The Readers of Radical

Tim Challies just posted a review of the book Radical by David Platt. You may recall that I have already reviewed the audiobook, the paperback, and the sequel. Challies' review approaches the book from a different perspective and ends up critiquing the reader more so than the book. And I think he's right. What does that say about me?

So I guess I have several concerns with the book—concerns that stem from the fact that it is well-written and built upon a gospel foundation and very compelling and exciting. These aren’t the kinds of concerns that equal “Don’t read it!” but the kinds that make me wonder if we enjoy reading these books more than we like applying them.
