Take Back the Land

Rick Boyer

"This is a book for young people. It was written because I believe young people are important and that they have a huge part in God’s plan for the future of America and the Church. In fact, you are the future, and a big part of the present, too."
– Rick Boyer, The Learning Parent

God is calling you to greatness. No excuses. Be ready to answer the call.
As a young person, you have the chance to impact the future in a positive, godly way. The question is: "Are you ready for the challenge?"

If you’re a believer in Jesus Christ, your calling is to change the world. All you need to get started is the desire to influence your country and church in a positive way. Home schooling and the strength of the Christian family is helping to produce the future leaders of our culture, those with the potential to lead decades of revival and national reformation.

If you ignore the challenge, there is little hope for America. A lot depends on you.  So, here is the challenge: Grow up. Now. Get busy. Take responsibility to change this world for God, because that’s exactly what He expects you to do. Your life matters, and God wants to make your life great.

It won’t be easy, and reading this book, you may feel it’s being a little tough on you. There are high expectations and little allowance for excuses. Life isn’t easy, but strive to make it a worthy one. Pioneer missionary William Carey once said, "Attempt great things for God. Expect great things from God."

Book Review

I have put this book on my son's summer reading list.   It is a 290 page call to action for Christian teens of our country.    More than that, it is a reminder for parents who are raising these young men and women.  

I love the fact the Rick Boyer talks to teens in language they can understand, but yet doesn't talk down to them.   He sets a standard that they can rise up and meet.   He understands that so many of our kids are waiting for someone to recognize their desire to do something for their community, their country and most importantly, their God.    Rick Boyer addresses this by challenging them to take back the land!
