He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

Radical: Take Back Your Faith from the American Dream

As you can tell by this string of posts, one of my heroes of the faith, David Platt, pastors in my hometown of Birmingham, Al. He has his first book coming out in May of 2010 titled:

Radical: Take Back Your Faith from the American Dream


It will be published by Multnomah Books. Here's the description:

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.

Available for pre-order at Amazon.com
