Overview

"This is a book for young people. It was written because I believe young people are important and that they have a huge part in God’s plan for the future of America and the Church. In fact, you are the future, and a big part of the present, too."
– Rick Boyer, The Learning Parent

God is calling you to greatness. No excuses. Be ready to answer the call.

As a young person, you have the chance to impact the future in a positive, godly way. The question is: "Are you ready for the challenge?"

If you’re a believer in Jesus Christ, your calling is to change the world. All you need to get started is the desire to influence your country and church in a positive way. Home schooling and the strength of the Christian family is helping to produce the future leaders of our culture, those with the potential to lead decades of revival and national reformation. If you ignore the challenge, there is little hope for America. A lot depends on you.

So, here is the challenge: Grow up. Now. Get busy. Take responsibility to change this world for God, because that’s exactly what He expects you to do. Your life matters, and God wants to make your life great.

It won’t be easy, and reading this book, you may feel it’s being a little tough on you. There are high expectations and little allowance for excuses. Life isn’t easy, but strive to make it a worthy one. Pioneer missionary William Carey once said, "Attempt great things for God. Expect great things from God."

"Take Back the Land is an important, landmark book for the homeschool movement. Written by homeschooling pioneer Rick Boyer, its message is aimed at the Joshua Generation whose special mission is nothing less than taking America back to its Christian roots. The author explains the meaning of this great mission and why he believes the Joshua Generation has been chosen by the Lord to carry it out."
- Samuel Blumenfeld, columnist The New America

"Take Back the Land is a call to young adults to get busy for the kingdom, to take the Word of God seriously and apply it in every area of life. Great exhortation to pray, seek wise counsel and act! Filled with ways that young adults can make an impact on the world that God created. Well done Mr. Boyer! Well done!”
- Corey Cheney, Christian Home Educators of Colorado and Homeschool Update Magazine

    A Good Read for Homeschoolers

    When I read this book, I wasn’t sure what to think. Rick Boyer talks about this generation being leaders, but it seems as if he doesn’t want women leaders outside of the family or church, which I do understand based on Proverbs 31. The rest of the book doesn’t seem to be geared towards teen girls if they are not to be leaders outside of the house.

    I did like learning that public schools were started in Germany. I also agree with Rick Boyer about age segregation in the church. Teens do need to be in the sanctuary with their parents and not talking with their friends or texting them.

    I would recommend this book for boys in high school, especially ones who have been homeschooled.

    Disclosure- I received Take Back the Land by Rick Boyer for free from Master Books. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I’m disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

    Take Back the Land

    Take Back the Land is a book written to teens and young adults to inspire them to step up and act as the Joshua generation which will go out and and make changes in our country and world. It is written especially for homeschool students and graduates but any young Christian will be able to apply the advice given by the author to his life. Rick Boyer includes 12 chapters which explain the problem areas and how to make changes in each. Some of the chapter included are Education, The Media, The Arts, The Family, The Church, and Where Do I Start?

    The author recommends that parents also read this book and I'm glad I did! I found lots of inspiration for my own life and will have to make some changes in order to inspire my own children. Every chapter was full of gems. Mr. Boyer's writing style is warm and motivating. I appreciate his advice to the young person to consult parents as he sets out to make changes where he has an influence. He gives the reader action steps to take in each area that he discusses and shares examples for those who have gone out to influence the world around them.

    This book will be included in my homeschool curriculum for my teens. I will assign a chapter each week which we can then discuss and apply. I hope to see some exciting changes in our family's future as we seek to go out into the world and influence it for the better. This is a must read for Christian teens and young adults!

    I received a free copy of this book from New Leaf Publishing in order to write this review and have shared my honest opinion.
