Take a transforming journey in authentic discipleship. As the pastor of a large and wealthy congregation, David Platt began to see a discrepancy between the reality of his Church and the way Jesus said His followers lived. In Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, Platt examines how American Christianity has manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences and challenges readers to rediscover the path.

Life-altering Book| Posted November 11, 2011
This book has to be one of the biggest life-altering books I've had the pleasure of experiencing (bought it on audiobook). Dr. Platt's book totally wrecked my perception of what it is to be a Christian. We get so comfortable in what we do that sometimes we forget why we do it. This book helped me to realize that knowing Jesus is not enough, but I also need to be doing what Jesus called us all to do.
This is a must-read for all Christians, no matter your denomination. If you can read this book and be content in your spiritual purpose, then you are exactly where you need to be. If not, learn to lean on the Holy Spirit and get out of your comfortable, insincere Christian lifestyle and be led to what God has in your life no matter where He will take you.
