The basic principle behind this book goes back to the old chestnut: If being a Christian were a crime would there be enough evidence to convict you? Are we walking the talk? Are we living the example? Are we being salt and light? Would a non-believer, looking at our lives, want to have what we have? Radically Real is a wake-up call to the church. It is a call to look at the way we are living our lives. It is a call to return to biblical Christianity. Is Radically Real a set of legalistic rules? Hardly! Radically Real is more of a call for the church to clean up its act and reach out to the world. It is a call to meet people where they are, just like Jesus did! It is a call to leave judgment on the door step and be good fishers of men. Jesus helps us catch them and then He cleans them. It is a call to follow Jesus example, a reminder that God allows U-turns, a call to be a living sacrifice and count the cost as well as a reminder of the high price God paid for us out of His great love. It is a guide to the battle against the dark forces of life. It is a reminder to keep your sword sharp through serious time in the Word. It is a call to leave the middle of the road and make a stand for Christ. It is an audit to your heavenly bank account, a challenge to the church to be on fire and burn bright with the light of Jesus and, most importantly, it is a call for the church to boldly go into all the world with the message of the Gospel. Mostly, it is the book I wish I had when I first became a Christian. It is the book I wish the Christians had read who made me think thatChristianity was a cold and lifeless set of rules that I wanted no part of, rather than the vibrant, exciting fulfilling life I have found it to be.
