NEWS: Matt Carter Featured on “The Exchange” Webcast and Blog

Matt Carter, co-author with Colt McCoy of The Real Win, sat down with Ed Stetzer to talk about his new book, his viral video that has almost two million views, and what he learned about trusting God with everything. Watch the interview, which also features David Platt, author of Radical, here.


Seeking to Follow, Not be Followed

“Jesus Christ—the youngest minichurch pastor in history…

Whenever the crowd got big, he’d say something such as, ‘Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.’ Not exactly the sharpest church-growth tactic. I can almost picture the looks on the disciples’ faces. ‘No, not the drink-my-blood speech! We’ll never get on the list of the fastest growing movements if you keep asking them to eat you.’

By the end of that speech, all the crowds had left, and only twelve men remained. Jesus apparently wasn’t interested in marketing himself to the masses. His invitations to potential followers were clearly more costly than the crowds were ready to accept, and he seemed to be okay with that. He focused instead on the few who believed him when he said radical things. And through their radical obedience to him, he turned the course of history in a new direction.”

Excerpted from Radical by David Platt


Daily Reflection: Are you more concerned about having a great crowd of followers or being a radical follower of Christ?

STAFF RECOMMENDATIONS: Radical

"Every now and then a book comes along that changes how you see the world and your place in it. For me, Radical is one of those rare books. David Platt takes a look at North American Christianity and shows how far we’ve gotten from real gospel living. Then he lays out what happens when Christians actually take Jesus at his word. I think you’ll be surprised—maybe even shocked—by what you read. But David’s message is so simple and clear, so directly drawn from the words of Jesus that the minute you read it, you’ll know it’s true."
David Kopp Senior Editor WaterBrook Multnomah

 In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple—then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as  a “successful” suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.
