Book Review The Radical Question A Radical Idea

About the book

The radical question offers a compelling introduction to Radical's challenge to the contemporary church. In this concise message, Platt asks, "What is Jesus worth to you?" The he explores what a commitment to Jesus would actually look like in action.

A Radical Idea extracts key passages from Radical together the follow up to radical to show readers that church is not built on places performances programs or professionals but on people. Platt argues that those of us in the pews are meant to be active and intentional in spreading the good news of the gospel because when ordinary believers mobilize in everyday ministry, communities and church families change dramatically.

"The goal of the church is never for one person to be equipped and empowered to lead as many people as possible to Christ. The goal is always for all of God's people to be equipped and empowered to lead as many people as possible to Christ"
