I have the unique privilege of hosting a group of young people in my home every Thursday night.
Each week, a small group of College & Career students hang-out, laugh, chat, drink tea and share their thoughts within the context of a biblical study.
This fall, I decided to use David Platt‘s “Follow Me: A Call To Die. A Call To Live.” as a platform for our study. I had read the book previously and felt that it would be a great resource for these young adults. Though they’ve been well churched, they seem to be in a really great place of developing their faith as their own.
I believed that this book would be a great asset to their journey.
After a bit of research, I found that there was a DVD teaching series and coinciding work books to guide us through discussion. Both in the video sessions and the materials, Platt does an excellent job of keeping his teaching grounded in biblical truth, peppering each section with Scripture to dive into.
If you’re hearing about this book and/or material for the first time, here’s a brief description and video clip of Mr. Platt’s take on his latest work.
“You may think you are a Christian – but are you sure? Jesus’ call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life. And find new life in him.” (www.FollowMeBook.org)
How should Jesus’ words “follow me” change the way we live our lives and organise the church?
