The Radical Question, another book review

Jesus said: "Sell all that you have, give it to the poor and follow me". In this book "The Radical Question: what is Jesus worth to you" the author compares Jesus' teachings with our comfortable lifestyle, all part of the American dream.

Doctor David Platt, Pastor of The Church at Brook Hills, a four-thousand-member congregation in Birmingham, Alabama goes on to say most of us sit in air conditioned church buildings, tithing, doing charity work and believing ourselves to be Christians.

He challenges us to really look at ourselves and see the World as it really is, where our brothers and sisters experience hunger and poverty, diseases and exploitation along with persecution because of their faith.

In asking us to decide if Jesus created us for a greater purpose, we are reminded we have the choice to follow in Jesus' footsteps, wherever, however and whenever he ask us.

This book will ask you to trust Jesus is worthy of radical devotion, to stop living as though we need more possessions and greater pleasures. Let us believe that we can make a difference and start living as if this World has nothing for us because Christ is truly everything to us! It is our turn to carry his cross...

This is not a large book by any means, but it is packed with truths and I guarantee it will challenge the comfortable way you live. To sacrifice everything and follow HIM...Truly compelling and not for everyone!

I give this book 4 Stars!
