Every so often a book comes a long that really speaks to you. Although I don't often whole-heartedly endorse any book, this is one such book. Rick Boyer has written a book that will inspire young people across America to stand up and start changing America. Right from the start he speaks to young people as those who can make a difference-not the normal "wait till you're older" or "you're just a kid, what can you do?" mentality. I was super-impressed with the entire book, because he instructs, yet encourages throughout.
First off, he encourages young people to start living as mature adults, and taking responsibility. Many young people today want nothing more than to sit around the house on their Playstation or other video game, or hang out with their friends and really end up accomplishing very little, if anything. Boyer encourages teenagers to do just the opposite. "Reject the labels society tries to paste on the young and get on about the business of serving God..."
Then, after his invigorating opening, Rick deals with various issues in America and the Church today. Education-public, Christian or home school? The media, and how Satan is using the movies, music, etc. to blind and brainwash multitudes of young people. The family-even many of our "Christian" families are falling apart as attacks against marriage and the family get more and more blatant. The Church-can young people be actively involved in their Church in a grown-up role, rather than just hanging in the gym for youth group during Church services? The Courts-how even a teenager can be involved in the political realm, and help get the right people into office.
I was impressed with Rick's ability to speak clearly and concisely on these matters from a Biblical viewpoint in a way that will be appealing to young and old alike. Not only does he tell what is wrong with our society today, he gives us ideas and inspiration for how to change it for the better.
Whether you have a child or teenager of your own, you are a teenager, or just a concerned onlooker, this is a book that you will not want to miss. If you only read one book in your entire life (other than the Bible of course :) then READ THIS BOOK!
