Product Description

From the Back Cover

What did Jesus really mean when He said, "Follow me?" "Is it possible for people to say they believe in Jesus but not truly be born again? Is it possible for people to claim they have accepted Christ into their hearts yet not actually be Christians?" Not only is it possible, but according to Pastor David Platt, it's also highly probable. The author of the bestselling book "Radical" is convinced that many people in our churches today are misled as to what it truly means to be a follower of Christ. Western culture has drained the lifeblood out of Christianity and replaced it with a watered-down version of the gospel that is so palatable it isn't even real anymore. "Follow me," Jesus calls. Two simple words that change everything. You will never be bored. You will always have purpose. You will never lack joy. But it will cost you. This call is not an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life. a call to die. a call to live. Have you answered that call?

I read a book by Platt recently and decided to read some of his other books. This book wasn't as challenging as "Counter-Culture" but nevertheless was a worthwhile read. Whilst "Counter- Culture" addresses specific issues and how Christians respond to them (abortion, gay marriage etc,) "Follow me" deals with Biblical discipleship. Platt begins by examining the state of Evangelical Christianity in the West (represented by North Americans) suggesting that most people that calls themselves "Evangelical" are not truly saved and are not following Jesus. He highlights that this is largely to do with easy believism, the "Sinner's prayer" and failing to count the cost when coming to Christ.

"In a world where everything revolves around self- protect yourself, promote yourself, preserve yourself, entertain yourself, comfort yourself, take care of yourself- Jesus said "Slay yourself."

"With good intentions and sincere desires to reach as many people as possible for Jesus we have subtly and deceptively minimized the magnitude of what it means to follow him. We've replaced challenging words from Christ with trite phrases in the Church. We've taken the lifeblood out of Christianity and put Kool-aid in its place so that it tastes better to the crowds and the consequences are catastrophic. Multitudes of men and women at this moment think they are saved from their sins when they are not. Scores of people around the world culturally think that they are Christians when biblically they are not."

He reminds us of the verse in Matthew 7 vs 22-23

"Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

I had just finished reading Nik Ripken's "The Insanity of God" when I started reading David Platt's book, Follow Me. So had been pretty convicted about how I was putting my life, or at least my reputation on the line to proclaim Jesus in my day to day living. When I saw this book, I thought maybe it would be a good follow up to what I had just read, but turns out it wasn't quite like that.

Now to be honest I actually only read just under half of the book. However if you are already a Christian and are going on with the Lord, (perhaps by not reading the full book I am wrong in this judgement), you should probably skip reading this one. What I read was very much directed towards new believers or people coming back to the Lord after a long time away.

From what I read, the first half of the book is all about basically what it means to be a Christian, stuff you don't need to read if you are already there!

So I am sure it's a good book, but for me, it wasn't on my wavelength. So beware! Although I do like the book's cover...
