Publisher's Description

Take the next step. From radical followers of Christ to radical communities of faith.
 
In Radical, David Platt’s plea for Christians to take back their faith from the American Dream resonated with readers everywhere, and the book quickly became a New York Times bestseller. Now in Radical Together, the author broadens his call, challenging us to unite around a gospel-centered vision.
 
How, he asks, might such a vision reshape our priorities as the body of Christ? How might well-intentioned Christians actually prevent God’s people from accomplishing God’s purpose? And, how can we best unleash the people of God in the church to carry out the purpose of God in the world?
 
Writing to everyone who desires to make an impact for God’s glory—whether you are an involved member, a leader, or a pastor—Dr. Platt shares six foundational ideas that fuel radical obedience among Christians in the church. With compelling Bible teaching and inspiring stories from around the world, he will help you apply the revolutionary claims and commands of Christ to your community of faith in fresh, practical ways.


From the Trade Paperback edition.

David has written several books, Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me and most recently Counter Culture (to be released February 2015).

Editorial Reviews

Response to Radical and Radical Together

"I love this book! Please read it. God is using David Platt to lead His church into much-needed reform. Radical Together is filled with tremendous insight from a man who loves Christ’s church. I don’t know of a church leader that I trust more."
-Francis Chan, best-selling author of Crazy Love
 
"I have the privilege of knowing David Platt, and I assure you that his life and ministry commend what he has written here. Read Radical Together. Like the right medicine, it may be more helpful than comfortable. In fact, my prayer is that it may be an explosion, shifting many churches from centering wrongly on ourselves to centering rightly on Christ and his agenda for us—and for his world."
-Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington D.C.
 
"Radical caused many Christians to be shaken and to reevaluate their lives. Radical Together will do the same for our churches. Radical Together is such a clarion call for churches across the world to follow the clear teachings of the Word that I began to pray that this book would indeed move thousands of churches to become more biblically radical. Many churches and Christians will never be the same again after reading this book and following its biblical precepts."
-Thom Rainer, President and CEO, LifeWay Christian Resources, and coauthor of The Millenials and Simple Church
 
"David Platt challenges Christians to wake up, trade in false values rooted in the American dream, and embrace the notion that each of us is blessed by God for a global purpose—to make Christ’s glory known to all nations! Radical is a must-read for every believer!"
-Wess Stafford, President and CEO, Compassion International

"Platt’s arguments…emerge at a post-excess moment, when attitudes toward material life are up for grabs. His book has struck a chord."
-David Brooks, The New York Times
 
"Platt challenges affluent Christians to rethink devoting vast resources to providing entertaining experiences and lattes for seekers. His call for faithful allocation of resources and an empowered laity will resonate across the Christian spectrum."
-Publishers Weekly
 
"What's significant about Platt's perspective is that it is coming from a solidly conservative voice in the evangelical mainstream."
-Jonathan Merritt, The Huffington Post
 
"This book is a challenge for Christians to wake up, trade in their false ’American dreams,’ and live a Christ-centered life."
-Jay Peroni, CFP, Crosswalk.com
 
"[Platt is] biblical, straightforward, brutally honest, and writes a powerful narrative as he sets out to discover what Jesus really taught to first century followers."
-Matthew Robbins, TheChristianManifesto.com
 
"Throughout the book, Platt exposes the indifference of American evangelicals. It was hard for me to put the book down, though I can't say that I enjoyed it. I was convicted. I was uncomfortable. But mostly I was (and am) challenged. Challenged to live a life that looks more like that of a true follower of Christ."
-John Bird, DiscerningReader.com

    This was excellent. I hope others feel as I do and make

    "Radical" changes for God. It is not something one would

    do overnite but it can be done and should be done. We

    have lost the way and need to re-focus what we do in the

    church and why.

    Raising the Bar on Radical

    Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God is the follow up to David Platt's recent book Radical: Taking back Your Faith from the American Dream. I received this pre release review copy which doesn't include the study guide that will be included when the book releases next month (April 2011).

    Platt sets out to challenge the Church, and especially the local church, to become all that Jesus had in mind for His church. It's not about mega churches, multi-sites and the best worship team; it's about reaching the world for Christ: being the hands, feet and heart of Christ throughout the world.

    He challenges assumptions, and gives practical examples and in doing so asks the members of the local church to consider whether the good that is being done is really what Jesus would do. As I read I kept thinking of examples of the good being the enemy of the best, and wondering what the world would look like if every Christian church now in existence would dare to be as radical as ‘The Church At Brook Hills'. They've eliminated much of the 'good' to have resources to do the best. Adoptions, short term and long term missions, church plants and discipling all seem to be skyrocketing, and not because of programs but because the church looked at where it was heading and dared to ask if those plans were really going to help them fulfill the great commission.

    As ‘The Church At Brook Hills' re-evaluated what they had done and what they were planning on doing, they decided to get Radical, and do as Jesus had commanded: start here in Jerusalem and go to the ends of the earth, baptizing, teaching and making disciples. They started in Birmingham and are reaching out to their Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

    ‘The Church At Brook Hills' is not my church and it's not your church. The specifics things that worked for Dr Platt and the congregation that he serves may not work for me or for you. But the principles are the same, and maybe it's time to evaluate what we're doing and how we're serving Christ in our local churches. Is it the best we can do, or are we just settling for 'really good'?

    My prayer is that every local church in the world would dare to get ‘Radical Together' so that every existing people group would come to know the gospel message that Jesus left for us to spread.

    The book releases in April and can be pre-ordered now at many on-line booksellers

    I received a copy of this book free from Waterbrook/Multnomah in exchange for reviewing this book.
