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.

These books may not necessarily appear on the official New York Times list of bestsellers, but they're the ones our Newsmax audience is reading, talking about, sharing with friends, and buying.

Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of January 24, 2022:

1. "Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win"by Peter Schweizer (Harper) The author of “Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Progressive Elite’’ investigates the secret deals wealthy Americans have cut to help China build its military, technological, and economic might. They include: Silicon Valley gurus, Wall Street high rollers, presidential families, Ivy League universities and professional athletes — all willing to sacrifice American strength and security on the altar of personal enrichment, according to Schweizer. (Nonfiction)

2. "God vs. Government: Taking a Biblical Stand When Christ and Compliance Collide" by Nathan Busenitz and James Coates (Harvest House Publishers) In the spring of 2020, government mandates forced churches across North America to close in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It forced Christians to grapple with how God wanted them to respond to the state-imposed restrictions. After all, didn’t this pose a serious threat in a time when people needed spiritual direction more than ever? This book follows two churches’ courageous decisions to reopen despite orders to remain shut. (Nonfiction)

3. "Let Me Tell You What I Mean" by Joan Didion (Knopf) Didion, a writer’s writer who penned vivid, memorable portraits of American life, died last month at the age of 87. Knopf has collected twelve of her pieces from 1968 to 2000, touching on topics ranging from newspapers ("the problem is not so much whether one trusts the news as to whether one finds it"), to the fantasy of William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon, to not getting into Stanford University. She also ponders the act of writing: "I write entirely to find out what I'm thinking, what I'm looking at, what I see and what it means." (Nonfiction)

4. "The Truth and Beauty: How the Lives and Works of England's Greatest Poets Point the Way to a Deeper Understanding of the Words of Jesus" by Andrew Klavan (Zondervan) In reading the Gospels, the award-winning mystery writer and conservative commentator, found much of what Jesus said confusing. That led him to reading the words of Jesus through the life and work of writers such as William Wordsworth and John Keats, Mary Shelley and Samuel Taylor Coleridge — the English romantics — and discovering a way to encounter Jesus in a deeper and more profound way than ever before. (Nonfiction)

5. "The Lords of Easy Money: How the Federal Reserve Broke the American Economy" by Christopher Leonard (Simon & Schuster)

Leonard, a noted business journalist, infiltrates what he calls one of Americas most mysterious institutions — the Federal Reserve — to show how its policies spearheaded by Chairman Jerome Powell over the past ten years have accelerated income inequality and put the nation’s economic stability at risk. (Nonfiction)

6. "'This Will Be Funny Later: A Memoir'" by Jenny Pentland (Harper) The daughter of Roseanne Barr — who was the inspiration for one of the kids on her mom’s long-running ABC sitcom — describes how fame catapulted the family from the Rockies to star-studded Hollywood —with its toxic culture of money, celebrity, and prying tabloids. By adolescence and struggling with anxiety and eating issues, Roseanne and her new stepfather sent Jenny on a grand tour of the self-help movement of the 80s—from fat camps to brat camps, wilderness survival programs to drug rehab clinics, even though she didn’t take drugs. The publisher calls the book a “darkly funny and frank chronicle of transition’’ from childhood to adulthood and motherhood. (Nonfiction)
