The Coming Revolution by Dr. Richard Lee
Dr. Richard G. Lee, pastor of Atlanta's First Redeemer Church, has established himself as an advocate for conservative Christian values. A recurring theme in his books is "there's still hope." No matter how bad things seem, they are never so bad that God cannot show us the way back.
The Coming Revolution basically reminds us of how America came in to existence. The earliest settlers brought their Christian values with them, and those values shaped the thinking of the founders and the documents that created our form of government. It took faith and courage for our forebears to break away from British rule and establish a free country. Our freedoms are now threatened by a government gone wild. Dr. Lee reminds us that we still have people of faith and courage like our founders. And, it's possible for us to "revolt" by speaking up, participating in the process, and voting our conscience.
The author spent too much time reviewing the early history, but, in my opinion, not enough on the latter part where he tells the reader how to get involved in politics. Perhaps he was more aware than I am of how much the general public knows about American history. Some people might not like the fact that he supports the Tea Party movement. However, I think he lays out the conservative viewpoint very well without some of the hateful rhetoric that some commentators use.
All in all, I think every adult should read it to review American history and be aware of what's at stake in the coming elections. Sample and/or buy it on Amazon.
