Radical~ Because We Are Called to Love Our Enemies~



 Looking for a good, rock your world, shake up your faith, change your views, renew your mind, draw you in, dig deeper, cry for more, surrender it all, ask for more, work toward change type of book this summer? 
RADICAL is for you!
I started this book weeks ago and I'm still reading it! 
I have to take it in small doses, ponder it, chew on it, put it down
and think about it! Do some of us really
have the wrong view of church?
Wrong goal, motivation, method? YES!! Including me! 
I am only on Chapter 4 but I highly
  recommend it!
"If we were left to ourselves with the task of taking the gospel to the world, we would immediately begin planning innovative strategies and plotting elaborate schemes. We would organize conventions, develop programs, and create foundations… But Jesus is so different from us. With the task of taking the gospel to the world, he wandered through the streets and byways…All He wanted was a few men who would think as He did, love as He did, see as He did, teach as He did and serve as He did. All He needed was to revolutionize the hearts of a few, and they would impact the world."
David Platt (Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream)
