IS JESUS WORTH THIS TO YOU? "Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for? Do you believe him enough to obey him and to follow him wherever he leads, even when the crowds in our culture--maybe even our churches--turn the other way?" In Radical, David Platt invites you to encounter what Jesus actually said about being his disciple, and then obey what you have heard. He challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated a God-centered gospel to fit our human-centered preferences. With passionate storytelling and convicting biblical analysis, Platt calls into question a host of comfortable notions that are common among Christ's followers today. Then he proposes a radical response: live the gospel in ways that are true, filled with promise, and ultimately world changing.

Eric: I liked a lot about it, but some parts I dont agree on. He says that say for example a person who has never heard of God dies, he goes to Hell because he knew deep inside that God existed. Although this is possible, I think its more Gods choice on who He brings to Heaven from those who never heard His message. God can do whatever He wants, and if a baby dies in the womb and He wants it in Heaven, then Hell bring it there. But besides some bray areas for me, its a great book.

Natasha: Natasha: An amazing book; once you read it, there is no going back to the churchy, Christianity-is-an-accesory lifestyle. Platt really hits the head on this one, but it is obviously given to him by God. Take the challenge. Too many who call themselves Christians in America, or in fact any place that has given God anything but first place in their lives, do not follow Him as if they really love Him. We are radically different than any other false religion or belief, and we should live as such!
Richard: Amazing book. Really challenges the reader to live as a radical disciple.
