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.

Professional reviews

"RADICAL isn't the book you would expect from the youngest pastor of a megachurch in the U.S. Telling his own stories and those of others, the author delineates the difference between a Christian version of the American Dream and true biblical faith. Listening to this work is like hearing the frank tone of the pastor's earnest pleas on a Sunday morning. This audiobook compels listeners to take notice of the message to forsake all for the cause of Christ and challenges them to rethink their lives. The message that even our fork and spoon are luxuries can be hard to hear, but listeners will be consoled by Platt's honest admission that he's still struggling with this message, too. R.Z.R.
