Society says youth is a time for carefree self-expression, but Trip Lee says God has called everyone to RISE from slumber, above low expectations, and to live for the risen King. The world tells us that our early years are to be irresponsibly enjoyed rather than devoted to meaningful pursuits. We're told that responsibility and commitment are burdens to be put off as long as possible. And so, most of us spend our youth in a sad state of slumber - sleeping in on life until we're forced to get up. The problem is that life has already begun. It's happening right now. And God has called you to live it.
In this powerful book, Trip Lee argues it's time to wake up and RISE, to live the way we were created to live. Young or old, we've been called to live for Him. Right now. Young believers face the same problems as older Christians, but they feel them in unique ways. RISE addresses those core problems in an engaging, profound, and life-changing way. Don't just sit there: RISE!

"Rise! No really rise!!"
I think this is a great book for inspiring young Christians to live out loud in this fallen world and I applaud Trip for writing it. only question I have is why didn't they have Trip read it, not that the narrator didn't do a good job.
loved this book. very real outlook on being young in the life Christianity. GreAt book for boys
"Loved it! Conversational and easy to follow!"
Mr Lee has a beautiful heart and his passion comes through and his writing. Passing this on to my 14 year old who loves his music!
"A little arrogant.. but overall a good read."
It took me a minute to get past how arrogant he comes off initially however the scriptures and biblically sound principles outlined in his book outweigh that. It was an overall good read.
"trips me out"
it was a great book and story I enjoyed it very much thanks be to God
narrated well. however it felt as though I was being bashed not enlightened or guided. Good scripture harsh delivery.
"Youth Does Not Have To Be Wasted On the Young"
I would this book to people between the ages of 15 and 25. Trip Lee is wise for his age.
Trip Lee speaks directly to young people the truth of our millennial condition; delay, apathy and entitlement. He encourages us not to waste time, live in a way that pleases God, be grateful and love other people. He does this without being judgmental or preachy. I love that he covers issues others don't touch like porn addiction and young marriage. I especially like that he rejects the idea that you have to play and take it easy in your youth instead of getting serious about your faith and your impact on the world. This book should be used in youth bible study. I'm encouraged.
He captured the essence of Trip Lee's tone.
Maturity is not taught in our culture. Young adults are encouraged to stay immature and irresponsible for as long as possible as if their lives will be better with more folly. This book dispels that myth that youth is a time for indecision and delay. Trip Lee encourages youth to make an impact now.
Not my favorite but it had its strengths.. Had some good analogies in there! If you're a new Christian.. Go ahead!
Great teaching. Practical, and very thought provoking! Would definitely recommend to friends and loved ones.
"thankful for audiobooks"
I am easily bored with reading now and am thankful for audiobooks, such as this. I can still receive the knowledge and wisdom that God has to impart into us through his willing vessels.
