Book Review: The Coming Revolution
The Coming Revolution
By Dr Richard G Lee
Thomas Nelson, 2012
English, 256 pgs
People need a creed and a cause, and today millions of patriotic Americans are finding their voices.
They say the best indicator of the future is history. How things have been can be a powerful signal of how they will be. But what will be our role in shaping the future for this country?
In The Coming Revolution Dr Richard G. Lee powerfully explains that a new revolution is coming. It may be in the streets of our nation's capitol-as we saw in Europe last year-or, better yet, in voting booths across America. Signs from our nation's past and present ring out the truth: a second American revolution is near at hand.
Using this country's rich heritage of liberty and democracy as a roadmap toward where we could be headed, Dr. Lee brings thoughtful clarity to the ever-growing probability of such a revolution in America; illuminating the important reminder that the voices of every revolution have been-and always will be-the ordinary everyman.
Discover how you can be a part of this country's social, political, and moral reform and how faith in God serves as the one truth that can provide both individual and national guidance for America's next revolution.
I am purposely not a political person. I do not like studying history. Yet, I see the purpose in these as a participant in American culture. I vote, therefore I need to be informed about the vote I am casting.
Dr Lee gives an overview of American history and what lead to the formation of our government and explains some of our laws as they were intended by the authors. A vast number of Americans are upset with the "change" we received from the last Presidential election. I don't think many realized how that change would infringe upon our lives.
Dr Lee describes what he sees as a mandate for change, back to what our country was supposed to be about in the first place. There is a lot of history and a lot of current facts which are used to support this view.
This book is deep, yet it all makes sense. I think it's interesting that he even uses examples from Lenin and Marx to support his views. He sites battles over the definition of family and marriage, the health care dilemma, problems in our schools and the basic dignity of human life as the major areas where a growing number of Americans want change. Or at least to get rid of the change we just had forced upon us.
The last chapter is "What You Can Do' and it really spells out steps you can take personally to start making a difference.
I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review.
