Challenged by Radical
I expected that this book would challenge and inspire and it has not let me down. Read it, but be prepared to be rocked.
"We are, by nature, receivers. Even if we have a desire to learn God's Word, we still listen from a default self-centered mind-set that is always asking, What can I get out of this? But as we have seen, this is unbiblical Christianity. What if we changed the question whenever we gathered to learn God's Word? What if we began to think, How can I listen to his Word so that I am equipped to teach this Word to others?.....When we realize we have the responsibility to teach the Word, it changes everything about how we hear the Word."
