Book "What Is Jesus Worth To You?" by David Platt

About the book: It is easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, Jesus said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily...

About the Author: Dr. David Platt is the senior pastor of the Church at Brook Hills, Birmingham, Alabama. He and his wife, Heather, have two sons. David is the author of "Radical - Taking Back Your Faith From The American Dream" (see

My Review: This booklet challanges the readers to reflect and re-evaluate their lives. The author questioned us if we are following the real Jesus or the image of Jesus we create based on our conveniences. Using his own words, "We take the Jesus of the Bible and begin twisting him into a version of Jesus that we are more confortable with". And the author makes his point through different scenarios. 

This is trully a wake up call question that everybody needs to answer sooner or later in our lives.

This booklet was written by Dr. David Platt and was published by WaterBrook Multnomah, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group, a division of Random House, Inc, and they were kind enough to send me a copy as per my request.
