About The Authors:
This is the first book by Alex and Brett Harris that I have read and I will definitely be reading their previous work, Do Hard Things, in the future! The Harris brothers write with a honest and openness that will definite attract their main target, teenagers! Start Here is an easy to read book that will really make teens, and actually adults too, think about ways that will bring God's Glory to the world around them, right where they are! It is all about getting off your butt, and out of your comfort zone to bring God to the world around you!
I love that there are young adults like Josh and Brett Harris (and their brother, Joshua Harris, author of Dug Down Deep and I Kissed Dating Goodbye) who will be the generation to reach my children (ages three and 20 months) in the future! These guys are on fire for the Lord and in the never ceasing world of teenage rebellion, this is not only refreshing to see, but so needed! This book not only includes awesome real-life stories from teens and the authors themselves, but also has a wonderful discussion guide included, which would be perfect for youth groups, Bible studies and for awesome discussions between teens and their parents!
I highly recommend this book and give it a resounding thumbs up!
