Book Review: Radical
June 10, 2011
by David Platt will make you think long and hard about your life as a believer. Do we really live out Biblical truth or are we often not living Biblically because of our need to realize the comforts of our American culture? Does the American dream of success and self-accomplishment actually cause us to think less about the command to share Christ and disciple people to live their lives for the glory of God and instead think more about financial security and personal pleasure? And, has the idea of the American dream affected our view of the Church – to be bigger, to have outstanding programs and facilities, etc. This is a book that will challenge you to return to the basics, reading the word, praying, reaching out to serve others, having a global vision, and being a part of a multiplying church community.
