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!

"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.
I am 33 years old and I found this book beneficial to me because it points out so many things I remember a a youth and sad to say I still do today. Tripp Lee is just down to earth and real with the truth. The parts about not wasting your youth and going against the world that is saying your too young for this or that was a eye opener for a lot of older and younger ppl. Also understanding of procrastination and time management... Definitely made me have a few convictions on my heart MUST READ OR LISTEN 😀👍🏾
I'm a big fan of Trip Lee's music and I was curious to see if the book would have the same impact on me. The performance of the narrator was great. Overall I loved the way Trip tied the "Word of God" into to the book. This was my first audiobook and it was a great experience.
Trip Lee has written a book that is exceptional for young and old,listened twice and want to listen again.
