New York Times bestseller
What is Jesus worth to you?
It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...
But who do you know who lives like that? Do you?
In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment -- a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.

When we were kids we heard this kind of talk about going and giving and sacrifcing. I don’t know when or how all that has gone away and we strive to be comfortable Christians. I am glad for the reminder of Christ’s commands to take up our cross and follow Him.
Mind changing phenomenal must-read
When I read this book, it was given to me by a teacher. This book changed my thinking about a lot of things but most importantly making disciples of Christ and the call of all to the mission field. If I could give any book to someone looking to grow in their walk with God and looking to delve into His love and mercy, I would give them Radical. The last chapter gives such a convicting but hard to fulfill challenge. I'm trying to complete it and I encourage you to do the same!
Excellent book. Very challenging! Wish every pastor would read it.
