Now in paperback! The New York Times bestselling author of Radical challenges Christians to break free from an American gospel that prostitutes Jesus for comfort, power, prosperity, and politics—and fully pursue the true gospel that exalts Jesus above all.
From his viewpoint in the capital of the United States, Pastor David Platt believes it’s time for disillusioned, discouraged, and divided Christians to follow Jesus into a different future. In Don’t Hold Back, Platt calls believers to take necessary risks and find the ultimate reward as we:
  • Work for—not against—each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, especially when we disagree on personal convictions.
  • Turn the tide on centuries of racial division in the church.
  • Trust all of God’s Word with conviction while loving everyone around us with compassion.
  • Do justice with kindness, and experience the good life according to God.
  • Play our part in spreading the gospel to all the nations of the world.
  • Seek God alone for the supreme satisfaction our souls’ desire.
With biblical insights that speak to the everyday lives of contemporary Christians, Platt shows that we can experience the awe-filled wonder of Jesus and otherworldly beauty of his church here and now. But in order to do so, some things need to be different. Starting not in “those people,” but in each one of us.
