A "put down" to the local church?
I really enjoyed David Platt's book "Radical," so I was very optimistic going into "Radical Together." Platt builds on his former book by using some of the same concepts, with a few different examples. The book is subtitled, "Unleashing the people of God for the purpose of God." To Platt, the purpose of God is simply missional. There was a major emphasis put on the importance of missiology to the Christian, even to the point of making the local church seem unimportant.Was this review helpful?

Platt used an example of starting at his church in Louisiana and immediately reallocating funds to missions. He mentions nothing, however, about all of the people who had to take pay cuts, whose livelihoods were greatly affected, and who left the church completely due to this.
Overall, Platt's "Radical Together" is a nice idealistic book, but once we realize that not all of us are called to be third-world missionaries, the ideas seem nothing more than that.
