I previously mentioned that Alex and Brett Harris initiated an Amazon Book Bomb. Their offer:
Whatever number of books are purchased for the Amazon.com Book Bomb on March 25th, Alex and Brett will set aside that same number of books to give away to anyone who cannot afford one. They will also make them available to other ministries and organizations for free distribution.
Currently — get this — their book is #6 on Amazon! As I mentioned, this book is outstanding. I read a pre-publication copy and added this endorsement:
“In a culture of low expectations, non-stop entertainment and short attention spans, teenagers Alex and Brett Harris provide a voice of reason and a stirring exhortation to productive action in the name of Christ. As a university professor, I am not unaware of the Gen Y propensity to demand more recognition for less effort and to associate self-esteem with mere being rather than for actual accomplishment. Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations is a clarion call to teenagers everywhere to put away childishness and the fruit of immaturity and channel the energy of youth, in small ways and big ways, into world-changing activity with eternal significance. I highly recommend it.”
