In this week’s Free Lance-Star religion column, I share some of what I have learned from an amazing book by David Platt called Follow Me. You may recognize David as the author of the best-selling book Radical. David has been given a voice and a message to wake Christians up from the complacency that is cultural Christianity.
In Follow Me, David shares what it really means to be a disciple of Christ. He calls into question many of the traditions and phrases of the current evangelical church. Not based on his own opinion, he uses Scripture throughout to support his arguments and to show the reader what the Bible really says about what it means to follow Jesus Christ.
Both of David’s books will challenge you and maybe even make you feel uncomfortable. But those feelings are good, because they lead to change and growth. They have definitely done so for me.
Today I am giving away one free copy of Follow Me. Just enter in the box below and I will announce the winner on my blog next Saturday. Enter your address in the subscription box in the upper right-hand corner to make sure you don’t miss the announcement.
