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!

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Trip’s written a book that I think every young person needs to read. His passion for Jesus and this generation comes through loud and clear on every page. I can’t wait to see the impact this message has on a generation that’s hungry for purpose.”
—- Lecrae, Grammy awarding winning artist @lecrae — Lecrae

“So often we talk about wanting to make a difference, but we don’t actually get up and do anything. My buddy, Trip Lee, has written a book that will light a fire under a generation that’s taught to take the easy way out. He’s challenged us to ‘rise’ and live in the story that God’s created for us. I know I’ll be recommending this book to everyone I know.”

—- Stephen Curry, NBA player @stephencurry30 — Stephen Curry

“Rise is a phenomenal book that captures the heart of our culture. As soon as I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Trip challenges you to be REAL, and shows you how to live your life as a young adult in the world today. Great read.”
—- Sam Acho, NFL linebacker, humanitarian @thesamacho — Sam Acho

“Trip has written a book I wish I would’ve read when I was younger. His passion, wisdom, and desire to challenge the younger generation is a testament to the work God’s doing through Trip and the work he can do through us all.”
—- Kirk Franklin, Grammy award winning and multi-platinum recording artist @kirkfranklin — Kirk Franklin

“I loved reading Rise. Many times in this book I found myself meditating over pages after I read them. I was encouraged, inspired, and challenged all the way through. The culture expects us to waste time but God wants us to use our time for impact no matter our age. This is an amazing read for those who want to use their time wisely and make a difference for the Kingdom.”
—- Justin Forsett, NFL running back @Jforsett — Justin Forsett
