Responses to Radical

"In his compelling new book, Radical, David Platt delivers a powerful picture of the church in America today that, on key points, stands in sharp contrast to what the Bible shows us about the person and purpose of Jesus Christ. David challenges Christians to wake up, trade in false values rooted in the American dream, and embrace the notion that each of us is blessed by God for a global purpose--to make Christ's glory known to all the nations! This is a must-read for every believer!"
--Wess Stafford, president and CEO, Compassion Intl.

"We have moved into a generation of young leaders who have a passion to surrender the American dream if necessary in order to embrace fully, compassionately, and wholeheartedly a bigger dream--the Great Commission. I have never been challenged by an author more than I have by David Platt. Read Radical, be blessed, and be changed."
--Johnny Hunt, president, Southern Baptist Convention, and pastor, First Baptist Church of Woodstock

"Radical will cause you to bounce on a spectrum between two words: ouch and amen. Tough truths do that. They challenge us to examine our lives and then choose the lasting over the temporary. Read Radical if you're ready to live differently."
--Gregg Matte, senior pastor, First Baptist Church of Houston

"David Platt's book will leave anyone who sincerely engages with his challenge dissatisfied--and faced with a decision: What will authentic faith look like in my life? This book has the potential to revitalize churches today to practice a radical, biblical lifestyle that can transform society and reach a lost world."
--Jerry Rankin, president, International Mission Board, Southern Baptist Convention

"The church of the Lord Jesus has been seduced by a skilled seductress: the American dream. David Platt exposes this enemy of authentic Christianity and provides a way of escape through a radical faith that leads to a radical obedience. I am not the same after reading it. I trust that will also be true for you."
--Daniel L. Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

"It is almost impossible to keep the idols of our own culture from influencing us, whether we want it to happen or not. This is certainly true when it comes to the so-called American dream. We need our eyes opened! We need to be called out! In this challenging and thoughtful book, David Platt shows us the way to live for Someone and something bigger."
--Darrin Patrick, founding pastor, The Journey, St. Louis

"Sometimes people will commend a book by saying, 'You won't want to put it down.' I can't say that about this book. You'll want to put it down, many times. If you're like me, as you read David Platt's Radical, you'll find yourself uncomfortably targeted by the Holy Spirit. You'll see just how acclimated you are to the American dream. But you'll find here another Way, one you know to be true, because you've heard it before in the words of the Lord Jesus, perhaps most forcefully in the simple call 'Follow me.'"
--Russell D. Moore, dean, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Through solid examination of the Scriptures and compelling testimonies from believers enduring persecution, my friend David Platt pulls back the curtain on subtle dangers weakening the church in our Western culture. Radical is the urgent call we need to care more about the spiritually lost and physically impoverished people of the world."
--Ed Stetzer, president, LifeWay Research
