Radical Together

"Unleasing the People of God for the Purpose of God."  That's the sub-title for David Platt's powerful little book, Radical Together.

This is the follow up volume to his best-seller, Radical, and I believe it's even better -- though that seems impossible.

Reading Platt reminds me of paying Battleship with my kids, when they're on a winning streak.  Every salvo is a direct hit.

For instance, consider this powerful point:  "One of the worst enemies of Christians can be good things in the church."

Operating from the call to radical discipleship issued in his first book, Platt describes what this commitment looks like in a congregation that has bought into the compelling vision.

I highly recommend it to church leadership teams and boards who want to get serious about the Great Commission.

It sounds like a book based on the same premise as Jerry Cook's Love, Acceptance and Forgiveness. I will have to get a copy. I went to Multnomah for a semester before transferring to LIFE. The quote you shared is so right! Our purpose is not to get people to attend, but to get the church into the world with the life changing message of Jesus!
