This book is blowing me away! Great insight into why and how our postmodern culture has come about. A must read for concerned citizens and the next generation of Christian leaders.

Francis Chan
“I quickly found that the American church is a difficult place to fit in if you want to live out New Testament Christianity. The goals of American Christianity are often a nice marriage, children who don't swear, and good church attendance. Taking the words of Christ literally, and seriously, is rarely considered. That's for the 'radicals' who are 'unbalanced' and who go 'overboard.' Most of us want a balanced life we can control, that is safe, and that does not involve suffering.”
Francis Chan, Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

“People who cannot restrain their own baser instincts, who cannot treat one another with civility, are not capable of self-government... without virtue, a society can be ruled only by fear, a truth that tyrants understand all too well”
Charles W. Colson, How Now Shall We Live?

David Platt
“God beckons storm clouds and they come. He tells the wind to blow and the rain to fall, and they obey immediately. He speaks to the mountains, 'You go there,' and He says to the seas, 'You stop here, and they do it. Everything in all creation responds in obedience to the Creator...until we get to you and me. We have the audacity to look God in the face and say, 'No.”
David Platt, Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream

David Platt
“We desperately need to explore how much of our understanding of the gospel is American and how much is biblical.”

“Having faith often means doing what others see as crazy. Something is wrong when our lives make sense to unbelievers.”
