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?

IS JESUS WORTH THIS TO YOU? 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.

Great book, sub-par audio.
The book was great. I read the physical copy first, then decided to get the audio so I could get refreshed by it while driving to work. I am very disappointed with the audio though. Nearly half the sentences fade out on the last word. I even cranked up the volume to see if it was just quieter than the rest, though it just wasn't there. It is very annoying to listen to because of this. Am I the only one that has this issue?

I'm really glad i bought it. Well done and well worth the buy.
I'm really glad i bought it. I'm reading this book for a book club and found I was forgetting to read until the last minute. Then I had time for two options, read it slow and take notes or read it fast, get the main point of the chapter, and then forget most of the details by the time we discussed the chapter. And there are so many helpful and challenging points to each chapter. With the audio book, I've gotten to listen the chapter multiple times on my drive to work so that I can spend a little bit of time the day before taking notes on what impacted me the most. I've also been able to listen to previous weeks chapter as a reminder. This book packed a lot to think about in each chapter and I feel like the audio book has helped me get more out of the book. I'm not even done with the book yet and I feel like I've gotten my moneys worth

This is a topic I have read up on before in some other books, so a lot of what was said wasn't new to me personally, but I remember when this kind of radical Christianity was new to me and how it helped me come to an understanding of who Jesus really is and what Christianity should look like. If you have found yourself equating Christianity with the American dream, this will be a very helpful starting point and a convincing read to think differently. Consider challenging yourself with this book :)
