    Radical for the Wrong Reasons Taking Back your Faith from the American Dream This is the confessed purpose of David Platt s new book, Radical In it, he attempts to save American Christians from their cultural sins, showing that one cannot serve both the American Dream and Jesus Christ A decision must be made it is either radical obedience to Christ or self centered, lukewarm mediocrity Summary His thesis is based upon his interpretation of the great commission in Matthew 28 and a select f Radical for the Wrong Reasons Taking Back your Faith from the American Dream This is the confessed purpose of David Platt s new book, Radical In it, he attempts to save American Christians from their cultural sins, showing that one cannot serve both the American Dream...

    I really don t like writing this kind of review, but I don t think I ll be able to get this out of my head until I do, so here it goes.Warning I m going to be mean Proceed at your own risk.First, I appreciate the effort Platt is going to in order to shake American Christianity out of it s stupor He says going to a mega church on Sunday morning and giving a few dollars to international missions is an insufficient expression of the gospel Amen, no argument from me However, Platt then spends t I really don t like writing this kind of review, but I don t think I ll be able to get this out of my head until I do, so here it goes.Warning I m going to be mean Proc...

    Full review review I think this is one of those books that lots of people will read and many people will not do anything about That is unfortunate, this is a call to live a life like what Christ has called us to There are five specific suggestions that are in the last chapter and most people will not do one or two let alone all five.I say this fully aware that I might be in the same boat I may not really do what I should be doing either But rea Full review review I think this is one of those books that lots of people will read and many people will not do anything about That is unfortunate, this is a call to live a life like what Christ has called us to There are five specific suggestions that are in the last chapter and most people will not do one or two let alone all five.I say this fully aware that I might be in the same boat I may not really do what I should be doing either But reading books like th...

    It is ironic to call a book entitled Radical imbalanced by the nature of the case, such is Platt s goal A gifted preacher, and a personable writer, Platt s call is good, but his technique is cruel, and his application over generalized Some Christians are called to radical lives like he describes but others are called to be radical in a different way Platt misses the radical nature of a life of boring Christian faithfulness, and sees no middle ground between the ...

    I have really struggled with how I felt about this book At first I felt like, I am SOOO sorry that I am a middle class American Christian, which automatically makes me somehow less of a Christian than someone in the Chinese or Indian underground church movements Read sarcasm That is probably a wrong response, but I ve been feeling like that type of message has been coming from a lot of angles Through reading the book I felt like Platt was very repetitive he could have written a booklet, I have really struggled with how I felt about this book At first I felt like, I am SOOO sorry that I am a middle class American Christian, which automatically makes me somehow less of a Christian than someone in the Chinese or Indian underground church movements Read sarcasm That is probably a wrong response, but I ve been feeling like that type of message has been coming from a lot of angles Through reading the book I felt like Platt was very repetitive he could have written a booklet, honestly, and gotten the same message ac...

    First, why is it that many people out there have a hard time with obedience And why is it that certain ministers and writers have a hard time explaining obedience without dipping into either legalism or radicalism I understand what it s like to rebel and not wish to obey I m human so this is an innate problem with all of us But I always try to keep my heart open to what the Father has to say in my life, even if I don t like it And I m always trying to keep an open heart with teaching that I First, why is it that many people out there have a hard time with obedience And why is it that certain ministers and writers have a hard time explaining obedience without dipping into either legalism or radicalism I understand what it s like to rebel and not wish to obey I m human so this is an innate problem with all of us But I always try to keep my heart open to what the Father has to say in my life, even if I don t like it And I m always trying to keep an open heart with teaching that I m not used to I knew this book was going to be a little rough Rough I can handle, provided that it s biblical and inspired by the Holy Spirit But I didn t realize just how bad it was going to be Platt brings up some interesting points here and there, and overall, I can t say that what he s saying is wrong, per se, because what he majors on in the book is devotion to God s commands, world ev...

    So I read this book after reading it s sequel, Radical Together As I expected, this is the better book of the two Unfortunately the two books are too similar for me to enjoy this book as much as I may have otherwise Here are some of my general thoughts on this bookreflections than a book review 1 David Platt manages to write in a humble, and engaging way He tells stories about what his church is doing and the steps that they are taking to follow Jesus and to accomplish his mission So I read this book after reading it s sequel, Radical Together As I expected, this is the better book of the two Unfortunately the two books are too similar for me to enjoy this book as much as I may have otherwise Here are some of my general thoughts on this bookreflections than a book review 1 David Platt manages to write in a humble, and engaging way He tells stories about what his church is doing and the steps that they are taking to follow Jesus and to accomplish his mission in the world It is true that this not the best written book in the world, but it is hard to dislike Platt s genuineness and eagerness to be faithful to the gospel in the mega church context he found himself in.2 The stuff that Platt is pushing people towards is good stuff This book ends with a challenge to for one year to pray for the entire world, read the entire Bible, sacrifice money for a specific purpose, spend time in another context, and to commit one s life to a multiplying community Having taken up such ch...

    I wanted to read this book a few years ago and I decided to read it now because of some criticism that was leveled against the radical movement and this book in particular One of the things I appreciated about the criticism was one questions raised Would people who really loved this book agree with Paul s words, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands 1 Thess 4 11 That is a fair question However, I thought this book was pretty balanced I wanted to read this book a few years ago and I decided to read it now because of some criticism that was leveled against the radical movement and this book in particular One of the things I appreciated about the criticism was one questions raised Would people who really loved this book agree with Paul s words, and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands 1 Thess 4 11 That is a fair question However, I thought this book was pretty balanced And, in the end, it called for an application that was mildly radical What I apprecia...
