Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Take the next step. From radical followers of Christ to radical communities of faith.

 

In Radical, David Platt’s plea for Christians to take back their faith from the American Dream resonated with readers everywhere, and the book quickly became a New York Times bestseller. Now in Radical Together, the author broadens his call, challenging us to unite around a gospel-centered vision.

 

How, he asks, might such a vision reshape our priorities as the body of Christ? How might well-intentioned Christians actually prevent God’s people from accomplishing God’s purpose? And, how can we best unleash the people of God in the church to carry out the purpose of God in the world?

 

Writing to everyone who desires to make an impact for God’s glory—whether you are an involved member, a leader, or a pastor—Dr. Platt shares six foundational ideas that fuel radical obedience among Christians in the church. With compelling Bible teaching and inspiring stories from around the world, he will help you apply the revolutionary claims and commands of Christ to your community of faith in fresh, practical ways.

Review:

"Addressing evangelical Christian leaders and members, mega-church pastor and author Platt (Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream) espouses six 'essential ideas' to accomplish the title goal. For example, in 'The Tyranny of the Good,' Platt urges individuals and congregations to prayerfully review budgets, questioning everything--family homes and dreams, church programs, building projects,--with a willingness to sacrifice all 'to accomplish the Great Commission,' namely, to evangelize. Providing examples of individuals and churches who faithfully engage in this process, he describes his own congregation's embrace of community orphans needing foster care and adoption, as well as the work done by families undertaking missions in impoverished countries. Platt challenges affluent Christians to rethink devoting vast resources to providing entertaining experiences and lattes for seekers. With urgency, he calls leaders to equip lay Christians to spread the gospel to the six thousand 'people groups' who risk 'everlasting suffering in hell' because they have not heard about Jesus. While mainline and other non-evangelical Christians may dispute some of Platt's assumptions, his call for faithful allocation of resources and an empowered laity will resonate across the Christian spectrum.
