What People Are Saying

Kay Arthur"Christmas holidays were approaching and I was writing an inductive study on Luke when David's MSS, Follow Me came. All I could say was, "Be still, my heart." I felt this book was a gift from the Lord for me at this time and I was not disappointed! It confirmed and strengthened the burden of my heart. What a critically needed message for those who claim to be Christians.  If we will read it thoughtfully, examine it biblically, and have ears to hear so as act, then it could become a great tool for fearless, uncompromising biblical evangelism and discipleship."
—Kay Arthur, Co-founder Precept Ministries International

 "David Platt in his new book Follow Me offers an extremely timely word to disciples and to the 21st century Church. Bringing people to conversion is only a first step in leading them to a converted life. There is no works righteousness here, however, it's just about following where Jesus daily leads. The book is about the grace of adoption, about falling in love with Jesus, about desiring Him, about spiritual regeneration through Him, about life in the power of the Holy Spirit, and about the inescapability of being part of a church. The six questions posed at the end of the book will bring life (and Church) change. I commend Follow Me to all who seek to truly and joyfully to follow Jesus."
—Archbishop Robert Duncan, Anglican Church in North America

 "In a culture that attempts to make everything grey, David Platt paints a picture that is refreshingly black and white. In Follow Me, Platt offers the sobering reminder that Jesus invites us to come to him and die to ourselves. In so doing we discover the abundant life of discipleship that God intends for us. This book will challenge you in profound ways, but in reading it you will be grateful to have heard afresh the greatest invitation in all of creation, the invitation of Jesus Christ, 'Follow me.'"
—Dr. Mark Williams, General Superintendent of the Church Of God
