Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations
Jonathan Stemberger's review
Nov 15, 2011
Alex and Brett Harris seek to encourage young Christians to take a stand against low cultural expectations in the book Do Hard Things. Their argument is made from a biblical viewpoint of what a young adult is capable of doing through God’s power. They strengthen their argument by providing personal stories of how they have made a change; they also back up their case with historical evidence, scientific facts, and others stories. As a writer I think that the use of evidence is a personal underused skill that I need to work on. The Harris brothers also break down their argument in pieces in order for the reader to be able to follow and take action at their words. I think that including application is a good way to inspire and change people, but I feel it should be carefully made in order to not sound too intrusive.
