David Platt’s Radical is a shock of a bestseller: a book that challenges people to follow the Jesus of the gospels—the one who called people to leave their homes, abandon their jobs, risk their lives, and even give up their families for him. Platt asks us to examine what happens when we get serious about the gospel and join the radical journey of the disciples of Jesus.
Of course, it all starts with the words of Jesus, so we asked Platt to point us to some of the most radical challenges found in the gospels.
