Maybe you’ve had a moment when God did something radical in your heart. Putting your faith and trust in Him certainly feels like taking a giant leap, but really it’s just the beginning of the exciting, and—yes—radical journey that comes with agreeing to live as God calls you to.
What does being radical look like? In the Bible, the common characteristics of "radicals" are:
That’s a short list and a tall order, but basically it means you can be a radical, too. There’s nothing on that list that is impossible for you. There’s nothing on that list that requires you to be older, or more financially stable, or to have a college degree. No matter who you are or where you live, you can live a radical faith.
Meet Erin, who has learned practical ways to do just that. She'll help you be radical, too.
My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Plan for Radical Faith is one in a series of four books, which can be read in any order. The other titles are:
My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Journey to Discover Truth
My name is Erin: One Girl’s Journey to Discover Who She Is
My Name is Erin: One Girl’s Mission to Make a Difference
I am a radical. To you, that word “radical” might stir up images of someone who dresses weird, talks weirder, and seems to do whatever it takes to stick out like a sore thumb. While I’ve certainly made a fashion mistake or two, that’s not exactly the kind of radical I mean.
I’m talking about radical faith—the kind of faith that seeps into every corner of my life. Did you know that the Bible is chock-full of radical followers of God? These are people whose lives look different from the crowd because of their faith in a radical God.
Are you satisfied with the status quo? Or are you ready to embrace the kind of radical faith that changes everything? Once you’ve experienced radical life in Christ, nothing else will satisfy.
My name is Erin, and this is my story . . .
