This is a mini book that addresses a “radical” topic, to borrow author David Platt’s phrase. If you’ve read “Radical” or “Radical Together”, both by Platt, then this book is nothing new. The Multnomah publishers have produced pamphlets with an excerpt from both of the afore mentioned books, which includes what I call the climax or pivotal point of each book. This handy hardback is those two pamphlets in one.
I like the idea of having something small and short to pick up and read when I need a boost of energy and encouragement for pursuing God’s will, or denying self, which are two things Platt addresses.
The focus of the book is to get our focus on God, not ourselves; on our neighbor, not our American dream. On radical living. It is well written and very convicting.
If you don’t have time to read either of Platt’s former books (though I recommend them both), this is a great one to grab. You’ll get the best of both books in a smaller package, at a smaller price. That’s better than the iPad mini!
I received a free copy of this book from Multnomah publishers in exchange for this review. You can rank my review my going here.
