Radical Together

Wednesday July 6,2011- I just finished reading David Platt's book Radical Together. Here's my review of it. I have officially been challenged...
This was a very interesting read for me. I haven't read Platt's book "Radical", but I thought I'd read this one to get the jist of the Radical movement. Boy was I ever taken aback by this one. This book really is a litmus test for true biblical Christianity. Church usually makes one feel better about themselves but the chapter that talks about the western church mentality being nothing more than a christian version of the American dream really got me to thinking. I have always considered myself a rather humble guy, but I walked away from this book with genuine conviction. I am guilty!I repent! David Platt you have given me a revelation about the great commission and about my part in the church and a conviction to do something. Of course I'm not going to sell all I have and move to a third world country because of this book, but I am taking a serious look at my dreams, resources, and giftings and how those can be better used for the glory of God. This is a book that everyone that calls themselves a Christian should read. Ouch. And at the same time, Ahhh. David Platt is truly a prophet to this generation. An excellent book.
