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.

    " I absolutely LOVED this book! It says well what I've been struggling to communicate for years to those I pastor. Our vision of the normal Christian life is warped. I pray that by God's grace, Radical will become the new normal. Alice and I have already made plans to change our family's pattern based on the challenges Platt lays down. Can't wait to see how Jesus reveals His grace more full and free as we pursue making "radical" into "normal!" "

    " I'm mostly raring this so highly for the incredible sermon series that birthed the book. It was so pivotal for me that it's hard to separate the book from the sermons. The sermons are much more thorough, so if this book interests you I would highly recommend listening to Platt's Radical series online. "

    " This is a difficult book for the average American Christian to read. Not because the language used is hard to understand, or because it ventures into pie-in-the-sky uber-spiritual waters, but because it is so crystal clear. Expect to get your toes stepped on. American Christians have been blinded by the pursuit of wealth and comfort, and have all but forgotten the Great Commandment and the Great Commission are the crux of what being a Christian is all about--this is the essential point of the book. The author points out the blind spot of an American church that stockpiles money and things while a huge chunk of the world starves. I was thoroughly convicted about my current lifestyle while reading this book. I haven't read any other reviews of this book, but I suppose some could criticize it as being legalistic. I don't know, but in a nation where all I seem to read from Christian authors or hear from the pulpit is a watered-down version of the Gospel that doesn't require any real sacrifice, I found this book honest and refreshing. I especially appreciated the "Radical Challenge" at the end of the book that helps individuals take practical steps toward making significant changes in their lives toward serving God, rather than pursuing the American dream.
