Radical Together promises to do more of the same. At the same time, Platt seems to have taken heed to some of the concerned criticism and clarified his position taken in Radical. This second book revolves around what he calls foundational ideas for churches unleashing people into the world with the gospel:
- One of the worst enemies of Christians can be good things in the church.
- The gospel that saves us from work saves us to work.
- The Word does the work.
- Building the right church depends on using all the wrong people.
- We are living—and longing—for the end of the world.
- We are selfless followers of a self-centered God.
In many ways, Radical Together is the proper partner to Radical, bringing balance and clarification where needed. While at the heart of the book still lies a near-impossible challenge, I kind of think that's the idea.
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
Recommended for: Fans of Radical, those tired of American consumerism
