Be Rebellious by Megan Clinton is a call to young women everywhere to take charge of their destinies and become the women they were created to be. In Clinton’s words,”…rebel against a culture that tries to define success for us…”This young woman has her priorities in the right place as she confronts our degraded culture. Young women who don't rebel are just being used by the political elite to advance their own careers at the expense of young people's lives.
This book covers material from the Song of Solomon through the rise of social media. Her examples of rebels from the Bible are especially inspiring. Rebels don’t have to bomb buildings or hack into computers or be outrageously dressed. Mary the mother of Jesus dared to believe an angel who told her God would use her to do impossible things. Esther risked her life to save her people by violating a law and going before the King uninvited. Ruth turned her back on an idolatrous culture and followed her widowed mother-in-law to a strange land and an invisible God.
Books like this give me hope for the future. Take heart, America! Not all young women are spending all their time having one-night stands and abortions while embracing communism and rejecting family and faith. Some, like Clinton and her readers, are rebels in the best sense of the word.
I received a free electronic advance copy of this book for my review.
