Are You Ready to get Radical?

Missions Books, Should I Go?

radical by david plattI was tooling around on Twitter and came across a huge buzz about a new book from a young preacher named David Platt. The first thing I came across was a short but extremely powerful video promoting the book. Instantly I was hooked and intrigued. I ended up not only ordering the book, but downloading the free first chapter and reading it in about 30 minutes. I couldn’t put it down. It was so full of intense, honest, and heart wrenching truths about following Jesus, missions, and how some of us have become just too comfortable.

Personally, I had never heard of David Platt before, so started looking online to find more about him. During my research I found videos of sermons he has delivered, and now I am even MORE intrigued. This man is speaking truth, he is speaking of missions, and he is speaking of the radical call of Jesus. He also mentions how he believe that we have placed a Christian spin on the American dream and are no longer worshiping the radical Jesus of the Gospel. He says that we have redefined the teachings of Christ to be more comfortable and less radical then Jesus really is calling us to be.

The chapter I read was excellent and thought provoking – hopefully it will be life changing. I placed my order and can’t wait for it to arrive. You can check out your copyof the book, Radicalhere.

And if you have a moment, check out these videos. You won’t regret it.
