Title: Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

<p><b>WHAT IS&nbsp;JESUS WORTH&nbsp;TO YOU?</b><i><br> </i><br> It's easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...</p> <p>BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?</p> <p>In <i>Radical</i>, David Platt challenges&nbsp;you to consider with an open heart how we have&nbsp;manipulated the&nbsp;gospel to fit our cultural&nbsp;preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple—then invites you to <i>believe</i> and <i>obey</i> what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.</p> <p>Finally, he urges you to join in The Radical Experiment — a one-year journey in authentic discipleship that will transform how you live in a&nbsp;world that desperately needs the Good News Jesus came to bring.</p>

Title: Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God

<p><b>Take the next step. From radical followers of Christ&nbsp;to radical communities of faith.</b><br> &nbsp;<br> In <i>Radical,</i> 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 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller. Now in <i>Radical Together,</i> the author broadens his call, challenging us to unite around a gospel-centered vision.<br> &nbsp;<br> How, he asks, might such a vision reshape our priorities as the body of Christ? How might well-intentioned Christians actually <i>prevent</i> 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?<br> <i>&nbsp;</i><br> 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.</p>

Title: Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live.

<p>David Platt, author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestselling book <i>Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream,</i> wants to know<i>:</i> “What did Jesus <b>really</b> mean when He said, ‘Follow me’?”</p> <p>For many Christians, following Jesus is seen as best done from a distance. We want to be disciples as long as doing so does not intrude on our lifestyles, our preferences, our comforts, and even our religion. But what if we really took the time to look Jesus in the eye and see who He truly is? What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what He is truly saying?</p> <p>Jesus’ invitation to follow Him was—and still is—an invitation into a relationship marked by self-denial, personal intimacy, single-minded ambition, and ultimate joy. When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow Him, everything changes, for He is worthy of all our trust and all our affections. Building on the lessons in <i>Radical</i>, this book will motivate all of us to experience the grand purpose for which we have been created: to exalt the glory of God by spreading the gospel of Christ—to make disciples who are making disciples.</p>
