Description of Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live. by David Platt

For some believers, the cost of following Christ is obvious. Acceptance of the Gospel sometimes means loss of freedom, complete alienation, or even death. But for many of us, the sacrifice is a little harder to find.

What if you didn't have a dramatic life-changing encounter with Christ? What if you've always grown up in the church and been immersed in Christian culture your whole life? What does it mean for you to count the cost and follow Him?

In Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, David Platt sought to expose the ideas in American Christianity that are antithetical to the Gospel, to show what we must let go of in true discipleship. In Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live., Platt seeks to show whom we must take hold of. In order to live as authentic disciples, Platt believes we need an authentic encounter with the person of Jesus Christ, who He is, what that means, and to count the cost of truly following Him.

Look afresh at the invitation Jesus offers, and discover perhaps for the first time the joy and purpose that comes from abandoning your life to His.

5 Stars"Follow Me" is a costly call
David Platt's book "Follow Me" literally follows on the heels of his book "Radical," once again challenging the very core of what many Jesus followers believe. Platt argues that salvation isn't merely "professing Jesus as personal Lord and Savior," but instead, is a personal relationship that evidences itself in obedience to God's Word. Following Jesus, is a call to die to self, to let Christ live through you, Platt says. In this scripturally based book (just take a peek at the footnotes if you don't believe me), Platt purports that it's God's will for every disciple to make disciples. He challenges every disciple to be a disciplemaker, and he encourages readers to ask hard questions of themselves. This it not a book to read quickly in one sitting. I guess you can, but then you'll be missing the point. "Follow Me" is a book to spend time with, to chew on, to pray over. It's a challenging read, as many books are. But the best part is when Platt asks you to do something with what you've learned. He asks you to write and then live out a personal disciplemaking plan. Because after all, what good is knowledge if you don't put it into action? Followers of Jesus don't make disciples by learning more and more, but by doing something about what they've learned -- by passing it on -- by discipling another. That's what I like about this book. You're challenged to do apply biblical principles of disicplemaking. It makes me wonder. What would truly happen if each follower of Jesus discipled one person each year? What kind of multiplication would we see? * Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher for this review. However, the opinions expressed in the review are my own.
