What if building the right church depends on using all the wrong people?

Read the first chapter of A Radical Idea.

PRESS RELEASE: Radical Reaches 1 Million in Print

(Colorado Springs, Colo., Jan 2012) – Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, the 2010 breakout debut book by pastor David Platt, has reached a major milestone with 1 million copies in print and continues to appear on best-seller lists: 81 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List (Paperback Advice & Misc.) and 20 months on the CBA Top 50 Best-Seller List, including 17 months in the top 10.

Read the first chapter of Radical Together.

“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.”
