What is Jesus worth to you?

It’s easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, Jesus said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everyth

"What is Jesus worth to you?" This question posed on the front cover of David Platt's The Radical Question resonate volumes throughout the booklet. This powerful exploration f Christian living both in and outside of the United States delivers an inspiring display of scripture personified. Consider the scripture passage of Luke 18 where a rich ruler asked Jesus what he must do to be saved. Jesus replied, "Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bea ...more

Dr. David Platt, senior pastor of the Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama writes this short and powerful book as a wake up call...a reminder to so many of us Americans, that our call to Christ was not a call to the American Dream that we are often found pursuing...but a call to pursue Christ, which looks much different and will call us to make radically different choices than those that do follow the American Dream.

The question that Platt poses is this, "What is Jesus worth to you?". Je

The Radical Question: What Is Jesus Worth To You, written by pastor David Platt is designed to make today’s Christian take a good hard look at themselves and challenges them to answer this question. Using his first-hand experience of house churches in China and contrasts the differences of these pious believers with an American megachurch, which he took pastor-ship of within weeks of visiting China. In an attempt to bring to light, exactly what Christ expects of us
Deborah Sloan
Dr. David Platt senior pastor of the Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, Alabama is calling those in Christ to ask themselves how much Christ is worth to them. To actually follow Christ’s teachings in giving to the poor and in calling others to Christ; to give up our easy American Dream life of Christian living to meet the needs of those less fortunate because that is what Christ would have us do; to embrace the notion that each of us is blessed by God for a greater purpose.

What is Christ worth
Deborah Boutwell
Really made me think "what is Jesus worth to me?" What am I sacrificing for Jesus? Has me considering how to change so that I am living a radical life for Jesus....radical based on the fact that we are so comfortable in our faith here in American. Radical because my faith looks so much like everyone else's...kind of boring, surface religion.

God truly spoke to me during the reading of this little book. Now I'm ready to go to the main book and let God move me even more.
Only 54 pages but it asks a very important question: What is Jesus Worth to You?" If you had to lose everything, would you do it?

I enjoyed this book as it reminded me of why I choose to follow Christ. This world can often distract from the what the real truths are as well as what is most important when all is said and done.

This is a short edition of the full book Radical. I reviewed Radical at

I think you should read the full book because there are nuances that do not get communicated in the short book. The short book could be an introduction, but because most of the book is cut from Radical I don't think many people will read both. They will read one or the other.

Interesting companion booklet to the book. Useful to introduce someone to the book or for a discussion session.

A deeply challenging question drawn from the gospel accounts of what Jesus said it meant to follow him.
Very challenging.
A very quick book. Just a abridgement/update on Platt's book Radical.
