… the thoughts from a life in the Son-shine State


Radical Together

FINALLY!!!
It took me waaay too long to finish this book.
But, alas, it’s complete!

Radical Together: Unleashing the People of God For the Purpose of God, by David Platt, was a good book. I would describe the this book as more of the “how-to,” compared to the first of the series as the “ought-to.”

To be honest, It started well, but then began to drag a bit. This is when I put it down, and didn’t get back to it for a while.

I started to lose interest because I felt as though it was beginning to be redundant, repeating ideas covered in the first book (Radical), and retelling stories that might as well have been the same ones, even if they weren’t.

I hope I didn’t lose you there… but I think I made my point.

Fortunately, I was determined to finish.
This was a review copy provided by WaterBrook Multnomah, after-all, and I wanted to be honest, as well as finally get a new book (as if I don’t already have plenty others to read)…

I am glad that I chose to finish it!

Once I got back into the book, it began to improve.
Platt finishes really strong with some great chapters on the church, prayer, seeker-sensitivity, and God himself.

I would recommend this as a good read to follow-up the first book with, but just a heads-up that there is some repetition there is some repetition. 😉

Onward toward the “radical” call…
