Love Riot: The Book

Many teenagers and young adults are walking out of the church and away from God.


A lot of it has to do with apathy. We easily become distracted and enthralled by the world, losing sight of the true character of God. Soon we’re more passive and disinterested in our faith than on fire for Christ.

How can we wholeheartedly follow Jesus, even when peer pressure, personal struggles, and the culture are opposing forces?

That’s what Love Riot is all about: how to live all-in for the Lord. Passionately. Actively. Relentlessly.

Sara Barratt, lead editor of, shares the ups and downs of her journey to follow Christ wholeheartedly in every aspect of life.

Whether you’re thriving or struggling in your relationship with God, this book is for you.

what you’ll read

Her call for young people to live radically devoted to Jesus addresses the heart as well as the everyday habits that cultivate a passionate love for Christ, such as:

  • getting outside of our comfort zones
  • fighting spiritual attack with biblical truth
  • making prayer a lifestyle
  • prioritizing intentional time in the Word
  • cultivating healthy, God-honoring relationships
  • engaging in social media and technology with purity and wisdom
  • sharing the Gospel boldly

why this book is for you

I love how Love Riot is filled with Scripture references and questions after each chapter to take the content to a personal level. Sara’s tips from what she’s learned as she seeks God are applicable and helpful. The stories of real people–both young and old, from the past and present–who took risks to share the Gospel gutted me and inspired me, literally to tears. Her honesty is relatable and down to earth; it’s almost like she’s having an in-depth conversation with you throughout the whole book.

Love Riot is just the book our generation needs. I tore it apart with notes and pen marks, laughed out loud, cried, and can’t stop thinking about it. It left me greatly impacted and encouraged to press on, even when the going gets hard.

I finished Love Riot feeling equipped, inspired, and challenged to live out the call to follow Jesus with joyful abandon.

I hope you’ll check it out. Prepare to be challenged and motivated!!

Let’s be a generation that lives for Christ with no retreats and holy stubbornness.

Sara Barrat, Love Riot
