The Coming Revolution is a general look at history. The subtitle of the book says “signs from America’s past that signal our nation’s future”, and this book is about looking into America’s past. Dr. Lee particularly focuses on the religious aspects of America’s history and how this played a part in the American Revolution. He makes an argument for religion playing a large role in the revolution he believes is beginning in present America.
As far as a general history on our nation, I thought this book did fine. There were some details I felt were changed to support his particular views, but the history was intact. My biggest disappointment in this book came from some of the beliefs about God’s role. Dr. Lee makes the statement that as long as there is a remnant of believers in the United States that God will protect our country. Why would he do more for us as a nation than he did for the nation of Israel? I also disagreed with his views on salvation, but that was not a surprise for me. All in all I was not overwhelmingly impressed with this book.
