A Rebolution Against Rebellion

In their book "Do Hard Things," Alex and Brett Harris give a rebolutionary—not revolutionary—call to their peers: throw off the shackles of low expectations and rise up out of subdued comfort zones. They give five specific ways teenagers can really and truly change the world—right from their own backyard—simply by living life for God's glory—man's chief end. Life isn't all about fun and games, nor are we supposed to chant "me first!" amongst our families and friends. Our cry ought to be "Christ first!" and everything to His glory. As "teenagers" we are not limited to low expectations as the cultural norm. If Christian teens would stand together for Christ, our group would be formidable and overwhelmingly victorious. With Jesus Christ as our Savior, King, and Lord, we have nothing to lose, for one day we will have everything to win. This is a rebolution of the hearts and minds of courageous teenagers who will willing die (but most especially live) if need be to bring glory to Christ.

I received this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
