Brief Book Review: Radical


Radical, by David Platt, is a charge to boldly live out the Great Commission. Platt says the Great Commission is not an option or a suggestion, but it is a command for everyone. He says, “Jesus has not merely called us to go to all nations; he has created us and commanded us to go to all nations.” Not only that, but when we pursue the Great Commission, we will suffer for it. “The danger in our lives will always increase in proportion to the depth of our relationship with Christ”, Platt says. He contends that we are not commanded to make disciples for ourselves, but for God’s glory. “We are not the center of his universe”, Platt says. “God is at the center of his universe, and everything he does ultimately revolves around him.” The question posed by the author is, “Are you ready to live for this dream?”
