We Be Big (and we love gravy)

In their latest book, We Be Big, Rick and Bubba take a break from the hilarity of their previous books and roll back the pages of time to show us the genesis of The Rick and Bubba Show. I be big. They be big. Together, we be big. Anyone who has listened to this show has come away with the same sense of familiarity. These two guys, along with the other staff members feel as though they belong at your dinner table, or your front porch. Their relaxed and inviting style makes everyone feel like we’ve known these guys since birth.

We Be Big takes the reader through the early lives of the “Two Sexiest Fat Men Alive”, focusing on the ethics instilled in these two by the parents. The moral compass instilled in these two by growing up in the South under the watchful eye of God fearing parents is on display early in this book. We Be Big chronicles the lives of the dynamic duo showing us successes and failures along the way. Where stumbles are made, they are glaringly on display in the pages of this book. We are allowed to witness the spiritual maturation process of these two stars, and how God uses each of them in various situations to be His mouthpiece. We are taken through triumph and tragedy; we’re made to feel again like part of the family. No matter how familiar you are with this hilarious morning show emanating from the broadcast plaza and teleport near downtown Birmingham, you will enjoy this book. We can all take heart from the example of how God will bless those who choose the walk through the doors that He opens.

I received this book in exchange for a fair review from Thomas Nelson through their Booksneeze program.
