      Dr David Platt, Pastor of The Church at Brook Hills, is deeply devoted to Christ and His Word David s first love in ministry is disciple making the simple biblical model of multiplying the gospel by sharing the love of Christ, showing the life of Christ, and teaching the Word of Christ in all nations He has traveled extensively to teach the Bible and church leaders throughout the United States and around the world Atlanta natives, he and his wife, Heather, made their home in New Orleans until they were displaced by flooding following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 The Lord led them to Birmingham the following year, where they have served The Church at Brook Hills since 2006.A life long learner, David has earned two undergraduate and three advanced degrees He holds a Bachelor of Arts B.A and a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism A.B.J from the University of Georgia, and a Master of Divinity M.Div , Master of Theology Th.M and Doctor of Philosophy Ph.D from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary He has previously served at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary as Dean of Chapel and Assistant Professor of Expository Preaching and Apologetics, and as Staff Evangelist at Edgewater Baptist Church in New Orleans He has authored several books, Radical Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, Radical Together Unleashing the People of God for the Purpose of God, and Follow Me A Call to Die, A Call to Live David recently founded Radical, a resource ministry, dedicated to serving the church by making disciples of all nations.David holds a deep and abiding passion for global disciple making I believe that God has uniquely created every one of His people to impact the world Some may count it as idealistic, but I believe it is thoroughly biblical, rooted in Psalm 67 1 2, yet covering Scripture from beginning to end God is in the business of blessing His people so that His ways and His salvation might be made known among all people David practices what he preaches through his travel nationally and internationally, teaching from God s Word in churches, seminaries, the underground church or even under a shade tree in Africa or Latin America.David and his wife, Heather, live in Birmingham with their four children.radicalbrookhillssecretchurchtwitter plattdavidfacebook plattdavidradicalthebookradicaltogetherfollowmebook

    1. Initial Questions What is it about David Platt s writing that allows him to turn, the Pick up your cross and follow me, of Jesus teachings into a national best seller I m suspicious Or, to play the cynic, does he lure people in with an intriguing, difficult message and then deflate the call to follow, or completely toss the message aside Kudos to David Platt for sparking a healthy critique of the church moderate examination is always a sign of health One thing Follow Me strongly accomplished was [...]


    2. I read a book by Platt recently and decided to read some of his other books This book wasn t as challenging as Counter Culture but nevertheless was a worthwhile read Whilst Counter Culture addresses specific issues and how Christians respond to them abortion, gay marriage etc, Follow me deals with Biblical discipleship Platt begins by examining the state of Evangelical Christianity in the West represented by North Americans suggesting that most people that calls themselves Evangelical are not tr [...]


    3. I am torn in how to rate this book It s importance as a follower of Jesus is than 5 stars and for that reason I would recommend every Christian to read it, and even every person to read it because of the material Platt presents He does a very good job addressing all the shady, manipulative, and ineffective ways that pastors, preachers, and church leaders have tried to use to lead people to Jesus over the centuries and recent decades I grew up in a church and church culture that relied on many o [...]


    4. Those who are familiar with Platt s work have probably began to grasp the idea that Platt is unmistakably a visionary with a passion for foreign missions Follow Me does little to dispel these speculations In his book, Platt s agenda is to remove the popular misconceptions found within the church of what it means to be a true follower of Christ With chapter titles such as Unconverted Believers , Superficial Religion and Superficial Regeneration and Don t Make Jesus Your Personal Savior , its unmi [...]



    5. Ugh I promise you I was hoping this was good The first chapter wasn t too shabby but it continued And continued And continued The longer it goes on, the worse it gets Somewhere in there Mr Platt recites a letter he wrote to his now wife from back in the day, and he complains about his diction, tone, and content Guess what, Mr Platt it s just as bad today Once again Mr Platt gives us his version of Christianity, an insular, eisegetical Christianity Apparently the only way to be a true, authentic [...]


    6. Take Paul Washer, put him in a t shirt, have someone from DAAP design the book cover, and you have David Platt.David Platt does an excellent job of exploring the difference between merely believing in the existence of Jesus and following Him He condemns superficial religion while exhorting the importance of viewing the Church as a family By the end of the book, Platt makes a good case that following Christ means that our life should and needs to reflect the change from the old man to the new man [...]


    7. This book was one that I really looked forward to read, and it did not disappoint Found it challenging than Radical Dr Platt lays it out for each and every believer our call to make disciples and what a true disciple of Christ looks like If you attend church and are not involved in sharing your faith or helping others grow in their faith, put on your steel toed boots because your toes are going to be stepped on Thank you Dr Platt for challenging me and thank you Holy Spirit for convicting me in [...]


    8. This is a really good book Living like Christ is what we are all called to do Sometimes it is easy and sometimes it is not Some things are easier for certain people also Everyone is different and has different strengths and weaknesses For extroverts, this would probably be no problem But for shy people like me , this doesn t come as easy It s hard enough for me to talk to someone I don t know This book encourages me to do , hopefully I can get mentors around me and I think that will help a lot O [...]


    9. An amazing, very impacting book Follow Me explains very clearly what Jesus asks of His true followers, and why so many people are confused as to what following Jesus really means in this present day and age A wonderful book for Christians of any age to read


    10. Why did you start this book I think I discovered David Platt a year ago or so and I have listened to some of his sermons and have been quite impressed with his commitment God, his passion to serve Him at any cost, and his enthusiasm for holy living So, naturally I wanted to read his books This is the first one I picked up and I went into it with high expectations Why did you finish this book This book was finished by willpower it does have truth in it and it is helpful and it would feel wrong to [...]


