Full Product Description
In ‘Follow Me’, author and church leader, David Platt, says that When Jesus called his first disciples to follow him, this was not merely an invitation to prayer, it was a summons to these men to lose their lives.. Yet somehow, he claims over 200 years we’ve taken these words from Christ and turned them into trite phrases in the church. In doing so, we have drained the lifeblood out of the Christian faith.
Exposing how the gospel has been watered down for the bland tastes of modern society, he points out the effects have been catastrophic – many who call themselves Christians, argues David, are no longer really following Christ. ‘Follow Me’ is wake up call for Christians to biblically and purposefully follow Jesus so that, when we stand before him, he will recognise us and we will not hear the words: ‘I never knew you.”
The author has the reader ask:
• How will I fill my mind with truth?
• How will I fuel my affections for God?
• How will I share God's love as a witness in the world?
• How will I show God's love as a member of a church?
• How will I spread God's glory among all peoples?
• How will I make disciple makers among a few people?
In his follow up to ‘Radical’ Pastor David Platt continues to challenge the culture of Christianity with a compelling examination of our own personal faith. How we respond to the summons, "Follow Me" has consequences for all who claim to live in the name of Christ. The book concludes with a "Personal Disciple-Making Plan" to help you develop your plan to grow as a Christian and to make disciples.
Follow Me by David Platt was published by Tyndale House in February 2013 and is our 19303rd best seller. The ISBN for Follow Me is 9781414373287.

Scores of men, women, and children have been told that becoming a follower of Jesus simply involves believing certain truths or saying certain words. As a result, churches today are filled with people who believe they are Christians... but arent. We want to be disciples as long as doing so does not intrude on our lifestyles, our preferences, our comforts, and even our religion.
Revealing a biblical picture of what it means to truly be a Christian, Follow Me explores the gravity of what we must forsake in this world, as well as the indescribable joy and deep satisfaction to be found when we live for Christ.
The call to follow Jesus is not simply an invitation to pray a prayer; its a summons to lose your lifeand to find new life in him. This book will show you what such life actually looks like.
You may think you are a Christian - but are you sure? Jesus' call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life. And find new life in him. Pastor David Platt continues to challenge cultural Christianity in this much-anticipated follow-up to Radical. This book compels each one of us to examine the validity and vitality of our own personal faith. "Follow Me" is a life and death message for all who claim the name of Christ.

About The Author
"Where in Radical he exposed cultural values and ideas that are opposed to the gospel, his purpose in Follow Me is "to move from what we let go of to whom he hold on to. I want to explore not only the gravity of what we must forsake in this world, but also the greatness of the one we follow in this world. I want to expose what it means to die to ourselves and to live in Christ." He says. - Other Retailer's Reader Review.
"This book won't disappoint. Platt dismantles many Christian cliches and calls you to examine scripture to see what God is truly calling us to do. It's not just one of those books that makes you question your faith, but it instead shows you what a true faith in Christ can lead into. Definitely a book for all Christians looking to strengthen their faith with Biblical truths." - Other Retailer's Reader Review.
