About this author

Dr. David Platt, Pastor of The Church at Brook Hills, is deeply devoted to Christ and His Word. David's first love in ministry is disciple-making—the simple biblical model of multiplying the gospel by sharing the love of Christ, showing the life of Christ, and teaching the Word of Christ in all nations. He has traveled extensively to teach the Bible and church leaders throughout the United States and around the world. Atlanta natives, he and his wife, Heather, made their home in New Orleans until they were displaced by flooding following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The Lord led them to Birmingham the following year, where they have served The Church at Brook Hills since 2006.

A life-long learner, David has earned two undergraduate and three a...more

“Radical obedience to Christ is not easy... It's not comfort, not health, not wealth, and not prosperity in this world. Radical obedience to Christ risks losing all these things. But in the end, such risk finds its reward in Christ. And he is more than enough for us.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

“We are settling for a Christianity that revolves around catering to ourselves when the central message of Christianity is actually about abandoning ourselves.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

“The modern-day gospel says, 'God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Therefore, follow these steps, and you can be saved.' Meanwhile, the biblical gospel says, 'You are an enemy of God, dead in your sin, & in your present state of rebellion, you are not even able to see that you need life, much less to cause yourself to come to life. Therefore, you are radically dependent on God to do something in your life that you could never do.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream
