If you read only one book this year, read Radical.
I believe it is that good.
If I were as gifted as David Platt, I would try to write this book.
David Platt is a young, amazingly gifted, passionate, theologically solid pastor of Brook Hills church in Birmingham, Alabama.
I first discovered David Platt when I read another blog where the author had said he just watched him give the most powerful message ever delivered at a Southern Baptist Convention. Naturally, since I respected this blogger (Justin Taylor), I was curious to see what kind of message this 34 year old with a Phd gave… It is the best message I’ve ever heard preached.
You too can watch that message here: http://vimeo.com/5514321
I am plotting now to develop a way to get every person who comes to The Harbor (www.okiharbor.com) a copy of this book… God has also use the book to stir my passions and help me think through the next season of ministry at The Harbor.
I don’t want to say too much here, because I plan on saying a lot more in the days and months to come…
Go read the book!
