WHAT IS JESUS WORTH TO YOU? - Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt

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, he said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...

BUT WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO LIVES LIKE THAT? DO YOU?

In Radical, David Platt challenges you to consider with an open heart how we have manipulated the gospel to fit our cultural preferences. He shows what Jesus actually said about being his disciple--then invites you to believe and obey what you have heard. And he tells the dramatic story of what is happening as a "successful" suburban church decides to get serious about the gospel according to Jesus.

Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream by David Platt

GOD IS LOVE - Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God by Francis Chan

GOD IS LOVE

Crazy, Relentless All-Powerful Love

Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts — it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same.

      Great selection of proverbs. Honestly, as an agnostic, I have read much of the bible but more as a deeply profound book of literature rather than the words of God. MAN wrote the bible after all. It's not like it fell from the heavens riding a stream of divine light. This is just my opinion. I do believe in God and I both love and fear HIM, but MAN has always been selfish and fallible so I tend to hold less stock in their creations.
