dohardAlex and Brett Harris, Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations. Colorado Springs: Multnomah Books, 2008. xiv + 241 pp. 9781601421128. BV4598.2.H36.

This book is written by the younger twin brothers of Joshua Harris who is well known for his books on relationships, beginning with I Kissed Dating Goodbye. These young men stand on their own two feet when it comes to writing and ministry, although I’m sure the example of older brother Josh was a catalyst in this venture. They also have a website about their Rebelution, which is the theme of this book. Their rebel-revolution is against mediocrity and the low expectations that teenagers live under today.

Do Hard Things is comprised of three sections. The first explores redefining the teen years from a time to goof off to a time during which great things can be accomplished. The second part looks at five kinds of hard. Many examples are given of teenagers being involved in things that would be considered “too difficult” for them. The third section explored getting started in the hard life and provides more examples and practical advice.

This is a great book for all teenagers and young adults to read. I wish that I had read it when I was a teen. There is also a study guide available for download if you want to discuss it with your friends.

“Pick up and read!”
