Review

Responses to "Radical" "In his compelling new book, Radical, David Platt delivers a powerful picture of the church in America today that, on key points, stands in sharp contrast to what the Bible shows us about the person and purpose of Jesus Christ. David 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 the nations! This is a must-read for every believer!""--Wess Stafford, president and CEO, Compassion Intl. ""We have moved into a generation of young leaders who have a passion to surrender the American dream if necessary in order to embrace fully, compassionately, and wholeheartedly a bigger dream--the Great Commission. I have never been challenged by an author more than I have by David Platt. Read Radical, be blessed, and be changed.""--Johnny Hunt, president, Southern Baptist Convention, and pastor, First Baptist Church of Woodstock ""Radical will cause you to bounce on a spectrum between two words: ouch and amen. Tough truths do that. They challenge us to examine our lives and then choose the lasting over the temporary. Read Radical if you're ready to live differently.""--Gregg Matte, senior pastor, First Baptist Church of Houston""David Platt's book will leave anyone who sincerely engages with his challenge dissatisfied--and faced with a decision: What will authentic faith look like in my life? This book has the potential to revitalize churches today to practice a radical, biblical lifestyle that can transform society and reach a lost world.""--Jerry Rankin, president, International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention""The church of the Lord Jesus has been seduced by a skilled seductress: the American dream. David Platt exposes this enemy of authentic Christianity and provides a way of escape through a radical faith that leads to a radical obedience. I am not the same after reading it. I trust that will also be true for you.""--Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary""It is almost impossible to keep the idols of our own culture from influencing us, whether we want it to happen or not. This is certainly true when it comes to the so-called American dream. We need our eyes opened! We need to be called out! In this challenging and thoughtful book, David Platt shows us the way to live for Someone and something bigger.""--Darrin Patrick, founding pastor, The Journey, St. Louis ""Sometimes people will commend a book by saying, 'You won't want to put it down.' I can't say that about this book. You'll want to put it down, many times. If you're like me, as you read David Platt's Radical, you'll find yourself uncomfortably targeted by the Holy Spirit. You'll see just how acclimated you are to the American dream. But you'll find here another Way, one you know to be true, because you've heard it before in the words of the Lord Jesus, perhaps most forcefully in the simple call 'Follow me.'""--Russell D. Moore, dean, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ""Through solid examination of the Scriptures and compelling testimonies from believers enduring persecution, my friend David Platt pulls back the curtain on subtle dangers weakening the church in our Western culture. Radical is the urgent call we need to care more about the spiritually lost and physically impoverished people of the world.""--Ed Stetzer, president, LifeWay Research" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

For many of us life 'slips by' in inconsequential years, our impact on the world being measured not by what we have done -but by resources consumed. This book un picks the 'American dream' (for which you can substitute the 'Western' dream) and opens eyes and provides a challenge of an alternate view, a better way to true contentment.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book. It has impacted me more then I can say and hope I will be more faithful in carrying out the 'great comission'. This is written by an American to an American audience, but it certainly can be applied to British Christians. What he says is stuff we should already know, do, think like, etc as Christians, but so much of the time in the West we don't because we're too comfortable. It is sad that this book ever had to be written, but I am thankful for it. Mr. Platt does not hesitate to 'call a spade a spade'. He is very clear and easy to read. He has no political agenda. He is, most importantly, Biblical. He writes this to see God glorified. Christ emptied Himself for us and called us to take up our CROSS and follow Him.

If you're not sure about buying this book, you can read the first chapter for free online, just Google it. Even the first chapter is helpful by itself.

David Platt makes many good points in this book, however there were also many that I just couldn't quite agree with, and some which (and perhaps it was just the wording) did not seem overly Biblical either. Having read "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan, which is a book on a similar theme, I think Chan approaches the topic from a less "aggressive" tone; Platt sounds as if he's perhaps still a little too frustrated with the issues. Both authors make some radical/crazy suggestions, and I appreciate their zeal, but I think on this topic, Chan has the better approach and would therefore recommend it over Radical.

I highly recommend this book!! Powerful, challenging and very thought provoking!! More than that though, it's changing the way I think and what it means to be a Christian. I'm wanting more than ever for there to be less talk and more walking the talk, so much so that a good Christian friend has also purchased the book and we're meeting weekly to prayerfully look at ways to start applying the challenge of this book and God's word to our lives!!

My wife introduced me to this book. This book is a must read and a must do book. I have been challenged and highly recommend that every believer reads this book and puts it into practice. I recommend it everywhere I go. We r overseas miss o Marie's and still found ourselves very challenged. Praise God for David Platt and may God bless him as he serves and lives the life of Christ among his flock in Birmingham and the world.

My youth pastor, who I work with, started to quote a lot from this book. So I bought it, wanting to see what all the fuss was about.
I am so glad that I did. This is an inspiring, incredible book. I recommend it to all who are wanting to see the works of a Marvellous and Wonderful God, who does still walk and move with His people!

This is a book that every Christian needs to read, David Platt looks at the church in America, although that could easily be translated to anywhere in the developed world, then he compares it with what he reads in the gospels, his conclusions are mind blowing and life changing. Don't miss it, this could change the world.

This book should come with a health warning - you could not fail to be challenged by it. So if you would to dawdle along, with a life you're comfortably existing in, don't order it! On the other hand if you want to be challenged to live out your Christianity by a talented down to earth author, hit buy!
