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 crowds160;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.
David Platt offers a contrarian view to today's understanding of Jesus and his message to the world. Platt challenges today's believers to first reread--and then reflect on--the message in the gospels. In his view, much of Christianity today seems to prop up our comfortable lives; the true gospels are difficult, challenging, and yet ultimately rewarding, as they ask us to engage with the world.Platt offers intense readings and precise analysis of the gospels.
