WHAT IS JESUS WORTH TO YOU?
It’s easy for 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.
This is probably one of the most challenging Christian books that I’ve read. It’s one of those that’s so convicting you feel like you’d rather not read any further, but then it’s soo good too that you keep going! It really shows up how even as Christians we can be living way more by our culture’s standards than by the Bible’s, and how we easily we can settle for a comfortable ‘happy’ life on this earth, rather than risking everything for Jesus. It’s definitely one to read again and again as some of the ideas are so radical (!) they are hard to take in at first! and one to recommend too. There is lots of practical advice which helps stop you reading, being convicted but then not changing. Although some of the examples are quite American it’s still really applicable to our culture. A great one to read, ponder and to put into practice!
