Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

$10.18

Can you put a price on Jesus? What is he worth to you? Too often, American Christians forget what Jesus said about how his followers would live and what their new lifestyle would look like. They were called to leave everything behind – money, security, convenience even family. They abandoned everything for the sake of the gospel and to take up their cross every day. Does anyone live like that today? 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. He then encourages 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 and invites you on a one-year discipleship journey that will transform your life.
