Smith resounds John Adams’ insight in The Storm Before the Calm, with an expansive look at the dangers that lie ahead for our nation when tyranny rules the day.

In the new novel by author K. R. Smith, General George Washington encounters divine visitors during the bitter winter of 1777 while with the Continental Army encamped upon the farm of Isaac Potts near Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. In this extraordinary encounter, Washington is shown three great perils that would confront America: (1) The Revolutionary War, (2) The Civil War and (3) The third peril which was the most terrifying of all as America was attacked and invaded by foreign armies.

This third peril takes center stage in Smith’s gripping novel, The Storm Before the Calm: America & Israel at the End of Days (published by WestBow Press).

From the introduction:

On July 7, 1775, John Adams expressed his great concern for America in part of a letter to his wife, Abigail, saying, “Our consolation must be this, my dear, that cities may be rebuilt, and a people, reduced to poverty, may acquire fresh property. But a constitution of government, once changed from freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost, is lost forever. When the people once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their right of defending the limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.

Smith resounds John Adams’ insight in The Storm Before the Calm, with an expansive look at the dangers that lie ahead for our nation when tyranny rules the day.

Smith contends that while the U.S. and Israel are vital links in God's agenda, they are also nations which have largely forgotten the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Overtly secular lifestyles and repudiation of God will not go unpunished, says Smith. We will reap what we sow.

The suspense-driven plotline in The Storm Before the Calm describes, in stark detail, the results of not following a national path of righteousness. Yet, it also shows God’s continuing love, mercy and protection for His people, even in the midst of great disaster.

K. R. Smith holds an evangelical Honors Master of Divinity degree, an engineering degree and a private pilot’s license. He served 11 years in U.S. Army heavy field artillery units and was a member of his group's competitive High Power Rifle Team. He is married with two children and five grandchildren.
