Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of Dec. 19, 2022:

1. "The Marxification of Education: Paulo Freire’s Critical Marxism and the Theft of Education” by James Lindsay

The American education system has become unrecognizable. Schools that used to produce geniuses instead indoctrinate students with critical race theory, gender theory and extreme liberalism, according to James Lindsay. One of three authors behind the “grievance studies affair,” self-described liberal Lindsay puts America’s education system under the microscope, showing how test scores have plummeted to record lows, how students are being taught to hate America, and what “decolonizing the classroom” truly means. There are virtually countless true stories of extreme positions on race taught to students, drag queen shows in schools, and how neo-Marxist ideals from Brazilian radical Paolo Friere – who believed that education and politics are inherently linked, are being taught to students. Lindsay’s work examines the rot within the modern American education system abd is a tell-all guide on what’s really happening in classrooms nationwide. (Nonfiction)

2. “Witness to Dignity: The Life and Faith of George H.W. and Barbara Bush” by Russell Levenson Jr. (Center Street)

The Rev. Russell Levinson Jr. offers a heartwarming portrait of former President George H. W. and First Lady Barbara Bush that is intimate, moving, and never been truly heard. As rector of the Houston church where the Bushes worshipped for more than 50 years, Levinson witnessed countless memories of the relationship between George and Barbara. He describes the Bushes’ famous wit, their love of family, devotion to their faith, dedication to the church, and why their relationship with each other was so strong over the decades. Levenson goes into detail on what he observed over the years, from the Bushes’ life in Houston to their experiences with family, to what happened when George and Barbara took their last breaths. Emotional, funny and inspiring, this recollection will give you a new perspective of the life and the love that the 41st president of the United States had for those closest to him. (Nonfiction)

3. “Our Man in Tokyo: An American Ambassador and the Countdown to Pearl Harbor” by Steve Kemper (Mariner Books)

Many people know something of Japan in World War II, involving the nuclear bomb at Hiroshima and the Battle of Iwo Jima. Far fewer people know the history of what happened in Japan in the decade preceding the war. Steve Kemper describes a series of shocking incidents involving high-risk diplomacy leading up to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Explaining the tightropes U.S. Ambassador to Japan Joseph C. Grew had to walk during the 1930s, the book details how Grew dealt with growing Japanese nationalism, the threat of Axis-aligned Japan with the Nazis in Germany, and how he attempted to calm the drumbeats of war. Using firsthand accounts as well as Grew’s diary, it tells a compelling story of how Grew risked everything to strive for peace, and why despite his best attempts, Grew ultimately fell short of his goals resulting in the outbreak of war. (Nonfiction)

4. “Into the Great Emptiness: Peril and Survival on the Greenland Ice Cap” by David Roberts (W.W. Norton & Company)

In the early 20th century, the eastern coast of Greenland was one of the most remote places on Earth. The vast, desolate landscape was barely explored, but 13 scientists alongside British explorer Henry George Watkins changed that. David Robers takes readers into the daring and treacherous adventures that Watkins and his team faced, including fighting extreme snowstorms, bitter cold and horrific injury. Detailing their attempt to establish a meteorological base above the Arctic Circle, Roberts tells of a lack of supplies and what happens when a team member gets trapped beneath the snow. In a riveting and daring story, Roberts, an experienced mountaineer, shows just how awe-inspiring and dangerous the Great Emptiness of Greenland can be. (Nonfiction)

5. “For All the Glory: Finding God in Sports” by Stephanie Burdette

Even when human athletes accomplish the impossible, all glory should be given to God. This is one of the main premises that author and trail-runner Stephanie Burdette argues in her new book. Taking readers on a powerful journey of how God influences sports, Burdette tells her story of running and endurance, and how her passion for sport is intertwined with religion and her love of God. In a motivating book that touches on themes of courage and hope, Burdette shows how her own athletic career has been influenced by her Christian faith, and how all athletes can attribute their glory to God.
