Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the front lines.

Everywhere we turn, battle lines are being drawn—traditional marriage vs. gay marriage, pro-life vs. pro-choice, personal freedom vs. governmental protection. Seemingly overnight, culture has shifted to the point where right and wrong are no longer measured by universal truth but by popular opinion. And as difficult conversations about homosexuality, abortion, and religious liberty continue to inject themselves into our workplaces, our churches, our schools, and our homes, Christians everywhere are asking the same question: How are we supposed to respond to all this?

In Counter Culture, New York Times best-selling author David Platt shows Christians how to actively take a stand on such issues as poverty, sex trafficking, marriage, abortion, racism, and religious liberty—and challenges us to become passionate, unwavering voices for Christ. Drawing on compelling personal accounts from around the world, Platt presents an unapologetic yet winsome call for Christians to faithfully follow Christ into the cultural battlefield in ways that will prove both costly and rewarding.

The lines have been drawn. The moment has come for Christians to rise up and deliver a gospel message that's more radical than even the most controversial issues of our day.

Incredible how-to on standing up for your faith today

This book gives a very practical approach to standing up for your faith amidst today's cultural conflicts that turn even many Christians from Christ. Each topic is set up as a description of the pastor's beliefs on the topic, followed by a practical application of how you can live it out in your own life, as well as specific bullets to pray on that topic. Highly recommend.

Very challenging!

It’s a bold call to get the church outside of its 4 walls to go out and present Gospel to everyone! As a pastor I’m reading this again!

Powerfully thought provoking

This book should make each reader ask God where they can best be used… and then obey the call. Lord help me to desire and then have the boldness to follow after the things of your heart.

Convicting and relevant for Now! Thank you

My soul was touched by the foundational information to speak to my own reservations and those of our current culture - whether to family and friends or new friends out in the world. Praise be Jesus - Help me to follow you closer and in Your Will🙏

CounterCulture

I enjoyed the whole book. It is recommended to all who want to go deeper, in serving God, to a new level of intimacy with God. It is an excellent book, with some hard biblical sayings. We have two choices be of the world or about the business of serving God. We truly can not have two Masters.

A must read!

Another great book! Anyone who thinks they are Christian needs to read this book! I am listening to it for the second time, and this time I bought the physical book to make better notes.

Challenging

It is easy to settle in for so much less than God intended for our lives. This book will challenge the way you think about a lot of issues in the world that the church is silent on. Todd Busteed did an excellent job voicing the book.

Don’t read this book...

It will turn your world upside down the way Radical does, but almost on a more personal level. Challenging, convicting, courageous. A simple, yet difficult message to share and hear.

Loved it!

Geat book! It definitely challenged me in my faith and how I am living it out in the world! Platt touches on some important topics that we as Christians like to avoid so that we and others don't feel uncomfortable. But we are called to do just that--to get out of our comfort zones and truly live like Christ.

Convicting Truths

A precise, accurate and confronting look at the realities of our world in opposition to the Christian faith. Very challenging read which demands a heartfelt response to act.
