I recently read David Platt's book Radical: Taking Back Your Faith From The American Dream and I would highly recommend it. Through reading this book, my eyes have been opened as to how I love this world more than Christ. This book is very challenging and while it is a short book, it isn't something you can read in one sitting because it is so convicting! As a Christian, I am called to take up my cross and follow after Christ. David Platt fleshes out in real, hard hitting ways what that means and how it is contrary to the American dream.
If you are looking for a great review of this book, visit the Search & See blog. Pastor Wil Owens is much smarter than me and does a much better review than I could ever do! After you read his review, go to Lifeway or Amazon and purchase Radical!
