Book Review: A Radical Idea/A Radical Question (Platt)

This small book certainly packs a punch. With “two books it one” it serves as a great introduction to David Platt’s Bestselling books Radical and Radical Together. The content itself is excerpted from (or provides a primer for) his two books listed above, and it’s a helpful book to distribute to friends who may be interested in reading them but want to see what it’s all about.

I wouldn’t say many people will stop at this book alone and not continue on to the fuller works. If you’ve read anything of David Platt’s you know what I’m talking about, and if you have not read his books I would strongly recommend you do so immediately.

With a fresh perspective of what it means to live as a committed christian and risk your life and your comfort for the sake of the gospel, and established through faithful scripture interpretation, David Platt has the ability to stir my soul with excitement and anticipation like few writers can, and I would say there is no way you can go wrong with reading (and responding!) to his works.

Take a bit of time out of your day if you’re unsure, read these primers, and decide whether you feel like this content is for you; I’d be surprised if you decide it is not.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes by the Multnomah Publishing. I was not required to post a positive review and the views expressed in this review are my own.
