Religion - Christian Life
In this short two-book combo Davil Platt continues to lead the current charge for people to quit "going to church" and start "being the church." The first part, "The Radical Question" is pretty much a review of "Radical." In it Platt looks closely at the words of Jesus when He is describing what it means to follow Him. The radical question is; do we really believe Jesus and are we willing to do what He says if we call ourselves Christians? The second part, the "Radical Idea" is more of the same biblical examination. The focus is on each follower of Jesus being a disciple who makes disciples who makes disciples. The radical idea includes churches and individuals minimizing expenses on structure and programming and focusing more resources on pouring into the lives of others for the Glory of God. This short book is highly motivational. It could be uncomfortable to some readers who have not heard the recent encouragement to give up the "American Dream" for the sake of the gospel. However, any argument a reader may have is against the scriptures and not with Platt himself since everything he presents is grounded in the Word of God. I recommend this book to anyone who claims to be or is thinking about becoming a follower of Jesus, Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for this review.
