Book review: The Radical Disciple by John Stott

I have to say, I was a little daunted to read a John Stott book, they all seem so weighty.
And that it not to say this book is light weight, but it is very readable. Stott takes on some of the aspects of living out the Christian faith that it is very easy to ignore or let slip past us in the rush of life.
It is well worth reading.
Some of the chapters such as Christlikeness and Maturity I found easy to read and thought provoking. Others such as Simplicity I found… Not to simple to read.
But through the whole book I found it useful to stop and think how it all applied to my life, such as the chapter on Balance:

All in all, I would very much recommend is book as an opportunity to ask ourselves some awkward questions and in doing so, move closer to Christ, which is after all, the aim of the game.
