I have fallen out of the habit of reading very much in the Christian book market outside of a fairly narrow slice of topics related to work and other projects. Well, one project in particular. But since that project is complete, I sense a need to re-familiarize myself with what’s going on in the wider book world.
One book that has gotten a lot of attention lately is Radical, written by David Platt. I’m intrigued by some commentary on it and on the whole notion of what it means to live a radical Christian life, along with some cautions about the way that notion is often presented to us as Christians.
So tell me about the book, Radical.
Update (7/25): Commenter Andrew has a review up of David Platt’s follow-up book, Radical Together. He’s in youth ministry in the Northwest, so you youth ministry majors will find it interesting. It’s here, and worth checking out.
