David Platt, author of the New York Times bestselling book Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, wants to know: "What did Jesus really mean when He said, 'Follow me'?"

For many Christians, following Jesus is seen as best done from a distance. We want to be disciples as long as doing so does not intrude on our lifestyles, our preferences, our comforts and even our religion. But what if we really took the time to look Jesus in the eye and see who He truly is? What if we really listened to Jesus' words and heard what He is truly saying? Jesus' invitation to follow Him was - and still is - an invitation into a relationship marked by self-denial, personal intimacy, single-minded ambition and ultimate joy. When people truly engage with Jesus' personal invitation to follow Him, everything changes, for He is worthy of all our trust and all our affections.

Building on the lessons in Radical, Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live. will motivate all of us to experience the grand purpose for which we have been created: to exalt the glory of God by spreading the gospel of Christ.

Call to "Follow Me" is Costly Call by discplemomLL on 6/26/13
Rating

David Platt's book "Follow Me" literally follows on the heels of his book "Radical," once again challenging the very core of what many Jesus followers believe.

Platt argues that salvation isn't merely "professing Jesus as personal Lord and Savior," but instead, is a personal relationship that evidences itself in obedience to God's Word. Following Jesus, is a call to die to self, to let Christ live through you, Platt says.

In this scripturally based book (just take a peek at the footnotes if you don't believe me), Platt purports that it's God's will for every disciple to make disciples. He challenges every disciple to be a disciplemaker, and he encourages readers to ask hard questions of themselves.

This it not a book to read quickly in one sitting. I guess you can, but then you'll be missing the point. "Follow Me" is a book to spend time with, to chew on, to pray over. It's a challenging read, as many books are. But the best part is when Platt asks you to do something with what you've learned. He asks you to write and then live out a personal disciplemaking plan. Because after all, what good is knowledge if you don't put it into action?

Followers of Jesus don't make disciples by learning more and more, but by doing something about what they've learned -- by passing it on -- by discipling another. That's what I like about this book. You're challenged to do apply biblical principles of disicplemaking.

It makes me wonder. What would truly happen if each follower of Jesus discipled one person each year? What kind of multiplication would we see?

Two things to note: There's a "Follow Me" simulcast scheduled for August 14 that you might enjoy after reading this book. You may want to check out www.multiplymovement.com to find out more about disciplemaking.
