Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt. The review is going to be published in January (print, I’ve discovered, takes a little longer than online). And yes, I gave it a good review. It’s an important book and needs to be widely discussed.A few weeks back, I was asked to review
While not intended to be this, Radical is a kind of companion book to Mere Churchianty: Finding Your Way Back to Jesus-Shaped Spirituality by Michael Spencer, which I’ve been blogging on every Sunday for the past three months or so; my last post is scheduled for this weekend. The two books share some (not all) common themes, but Radical focuses on a challenge – to consider how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences.
Through some odd circumstances, I’ve ended up with two copies of the book. One I’m keeping for my own library and to reread. The other (the copy I didn’t read) I’m offering as a giveaway. If you’re interested in reading the book, just drop your name or a short comment today (deadline: 11:59 p.m. tonight). A winner will be selected at random (I number each comment and then pull a number out of a hat). Please make sure that I can figure out a way to contact you for an address.
I can vouch for the fact that the book is, well, Radical.
