From Matt Smethurst at The Gospel Coalition:
Have you ever met an unconverted believer? Or watched blood transform into Kool-Aid at church?
David Platt has.
Almost three years since the release of his New York Times bestseller Radical, Platt has written a sequel about the painful glory of Christian discipleship. Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live (Tyndale, 2013) explores the gravity of our Lord’s call as well as the joy and satisfaction found when we leverage our lives for him. During The Gospel Coalition National Conference next month, you can hear Platt speak twice on these themes: once on “Why the Great Commission Is Great” and again on “Every Disciple Making Disciples, Every Church Multiplying Churches.”
I corresponded with Platt, pastor of The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama, about unconverted believers, whether the gospel’s a call to life or to death, creating a culture of discipleship in our churches, and more.

Christianity Today recently interviewed David for their Leadership Journal. We wanted to highlight this interview because it gives a glimpse into the personal journey that Pastor David Platt and his family have been on since he taught at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.
The interview covers David’s calling to be a pastor, his upcoming book entitled Follow Me, his reliance upon the Bible in leading Brook Hills, the universal call to disciple-making, and more. In addition, there are helpful gems throughout the interview concerning how each of us can be active participants in the Great Commission.