    11. I am really mixed on this book There are definitely good aspects of this book encouraging people to truly follow God However, it really feels like euphoric pep rally encouragement It also seems really aimed at extroverted evangelicals It also seemed as though he was only putting forth one type of witnessing of the Christian faith and that is something I strongly disagree with.Many of his examples are great to an extent It could make people feel all warm and fuzzy inside to see these examples and [...]


    12. For me, Platt is on the attack too much He s attacking surface faith, which needs to be exposed for what it is He derides popular sayings like personal Savior , giving it an overtone I ve never really heard Jesus IS our personal Savior, no matter how Platt spins it.In doing that so much and so often, he fails to see the diversity God uses to win souls and make disciples Yeah there are examples of those in business and the world but I really got the sense that Platt thought I had to be HIM to rea [...]


    13. A solid follow up to radical, with a little meat on it The book begins with bold statements on the nature of biblical salvation, shooting down alot of contemporary easy believism He is still a bit repetitive, I feel like the message of the book can be gained in the first couple of chapters, but he does go on to give some important points about community in faith later in the book Also, the end of the book is pretty practical on application of discipleship.Overall, a good book Worth reading.


    14. Why, after reading Radical and radically disagreeing with it, did I read Follow Me I heard that David Platt had changed some of his errors in the first book If he did, I didn t notice Platt gets basic Christianity right, and understands a lot of the errors that are perpetuated in modern Evangelicalism, but he still fundamentally misunderstands the Great Commission.


    15. If you consider yourself a Christian this is a must read book If you don t like change then this book is not for you You will be challenged to follow Christ, not just be a Christian There is a difference.


    16. A great book for those searching for what it means to live and die for Christ Also a great resource for those looking to enhance their approach to evangelism and disciple making.



    17. First half was interesting, second half felt like I was getting beaten over the head Great truth, could have been half the length in my opinion.


    18. God s pleasure in you will always be based upon Christ s performance for you For by grace you have been saved through faith And this is not your own doing it is a gift from God Ephesians 2 8 I have done nothing to merit salvation A sobering and comforting thought It is only because He died, bled, and rose from the grave, gladly, for me, a wretched sinner saint and has said Follow Me , placed His Spirit in me freely, and thus enables me to live is Christ, to die is gain Thank you Lord What a gift [...]



    19. Very challenging and thought provoking Highly recommended if you want a book that challenges you take your faith seriously.


    20. Platt again makes a challenge to nominal Christian living check out his book Radical The whole of Christianity is not asking Jesus into your heart but rather in following Christ Believing the gospel is not the end, or merely the means to an end, or just an escape from hell Believing the gospel is a start to a brand new life, one in which Jesus calls to fearful and stubborn hearts Follow me Not always a fan of modern Christian living books, David Platt has not failed to challenge my thinking yet [...]


    21. 3.5 stars Platt urges all believers to be disciple makers, and powerfully so This is an important call, and he makes it using a decent amount of scripture, with a strong emphasis on the sovereignty of God over salvation.But he is weak in the dominion mandate Though he does lip service to the legitimacy of varying vocations, he strongly implies that all Christians would be foreign missionaries if they were fully committed to Jesus He also makes several of the standard mistaken evangelical assumpt [...]


    22. I ve been looking forward to reading this book ever since I heard it was coming out Platt s other book Radical has been very impactful in my life I was eager to read this follow up, and it certainly does not disappoint As a matter of fact, I think Follow Me is even impactful I fear there is an epidemic of easy believism in the North American church Christ instructed his disciples to follow Him He never said to his disciples, accept Me into your hearts Who are we to accept Christ He is the one w [...]


    23. Follow me is the most incredible piece of Christian literature I may have ever read apart from the Bible ha ha Platt is certainly up there with the greats of the faith with his truly remarkable words which cut one to the absolute core, revealing the great depth of sin within us yet, such love and encouragement flow from him The reader is filled with the courage to change their life Their view of Christ Their understanding of the purpose of life Some of the greatest concepts and commands of human [...]


    24. My youth minister and I read this book together by doing a chapter or 2 a week I was blessed to read this with him and discuss on Wednesday what we were learning and how we could share it with the church we serve I liked David Platt s book Radical and this seems to be a good follow up to that It talks a lot about dying to yourself and following Christ and what that looks like I appreciated reading about the stories of his life and some of the things that he has seen happen in churches around the [...]


    25. Highly practical book I love the self examination and personal planning at the end What is great about this book is that there is no new stuff, no gimmicks, no trendy assumptions It s just basic blocking and tackling of the Christian life His theological foundations are spot on, and the implications of those foundations lead to clear and basic application This is a good book to read in a group, and the personal plan can easily be used as a group plan, or a church staff plan My only issue with th [...]


    26. The author provides a quick, blunt, and needed reminder of my primary identity as a Christian I could have used creative illustrations and pithy quotes, but I can get those from other sources Reading this close to the start of a new year and a new semester, this little work re doubles my resolve to be purposeful about investing in longitudinal relationships I m willing to give out Scripture in passing, and there is value in this, but real multiplication, as the author points out, requires inve [...]


    27. I read David Platt s book Radical about four years ago, and thought that it was a great message about not prioritizing the American Dream over your faith This recent book, Follow Me, does not really add much to that original message I even listened to the book twice to see if I was missing something In the end I felt that this book was a collection of personal rants than any kind of coherent work with a driving thesis Perhaps there are some good thoughts in there, but it lacks direction and fo [...]
