Have you heard of the book "Radical" by David Platt? It's part of a church movement called "The Radical Experiment" which essentially challenges Christians to take a hard look at the way we live our lives. It's extremely convicting and invigorating at the same time, and it's definitely not for "Sunday-only Christians" (or maybe it is...who am I to say?!).
Without going much further into it (you can do that on your own), I am excited to be a part of an online read-along of Radical, put on by another blogger, Marla Taviano. The study starts Sept. 7 and will go over a chapter a week. I am so excited about this! I have read the first couple of chapters before and it's the kind of book that really needs to be discussed and brainstormed about. Due to kids and other fun aspects of my life (insert sarcasm font here), I never made the time to finish reading. So now I have motivation! I am posting this on my blog to invite others to join along in the reading and subsequent discussions. If you have a heart for missions and (like me) struggle with Matthew 19:21-22, this might be just the study you need! Oh, and you don't necessarily need to have a blog to participate. :)
