I just finished “Radical – Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream”, by David Platt and I would challenge you to read it as well.It is shocking that the biblical idea of spending your life to see the gospel spread seems so foreign to the typical american church and christian, but it is true. What I loved about this book is that it is not for a preacher. I think it is a tragedy that ministry, or doing something radical like visiting the mission field, is relegated to the ‘professionals’, while 90% of the church just lives ‘a Christian spin on the American dream.’ This book couldn’t be more clear or more biblical in its challenge to all of us, and I highly recommend it. Its $5 at amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Radical-Taking-Faith-American-Dream/dp/1601422210#reade… You can visit that link to watch a video about the book to get an idea of it.
