WaterBrook Multnomah has implemented a marketing plan for Christmas and the New Year that will help readers apply the message of Radical as they celebrate. The “Be Generous” action plan encourages individuals/families, small groups, and church leaders to have a radical Christmas by using the Gospel as their guide during the holidays. The plan includes specific ways to celebrate by living out the gospel in ways that are true, filled with promise, and ultimately world changing.

Readers have responded with astonishing enthusiasm to Platt’s call to rethink how Christians live out the Gospel, but has left them asking “What’s next?” Radical Together shows readers how to implement the book’s principles in their local church and features the passion, clear Bible teaching, and memorable story telling that David Platt is known for.
