The Coming Revolution by Dr. Richard G. Lee

The Coming Revolution by Dr. Richard G. Lee is a book that embraces the Tea Party movement and may not be for everyone, actually, it isn’t. Some people may love this book and others may hate it, but regardless of if you hate it or love it, it will make you think.

Book Description
“We are living in a time of monumental change.

Countless numbers of ordinary people, men and women from all walks of life, are joining forces to challenge the direction our national leaders are now taking us. Washington’s idea of change has failed, and most Americans are now frustrated, disappointed, and angry. The result is a long list of offenses, both perceived and real, that can easily set off a chain reaction that quickly becomes irreversible. And in the right environment, the situation can be explosive.

It is easy to see that many of the identical social and religious provocations that spurred the colonists toward the First American Revolution are present today, inspiring a new generation to seek what the Founders called “a new birth of freedom.” Signs are pointing to the fact that we are now standing on the threshold of a new American revolution, not with muskets and cannon balls this time but a revolution conscience, morality, and honor, dedicated to responsible social, moral, and political reforms, demanding change from the socialistic direction our political, judicial, and intellectual leaders have been taking us.

The Coming Revolution draws from the wellspring of America’s powerful past to reveal a nation of people who, under the hand of Divine Providence, will once again fight and win the coming battle for personal and national freedom.” – The Coming Revolution

My Thoughts
The Coming Revolution is a book written by a very well educated man. However, reading through it I found too many generalizations and misconceptions of even recent events to be able to fully like the book.

The quote that bothered me most was "Despite the ongoing War on Terror and the tragic events of September, 11, 2001, college students refused to condemn the actions of the 9/11 terrorist." There is no citation for it, so basically, I just see it as a statement that he said and he believes. As someone who was a college student when 9/11 happened, and as one again now, I completely disagree with that statement.

Much of the book is interesting, and is easily read. However, if you don’t fully agree with the ideas and concepts of the world according to Lee, you are not likely to enjoy reading this book.

* Thank you to the publisher of The Coming Revolution, Thomas Nelson, for providing me with a copy of this book for review as part of their BookSneeze program. All opinions expressed are my own.
