Something Needs to Change: A Call to Make Your Life Count in a World of Urgent Need by David Platt ~ Review

My Review:

David Platt tells of a life changing mission trip backpacking through the Himalaya Mountains, that altered the trajectory of his ministry. Seeing such desperate need in a remote area, still very unreached by the Gospel, people disabled by fast growing infections, rampant superstitions, and child prostitution.

Mr. Platt documents his journey day by day along with his daily Scripture reading through Luke, sharing interactions with the people he met as well as conversations with his travelling companions. He is very honest about how his perspective changed over the course of the journey, and he shares his heartfelt struggles with radically living the great commission.

I have read many other books by David Platt and I am a huge fan, and I really enjoyed how this book showed how parts of his ministry began and grew into his Radical ministry. This book had a different tone than his previous books, as it takes a more heartfelt, storytelling path, sharing his heart and calling us to action to step out from our American painted view of Christianity, but instead to live our faith Biblically.

Overall, a must read book for all Christians, very convicting, with hard truths, yet still encouraging, and inspiring. It is a good reminder that we are called and chosen to live God honoring lives, doing His work and spreading the Gospel. We are responsible to not turn a blind eye or be ignorant of the needs of others, not just physical or material, but most importantly of all their spiritual need for Christ.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
