Religion - Christian Life
David Platt published A Radical Idea as a small group resource, or as an introduction to his other books in the Radical series. Regardless of your previous opinions about Platt, be warned that this book is a) small, b) nothing radically new. This book is a gateway to his other books. I greatly appreciated this smaller booklet as a resource for my small group. I was glad to spend a couple of weeks on it, and it provided much good conversation. It provided good insight about the ease of mid-western Christianity. It challenged many to desire to seek God and sacrifice for the glory of God. As I've stated in other reviews of Platt's work, this is a message that we must hear. It is a message for the church, though I'm not sure it is a book that is needed for churches who live in the reality of poverty - though living in poverty changes nothing about the message. Platt calls the Christian to not look for comfort, but to sacrifice all for the glory of the Redeemer of the world.
