Radical Bible Study by David Platt

David Platt's best selling book Radical has been popular with small groups this past year. Small groups would cover the book together chapter by chapter. Recently however, Lifeway put out a dedicated small group video curriculum featuring a DVD and workbook that help group participants through the key concepts found in the book. In the Radical Bible Study David Platt encourages christians to come to Christ on His terms and to acknowledge the supremacy of Christ by surrendering to Him, not by comparing ourselves to others. Platt encourages the Christian not to chase after the comfortable living of the American dream, but instead focus on Christ and His mission. If Christians choose the cross and not comfort they will have a greater love for the lost and poor. You can view more details and see a video preview of the Radical Bible Study here.
