Description of Radical by David Platt
In a culture where wealth abounds, where the American Dream rules as king, and where church is often considered a form of entertainment, have we missed the point of what it means to be a Christ-follower?
David Platt urges readers to compare the elements of modern-day faith with those of the New Testament church. In doing so, most of us will find that we’ve replaced the Christ-centered model of Christianity described in Scripture with a watered-down, self-exalting version. When we examine the qualifications that Jesus gave for true disciples, it becomes clear that only a life of sacrifice and radical obedience will make the cut.
In the end it all comes down to one question: Do you believe that Jesus is worth abandoning everything for?
