Radical Book - A Radical Message

Something is stirring in the Christian community. There is a grassroots movement of influential American church leaders who are bringing attention to the fact that something is wrong in the church today. Specifically, that it doesn't make sense to be wealthy Christians in a world where people are dying without basic necessities like food, clean water and basic healthcare.

Francis Chan's book Crazy Love touches on this. So does The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns.

But the newest young leader to confront with this reality is Dr. David Platt. He is the pastor of the Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL. His new book, aptly titled Radical is making waves all across the church.

I just ordered my copy. I confess that I'm afraid to read it. Here's a video from Platt on the core of the book's message.
