    I just finished the first chapter of this book and it challenged me to my core. Dave writes with conviction and inspiration from the Holy Spirit. This is a must read!

    I have just read the first chapter of "Radical," and all I can say is WOW! David Platt really brings the message home by asking questions like: "Am I going to believe Jesus?" and "Am I going to obey Jesus?" Many people are concerned with building bigger and bigger churches, yet forget the true purpose of meeting together and worshiping Christ. As David points out on pg. 17, "...the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves." I can't wait to read the rest of the book!You can get a copy of "The Radical Question" (the companion booklet for "Radical") by requesting it at:www.WaterBrookMultnomah.com/RadicalQuestion You can also do what I did and download the first chapter of "Radical" by David Platt by visiting this site:here.There is also information at the book website: www.RadicalTheBook.comCome on! What are you waiting for??

    Can't wait for this book! The first chapter of Radical is available to preview on the books website, and it is well worth your time to read! The writing isn't the best I've ever read, but the author's personal journey is a compelling one. He begins by telling the reader that he's been called 'the youngest megachurch pastor in history' and one page 2, he says that his 'model in ministry is a guy who spent the majority of his ministry time with twelve men'.Honestly, I was flabbergasted. Why would a megachurch pastor (aren't those usually the prosperity gospel type people?) point out that Jesus' ministry was more like the opposite of a megachurch, that Jesus said things like 'unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you' KNOWING that many people would leave and not accept it.The author discusses how the church and the individuals in the church have sold out to the American Dream - acting as though big congregations and big budgets and big programs are the important thing, and ignoring the radical call of Christ to give up everything and follow him.David Platt shares his stories, and the stories of other Christians who have radically followed Christ, against wordly logic.He ends the chapter by inviting the reader to come on a journey, to commit to Christ and to risk everything to obey him and love what he loves. I enjoyed the first chapter and can't wait until this book is released :)

    I had the chance to read the first chapter of the book and it grabbed my attention!How often we want the easy road of Christianity, but Jesus makes many seemingly radical statements to try to get people to not follow Him. He tells them they will have a homeless life, they will have to "carry a cross", they will have a problems, they will have to give up possessions and family. Sound like fun? Most would turn it down. Even those that have accepted may not have fathomed the reality of what it means to follow. Have you?To be truthful, sometimes I don't even like those decisions that I have to make in order to follow this "radical" movement. Pain, discomfort, and the like, are not fun when it comes to putting "all in" on something with no immediate benefits. However, that is how most of us are...wanting the immediate. "Set it [up] and forget it" is our view of Christianity. "I've made the choice, now let the blessings start rolling in"...is that you?David Platt's new book, "Radical" seems like it is going to be a very interesting book. From what I read in the first chapter, I look forward to reading the rest of the book!

    Healthy Uncomfortableness. I just finished David Platt's first chapter of his new book, Radical. Platt gets right to the point. Really, are we true followers of Jesus? Am I? Would I have continued following Him or would I have turned back (like most did) when He began talking about eating His flesh, drinking His blood, hating my family, and taking up my cross? Right now, I am not sure...I have been victimized by the American Dream, no doubt. Which Jesus am I and other believers really following? The Radical Jesus who demands everything yet promises everlasting joy or the domesticated, American Jesus who demands nothing except possibly church attendance and promises temporary comfort? Platt, through the Spirit, is going to make me more uncomfortable when I read the rest of his book. But I suppose and expect it to be once again, a needed dose of healthy uncomfortableness.
