Can't Judge a book by its Cover?
I guess i was a little too hard on David Platt's new book "Radical" (see post below) I guess you cannot always judge a book by its cover! It was a pretty good read, even though it was one of the most self-indulging books i have read in a long time. A lot of illustrations started with, "When i was in the Sudan..." (or Asia, or Indonesia, or on the moon). But his overall critique of the American Dream and Christian Faith was right on. His "Radical" One Year Challenge was pretty good: 1. Pray for the World, 2. Read the Bible, 3. Sacrifice my money for a specific purpose, 4. Spend time in another context, and 5. commit my life to a multiplying community.
