The Coming Revolution by Dr.Richard G. Lee

The Coming Revolution          This is a call to action. We have allowed government control over our lives for too long  In this 232 page book  Dr. Richard G. Lee, founding pastor of First Redeemer Church in metropolitan Atlanta, has set down the need for change. A change not only in our people but a change in how we are governed. This coming revolution is a quiet one but just as important as the one that got us freedom from British rule.
            “Revolutions don’t just happen,” he states in the Introduction, “They happen because of widespread frustration and a history of disappointments, insults, and provocations of many kinds that eventually compel people to respond.”
            In the first four chapters, Dr. Lee gives the story of the founding of our nation and the steps taken to break away from British rule. We were founded on Christian principles,  Dr. Lee contends, as he details the people who came to our shores for religious freedom . A good retelling of history is found here.
            I found this book to be informative and  inspiring. It makes the point that we Americans need to hold our political leaders accountable to us. The seventh and last chapter of the book gives some suggestion of what we can do.
            The change must come in the voting booth. But in order for us to be informed we must have the facts. Dr. Lee presents us with the facts. It is not argumentative or confrontive. It is not subversive. What it presents is a call to wake up and do something about it.
            I would recommend this book as supplemental reading in political science classes.
            I recieved this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com <http://BookSneeze.com(http://BookSneeze.com)> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions expressed are my own.
