With over 14 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.

Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Study: A Survey of the Bible (vols. 1-4 and Answer Key) by Starr Meade
Using an easy-to-follow study guide format, this overview of the Bible leads students of middle or early high school age through Scripture, training them to grow in knowledge and love for God’s Word.

The Bible is often neglected or weakly emphasized in the education of our children. However, author Starr Meade contends that God’s Word is the most important thing a Christian will ever study. This introductory overview of the message of the Bible encourages middle and high school students to explore God’s Word for themselves. Available in multiple volumes or as a set, The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Study leads young teens through the story of the Bible chronologically, teaching them about important themes and topics, such as the role of God as the main character of his own story and the relationship between Scripture’s divine inspiration and human authorship.

Students can either use the text as a supplementary companion to their own reading of Scripture, or they can simply use the study guide to move through the Bible from beginning to end.

Recommended ages: “Junior High and Early High School”
