The author of Sun Stand Still sends a bold message loud and clear to the reader. Have a bold faith in God and His power to move in your life and the lives of others.

Book Review-Radical by David Platt

Radical by David Platt
copyright 2010
ISBN 978-1-60142-221-7
Radical by David Platt was an easy read right from the start. It provides an engaging first person account of the authors experiences along with the books ultimate purpose in presenting a year long challenge. The challenge is “to read through the entire Word. To sacrifice your money for a specific purpose. To spend your time in another context. To commit your life to a multiplying community”. Much of the book left me feeling that the author was villainizing the American dream/ way of life and bragging about how great he and his church are.  In the final pages a disclaimer and clarification of this issue was explained and left me feeling much more comfortable with how the stories were represented. Overall this book serves as a good reminder to not become so caught up in our own lives that we forget to pursue God and share the gospel with the world. What an awesome challenge to encourage one to action!
