I was recently blessed with two gift certificates to Amazon.com for my birthday. Greatest gifts ever. I’ve spent the last few days contemplating what I might buy with my sudden influx of “book money.” While I’m still struggling to decide on a few things (ask my wife how bad I am at picking out gifts), I have already settled on two books in particular: David Platt’s Radical and Radical Together. I’ve listened to a couple of Platt’s sermons and read an excerpt from Radical, and on each occasion was impressed and convicted.
But before I jump in, I thought it might be nice to get some perspectives from people who have already read one of his books. If you’ve read Radical or Radical Together, what were your thoughts? Were you convicted, angered, dismayed, or encouraged? Would you recommend his books? Have you changed anything about your life since reading his books?
Here’s a trailer for the books:
