A new Revolution is coming. That is what you will read when you open this piece of literature, entitled "The Coming Revolution", by Dr. Richard G. Lee. And yes I agree that there is something about to happen in this great country of ours.
Way too long now, our country has been going down a path or might I say a "slippery slope", and if we as a nation don't do something, we will be finding ourselves in turmoil. That is if we are not there already.
"The Coming Revolution" is an extremely well researched and written document, which gives plan factual information which shows just how our country, The United States of America, was founded, and exactly by which principles our Founding Fathers worked so diligently.
Dr. Lee, takes the reader from how this land was settled, and also gives direct history of the shaping of America. As you read this selection, you will find yourself thoroughly engrossed in the dialogue and you will find it hard to disagree with what the author is telling us. This is because he has taken the time to research everything he has written in the book.
Does "The Coming Revolution" mean there will be fighting in our great country? Hopefully not of a physical nature, but, we as Americans can change the direction we are headed in, by learning about what is going on, making our voices heard, and by utilizing our votes in order to produce the change which we desire. Dr. Lee, emphasizes that by sitting back and letting someone else do the work, is not going to work any longer. We all need to step up and be responsible for our country.
"The Coming Revolution", by Dr. Richard G. Lee, is a sure way to learn, so that we are not doomed to repeat the mistakes of our past.
Here is an excerpt from one section of the book: This comes from the section 'The Pathway to Victory' and deals on how to prepare for the Revolution:
"First: We Must Prepare Personally
"Second: We Must Partner with Others"
"Third: We Must Learn The Process"
"Fourth: We Must Participate In The Arena"
"Fifth: We Must Proclaim The Truth"
"Finally: We Must Persevere Until We Prevail"
I'm sure that anyone who picks up this book will be enlightened and moved into action. I know I have been. Thank you goes out to Thomas Nelson Publishing and Book Sneeze for giving me the opportunity of both reading and reviewing the book. I'd also like to thank Dr. Richard G. Lee for providing the information and catalyst for reform and action.

What better way is there than to start is there than spending time with God! We are blessed with a new book from Guideposts that gives a devotional for every day of the year. Each reading has Scripture and a section of teaching to provide a pickup for the day. The extra motivation from the "Faith Step" helps us move forward each moment with what we need to do. This book is written by women, and is geared mainly toward women, but men can gain encouragement from it as well.
This book will make a wonderful gift for your wife, daughter, mother, etc. I know my wife has enjoyed the book and that we will be giving it as a gift. I am happy to recommend this devotional, and thank Litfuse for including me in the blog tour.
About the book:
"Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day. Spend time with Jesus at the beginning of each day and experience His nearness and peace in a new way throughout the year. Each day’s selection includes: • a Bible verse • an entry based on Jesus: His words, miracles, and parables; His wisdom, compassion, and comfort; His mystery, power, divinity, and humanity • a “faith step” that will inspire and challenge readers to apply the day’s message to their lives

Claudia, a troubled young lady is dealing with the death of her Teacher and Coach ten years after her tragic death. Victor, her husband and ADA for the county in which they live has reopened the cold case, and this is extremely upsetting for Claudia. This is one of the main story lines in the action packed novel, called "The Crossing", by Serita Jakes.
During a return trip from a football game the bus in which the team and accompanying students and coaches are aboard, stops at a train crossing. At that particular time, a lone gunman enters the bus and shoots the bus driver, a student and football player, Casio, and searches out BJ the cheerleading coach and shoots her several times, causing her death. Following the investigation, the police come up empty and it would appear that the killer is never found. This is a novel which I was unable to put down because you never know what is going to happen next.
As for Claudia, who I believe to be the main character, is devastated at the loss of her coach and friend. BJ Remington. The beginning of the novel starts with some introduction of the characters in this story, which I found necessary in order to get the full picture of the entire story. Serita Jakes took the time in delving into each character, in order to paint a clear picture.
As the story unfolds, Claudia is laying on the floor of the bus with her dying coach/friend and you hear BJ speaking. I found that she was trying to figure out just what had happened to her and at the same time, she is speaking to God. You will find BJ speaking and praying at the beginning of each chapter. It sets the tone for each chapter. Claudia is the daughter of the town Pastor who you will learn more about as you read this story.
It's ten years later, and Claudia is now married to Victor Campbell, the ADA for the county. Casio Hightower, the ex-football player, now Police Detective is teaming up with Victor Campbell to reopen the case his father had initially been involved with at the time of the murder.
I don't want to get to involved with the overall story here, because I do not want to spoil it for anyone who picks this novel up and reads it. It's best to say the "The Crossing" by Serita Jakes is a wonderful read. I learned that even in death, there would appear to be some final thoughts and dreams of the person who is about to die.
Follow BJ, Claudia, Georgie, Casio, Victor and the rest of the cast of characters as you read and become involved with the story. You will not be let down.
I'd like to thank Blogging for Books, and Waterbrook Press for giving me the opportunity to read and review this heart wrenching and uplifting story. "The Crossing" by Serita Jakes is sure to be a Best Seller.
