You may think you are a Christian—but are you sure? Jesus’ call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life and find new life and ultimate joy in him. In David Platt’s book, Follow Me: A Call To Die. A Call to Live he asks the question, “What did Jesus really mean when he said, ‘Follow Me’?” What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what he is saying? When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow him, everything changes, for he is worthy of all our trust and affections.

What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me? builds on the message of Follow Me to motivate readers to experience our grand purpose: to exalt the glory of God by spreading Christ’s gospel—to make disciples who are making disciples. This booklet is a great resource to share with others to discuss crucial faith questions in a personal and grace-filled manner and engage others to be disciple-makers in obedience to Jesus. Ideal for small-groups or personal and mass evangelism.

A True Follower of Christ?
What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me? by David Platt is another short but very challenging book about truly fulfilling the Great Commission and following Christ with everything. The book is very short but extremely powerful and well worth reading multiple times to absorb everything that is being expanded.

This is the second Platt book that I have reviewed and I must say that he has an amazing ability at getting across his challenging points in a short space of time, which is great for the large amount of people these days who are time poor. He really gets to the core of what Jesus meant by following Him and how it applies to us today.

The narration was quite good, as it was read at a good pace and his voice was not at all annoying.

This book would be a great outreach tool to reach people for Christ but a very challenging book for Christians who are just resting in their salvation and not truly following Christ and reaching out to others.

Fine booklet
David Platt has done an excellent job of spelling out the gospel in a new booklet entitled What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me. This booklet is short, direct, and clear. Platt opens the reader’s eyes to the content of the gospel as well as its ramifications. He talks about more than forgiveness. He also talks about repentance, discipleship, and evangelism.

This booklet is more than a tract, but less than a book. It can be read quickly. It is inexpensive enough to be given away. It is a helpful resource that any believer who wants to share his or her faith could benefit from having available.

I received a free audio copy of this booklet from ChristianAudio.com as part of their reviewers program. This booklet was well-read and easy-to-listen-to.

Short and challenging
What Did Jesus Really Mean When He Said Follow Me? by David Platt is a very short book—really a booklet—with a lengthy title. The audiobook version lands at about 45 minutes, which is shorter than some of the sermons I’ve heard from Platt. However, there is a lot of theological depth and practical application packed into a small package.

Some have called this book an evangelism tool. I think it may occupy its own genre as a “re-evangelism tool.” My understanding is it re-iterates many of the concepts put forward in the longer Platt book, Follow Me. That book and this one seem to be addressing those who consider themselves Christians because they have “prayed a prayer” or been born into a Christian family, yet they are not defined by transformed desires and whole-hearted devotion to Christ.

This is a book about true discipleship flowing from a deep understanding of the redemptive work of Christ. It serves a powerful purpose as a way to check your Christian “pulse.” Are you dying to self more each day as Christ consumes more and more of your spiritual vision? I know I came away challenged.

This would be a good book to buy a few copies of (audiobook or print) and hand out to a small group to read and discuss. Lloyd James does a good job narrating, and the audio is short enough that it could fit on one CD for listening to in the car.

Definitely worth the read, and highly recommended.
