Recommended Book: DO HARD THINGS

A growing movement of young people is rebelling against the low expectations of today's culture by choosing to "do hard things" for the glory of God. And Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge.

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. Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.

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 an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Armenian Golgotha – A Tale of One Man’s Survival

I’ve always wondered if anyone has ever survived to write his personal account about the daily lives of the Armenian intellectuals who were gathered at different parts of the Ottoman Empire on April 24, 1915 to be sent to their doom.

Now, for the first time in English, the memoirs of Father Grigoris Balakian’s Armenian Golgotha, is published for the whole world to read and have a glimpse of the horrible atrocities that befell on the Armenian community of modern Turkey. Father Grigoris Balakian’s book remains one of the few written accounts by a genocide survivor – full of evidence of the Turkish leaders’ connivance – who went on writing down his horrifying experience describing in gruesome detail what he saw and witnessed, and how he spent the next three years struggling to remain alive.


Faith that Endures, a must read

This book is suggested by Mr. Tom Hoglind.

"Most of us are blissfully ignorant of the true extent and nature of the persecution of Christians today. On top of that, we don't know how to effectively help our suffering brothers and sisters. Now Faith That Endures stands as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide on the persecution of the church today.

"Ron has the knowledge, experience, and insight to guide us in learning and appreciating the persecuted church in our time, and it shows in this excellent and moving book. He gives us a comprehensive guide, enriched with personal profiles and stories from around the world, and also shows the complexities of the issues that we despereately need to understand if we are to do more good than harm."
- Paul Marshall, senior fellow, Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom

Yes, this book is a MUST- READ. You might have thought that China, North Korea, India and Vietnam are the countries of persecution, but you will be taken aback when seeing that persecution is much more common than you might think and that it doesn't only involve getting beaten up and put in prison!!!
