Review: “The Radical Question” By David Platt

Well, it is about time for me to do a review.  A coffee cup was up to review, but as you can see from my previous posts, I am fasting coffee.  So not a good idea.

I received no compensation for this review.  I was given a review copy of the above listed book and asked to read it and submit my honest opinion.  Now that all the legal stuff is over, let’s beginning.

This is a short, but powerful read.  This book is so small you can tuck it into your purse or backpack.  Each of the 55 pages is filled with helpful, Christian living advice that you don’t want to miss.  I love the color, orange, as it was easy to locate in my huge purse whenever I had a moment to read.

“What is Jesus Worth to you?”  That is the question this book asks on the front cover.  It is easy for us American’s to forget how Jesus’ followers would have actually lived, oh sure, we read it once every year as we follow our yearly Bible reading plans.  But, do we really allow it to soak in to our hearts what we are reading?  Do we research it to find out exactly it meant in Jesus’ time, what their lifestyle was like?  Of course not, we have too much to do on our to do lists already why would we want to add to it.  What did the followers of Jesus lifestyle really look like.  According to Jesus’ words they would leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him.  They would abandon everything for the gospel.  They would take up their crosses daily….  But who do you know who lives like that?  Do you?

Powerful words from such a small book.  Really convicts your heart to look inside to see if you do!  This book is an easy read.  Large enough font to make it easy on the eyes.  Powerful enough to keep you turning each page with expectation that I haven’t felt in years.  Important enough to purchase additional copies to give away as gifts. Thank you Multnomah for publishing this book.

David Platt the author of the above book is a senior pastor of a church in Birmingham, Alabama.  He is also the author of: “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream.”  There is also a Radical: The Bible Study available from Life Bible Studies.
