WHAT IS†JESUS WORTH†TO YOU?

It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...

BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?

In Radical, David Platt challenges†you to consider with an open heart how we have†manipulated the†gospel to fit our cultural†preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.

Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a†world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.

David Platt does what many aren't willing to do. Calls out the wicked nature of our own hearts in our lifestyle choices. I read through quickly, and it wasn't hard to give a hearty amen to what he ... Read full review
