David Platt Announces New Book For Modern Suburban Christians: ‘Kinda Radical’

VIENNA, VA—As a follow-up to his hit 2010 book Radical, missionary, pastor, and author David Platt announced Monday a new book targeting modern suburban American Christians, entitled Kinda Radical.

The book will focus on being sort-of radical for Jesus, on lukewarm fire for him in some of our daily activities and interactions with others.

“Learn how to be kinda extreme in your faith for Jesus, some of the time,” the press release from publisher Waterbrook-Multnomah said. “If you’ve ever struggled with how to minimize the weighty demands of the gospel call on our lives, this book is for you!”

The book will reportedly feature a section on how to compartmentalize your faith. Those who struggle with their Christian beliefs occasionally seeping over into their work and home lives will learn how to relegate the gospel to Sunday morning church attendance. The implications of the gospel on how we spend our time and money will also be addressed, as Platt assures his readers that as long as they pay lip service to Christ, they can do whatever they want Monday through Saturday.

“Work, school, home, finances, church attendance—Platt will help you rationalize your lack of passion for Jesus so you won’t feel so guilty!” the press release continued.

Pre-orders of the first print run almost immediately sold out, according to a rep from Waterbrook-Multnomah.
