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 culture preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being a 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.
"In his compelling new book, Radical, David Platt delivers a powerful picture of the Church in America today that, on key points, stands in sharp contrast to what the Bible shows us about the person and purpose of Jesus Christ. David challenges Christians to wake up, trade in false values rooted in the American dream, and embrace the notion that each of us is blessed by God for a global purpose—to make Christís glory known to all the nations! This is a must-read for every Believer!"

"Radical will cause you to bounce on a spectrum between two words: ouch and amen. Tough truths do that. They challenge us to examine our lives and then choose the lasting over the temporary. Read Radical if youíre ready to live differently."
