Product Description

What did you leave behind when you chose to follow Christ? For some, the answers are obvious. If you struggled with habitual sins or addictions like alcoholism, drugs, pornography, violence, or promiscuity, the choice to follow Christ often marks a distinct ending of your old life and beginning of a new one. Or, perhaps you grew up in a culture unfriendly to Christianity, where your conversion would mean instant alienation from friends and family, maybe even a threat to your life. In these situations, the cost of following Christ seems clear.
But what if you didn't have a dramatic life-changing encounter with Christ? What if you've always grown up in the church and been immersed in Christian culture your whole life? What does it mean for you to count the cost and follow Him?
In Radical:Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, David Platt sought to expose the ideas in American Christianity that are antithetical to the gospel, to show what we must let go of in true discipleship. In Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live., Platt seeks to show whom we must take hold of. In order to live as authentic disciples, Platt believes we need an authentic encounter with the person of Jesus Christ, who He is, what that means, and to count the cost of truly following Him.
Look afresh at the invitation Jesus offers, and discover perhaps for the first time, the joy and purpose that comes from abandoning your life to His.

Publisher's Description

What did Jesus really mean when he said, “Follow Me”?



In this new book, David Platt, author of the New York Times bestselling book, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, contends that multitudes of people around the world culturally think they are Christians yet biblically are not followers of Christ.



Scores of men, women, and children have been told that becoming a follower of Jesus simply involves believing certain truths or saying certain words. As a result, churches today are filled with people who believe they are Christians . . . but aren’t. We want to be disciples as long as doing so does not intrude on our lifestyles, our preferences, our comforts, and even our religion.



Revealing a biblical picture of what it means to truly be a Christian, Follow Me explores the gravity of what we must forsake in this world, as well as the indescribable joy and deep satisfaction to be found when we live for Christ.



The call to follow Jesus is not simply an invitation to pray a prayer; it’s a summons to lose your life—and to find new life in him. This book will show you what such life actually looks like.
