DAVID PLATT’S RADICAL Hits 52-Week Milestone On The New York Times Best Sellers List

The WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group announced that Radical, the first release for author David Platt, has been on The New York Times Best Sellers list (Paperback Advice) for 52 weeks. The title, with more than 750,000 in print, challenges Christians to live the radical life of devotion and sacrifice that Christ commanded, rather than a fruitless spin on the American Dream — and the message continues to resonate. This is the latest in a string of successes for the book, including landing the #3 spot on the CBA Top 50 Best Seller list for June 2011.

“It has been an extraordinary pleasure to watch David Platt’s Radical obtain and maintain a position on The New York Times Best Sellers list,” said WaterBrook Multnomah President and Publisher Steve Cobb. “The powerful message continues to positively impact Christians and, through them, people in need.”

The book is based on the teachings of Jesus as well as the “Radical Experiment” that Platt, a pastor, initiated with his Birmingham, Alabama church. The five steps enacted by participants were simple, but the impact was profound. Many congregants made major life changes. Some sold their homes and gave partial proceeds to the poor, while others adopted children or became foster parents. Yet others relocated overseas to serve the needy. Ultimately, all of Platt’s congregants showed their craving for an authentic, radical life of faith, rather than the bland counterfeit molded by American culture.

For readers looking for further direction on applying the Radical message, Multnomah released Radical Together in April 2011. This newest title shows readers how to implement Radical’s principles in their local church and features the passion, clear Bible teaching, and memorable storytelling that David Platt is known for.
