Publisher's Summary

In Radical, David Platt’s plea for Christians to take back their faith from the American Dream resonated with readers everywhere, and the book quickly became a New York Times best seller. Now in Radical Together, the author broadens his call, challenging us to unite around a gospel-centered vision.

How, he asks, might such a vision reshape our priorities as the body of Christ? How might well-intentioned Christians actually prevent God’s people from accomplishing God’s purpose? And, how can we best unleash the people of God in the church to carry out the purpose of God in the world?

Writing to everyone who desires to make an impact for God’s glory—whether you are an involved member, a leader, or a pastor—Dr. Platt shares six foundational ideas that fuel radical obedience among Christians in the church. With compelling Bible teaching and inspiring stories from around the world, he will help you apply the revolutionary claims and commands of Christ to your community of faith in fresh, practical ways.

Challenging book that all Christians should read.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Radical Idea to be better than the print version?

No, but as good.

What other book might you compare A Radical Idea to and why?

Blue Like Jazz. Christians, and I am one, often only focus on sharing Jesus with others. While this is the essential work, it is not the only work that they have been called to do. Both books shed light on how Christians should be impacting the world here and now.

Which scene was your favorite?

This is not a novel.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The book helped me see some areas of my life I needed to rethink.

Any additional comments?

Good fast listen.

Teaching 'Church Leadership' the True Meaning of 'Church'

The book, Radical, was recommended to me as I began to discuss plans for a new congregation. In 'A Radical Idea', Dr. David Platt is right on in his interpretation of what the Church should look like and how it should be run. In fact, I will be reaching out to him for counsel. This is an awesome book to read for anyone involved in ministry, be it in a formal ministry position or simply ministering in the workplace or community.
