Item Description...
Overview
Two Christian teenage writers challenge their peers to create a brighter future, combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility and providing humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life "rebelutionaries" in action.

Publishers Description
The next generation stands on the brink of a rebelution With over 10 million hits to their website TheRebelution.com, Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge in a growing movement of Christian young people who are rebelling against the low expectations of their culture by choosing to do hard things for the glory of God. Written when they were 18 years old, Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential. Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life and map a clear trajectory for long-term fulfillment and eternal impact. Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of revolution already in progress challenges the next generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Recommended!  Oct 25, 2008
This is a must read for students in junior high and high school. It changes the way they would walk through the teen years. Parents, we aren't exempt from doing hard things either. Read this to see how we can still impact our world and change the way our children process the adolescent years.
 
Excellent book.  Oct 24, 2008
This is a very challenging book. I am planning to buy it for all those I know who work with teens. It's my son's Christmas present. It's an easy read but the ideas are life changing.
 
Worth reading  Oct 23, 2008
I've just finished reading, Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations written by the little brothers of Josh Harris famous himself for writing I Kissed Dating Goodbye. Overall the book is outstanding.

Alex and Brett Harris talk about a counterculture of youth determined to be a part of "A Teenage Rebellion against Low Expectations."

"If you look back over history you'll find ... movements that were started (or fueled) by young people. The problem is, most of these movements were actually revolts against God-established authority (like parents, church , or government), and many were ultimately crushed or twisted toward another end.
All those failed revolutionary attempts are a discouraging record as far as teen efforts go, but not for rebelutionaries. We're not rebelling against institutions or even against people. Our uprising is against a cultural mind-set that twists the purpose and potential of the teen years and threatens to cripple our generation. Our uprising won't be marked by mas riots and violence, but by millions of individual teens quietly choosing to turn the low expectations of our culture upside down." (DHT p25.)

I'm not going to lay out a lengthy review what I will say is this: I plan on buying a copy for my nieces and nephews this Christmas.
 
It's time to stand up to our culture!  Oct 22, 2008
It is time to stop saying "He's SUPPOSED to act that way...he's a "TEENAGER"! This book proves that we don't have to accept that way of thinking. It has served our family well as a morning devotion with our 2 boys - ages 17 and 13. Every parent with "young adults" living at home needs to make this book a priority!
 
Excellent  Oct 20, 2008
Our 23-year-old son is getting a lot of out this
book and hopes to start a bible study using it.
