"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."




About the Author:
Rick Boyer and his wife, Marilyn are among the early trailblazers of the homeschooling movement. Building on their experience in training their own 14 children at home since 1980, Rick and Marilyn have written several popular books on homeschooling, Christian parenting and national reformation.

The Boyers are also the creators of the Character Concepts homeschool curriculum. Rick’s books include Home Educating with Confidence, Take Back the Land, The Socialization Trap, and The Hands-on Dad.

Rick’s speaking ministry has taken him from Massachusetts to California and from Europe to Japan. In addition to addressing homeschool conventions and churches across America, he is also the main speaker for the Take Back the Land Conference, a one-day gathering for homeschooled young people and their parents to train leaders for Christian cultural reformation. In addition, he is known to thousands of children through his “Uncle Rick” audio recordings.

Rick’s speaking style is a blend of homespun humor and a driving passion for God, families and revival in America.

Review:
"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

In Take Back the Land, Rick Boyer demands a new lifestyle from the Christian youth of today. He sees a generation of apathetic rebels, believers and unbelievers alike, and he knows Christians are called to something more than the typical self-centered, carefree adolescence in which American teenagers are prone to indulge themselves. Three battlefields in America require attention as soon as possible: the family, the church, and the courts. The solution, Boyer says, is in homeschooling, activism, and purposeful leadership.

Take Back the Land is not a collection of personal rants against “the state of modern America.” Though Boyer does point out many of the flaws in today’s educational and judicial systems, he has evidence for his claims. He uses a well-researched mixture of Scripture and other material sources, such as the Constitution and the Federalist Papers to support his ideas. He also gives practical suggestions for stepping into the leadership he advocates. Readers get an idea of both the problems that need to be solved and ways to begin to solve them. And as a parent of fourteen homeschooled children, the creator of homeschool curriculum, the author of several books, and an internationally-known speaker on the subject, Boyer is certainly qualified to give such suggestions.

Boyer identifies Christian youth as the “Joshua Generation.” His own generation is the “Moses Generation,” the leaders who brought America through international wars and trauma, but now requires the young men and women to bring it into the Promised Land. Noting several parallels between Joshua’s triumphant victories throughout the Old Testament and the challenges awaiting modern teen leaders, Boyer says, “What Christ expects of us is not the building of earthworks or the digging of foxholes. He wants us on the attack. Smashing Satan’s defenses, destroying his weapons, setting his captives free. That’s offensive warfare. That’s the Joshua style” (p. 34). And as Proverbs 21:22 says, “A wise man attacks the city of the mighty and pulls down the stronghold in which they trust” (NIV). The book is a call to grow up and take responsibility. Right now. Today.

An intense text, Take Back the Land ought to be required reading for every young Christian man and woman, as well as their parents. It is inspiring and engaging, and it instills a desire in the readers to step up and become the leaders God has called them to be. – Valerie Taylor, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Christianity in America
The rich Christian heritage of the U.S. is acknowledged by both historians and scholars. Many of the colonies were settled by people of deep religious convictions. When the new governments were formed, most statesmen shared the convictions that religion was "indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions".
