decades. The author argues that liberals cry “racism” at any argument they don’t like, that Trump “the warmonger” has actually given America a more realistic — and safer — foreign policy than any of his immediate predecessors, and that Trump possesses great virtues that too many Republicans lack: realism, courage, common sense, and an unapologetic determination to win conservative victories. (Nonfiction)
  5. The King of Confidence: A Tale of Utopian Dreamers, Frontier Schemers, True Believers, False Prophets, and the Murder of an American Monarch’’ by Miles Harvey (Little, Brown and Company). Harvey lays out the bizarre, true story of James Strang, a charismatic young lawyer and avowed atheist who in 1843 vanished from his rural New York community, appeared on the Midwestern frontier and converted to Mormonism. Then, when Joseph Smith Jr., founder of Mormonism and the Latter Day Saint movement was murdered, Strang unveiled a letter purportedly naming him successor, and persuaded hundreds of fellow converts to follow him to an island in Lake Michigan, where he declared himself a divine king. From this stronghold, he controlled a fourth of the state of Michigan, establishing a pirate colony where he practiced plural marriage and perpetrated theft, corruption, and fraud of all kinds. Despite his incredible cons, Strang also served as a congressman in the Michigan House of Representatives. (Nonfiction)
