I have just read the first chapter of "Radical," and all I can say is WOW! David Platt really brings the message home by asking questions like: "Am I going to believe Jesus?" and "Am I going to obey Jesus?" Many people are concerned with building bigger and bigger churches, yet forget the true purpose of meeting together and worshiping Christ. As David points out on pg. 17, "...the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves." I can't wait to read the rest of the book!
