Description

2014 “Christian Retailing’s Best” award finalist!
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.

  • Even better than 'Radical'

    All the little issues I had with Radical, such as a bit too much focus on overseas missions, are handed very well in this book. Radical was very convicting and inspiring and I would recommend it wholeheartedly; however, if I had to give someone just one book on what being an overall follower of Jesus Christ it would be this one.
  • Don't just read it - DO IT!

    I wanted to title this "a great read" but David Platt is not an author who writes so you will read his books - he writes so you will change your life! Read it and Follow "The Main" subject! You will never look back.

    I loved this book. At times I am complacent in my walk with Christ, however there is no way to read this book and feel great about a complacent walk with Christ. I found it very challenging. Thank you for spurring me on!

    This is what should be taught in churches across the globe. I want to read it over and over and am already sharing with my small group. This is what Christianity and life is all about. Great book!
