New York Times best-selling author David Platt takes readers on a heart-wrenching, soul-searching journey through impoverished villages in the Himalayan mountains. With riveting passion and surprising vulnerability, Platt dares readers to make a difference in a world of urgent need, starting right where they live.

While leading a team on a week-long trek of the Himalayas, bestselling author and pastor David Platt was stunned by the human needs he encountered, an experience so dramatic that it “changed the trajectory of my life.” Meeting a man who’d lost his eye from a simple infection and seeing the faces of girls stolen from their families and trafficked in the cities, along with other unforgettable encounters, opened his eyes to the people behind the statistics and compelled him to wrestle with his assumptions about faith. In Something Needs to Change, Platt invites readers to come along on both the adventure of the trek, as well as the adventure of seeking answers to tough questions like, “Where is God in the middle of suffering?” “What makes my religion any better than someone else’s religion?” and “What do I believe about eternal suffering?” Platt has crafted an irresistible message about what it means to give your life for the gospel—to finally stop talking about faith and truly start living it.

NYT BEST-SELLING AUTHOR: David Platt’s Radical (Multnomah, 2010) became a mega-bestseller with 1.4 million sales. Somethng Needs to Change advances the core gospel message of Radical—but in a fresh, innovative fashion.

INTRIGUING READING EXPERIENCE: The author’s voice in previous books emphasized teaching/preaching. This book details an exciting yet sobering trek in the Himalayas that will captivate Platt’s readers—old and new.

MILLENNIAL MARKET: Because of their age, most millennial Christians would not have connected with David Platt’s Radical. However, his vulnerable, raw style, tone, and message in this book are a great fit for this audience.

DENOMINATIONAL—AND BEYOND—SUPPORT: The author is well-known, a leader, and beloved among Southern Baptists—America’s largest Protestant denomination. And because of his core messaging, the author is appreciated across many streams of evangelical faith, including groups such as The Gospel Coalition and Desiring God.

David Platt is the author of three New York Times bestsellers, including Radical, and he serves as Lead Pastor at McLean Bible Church in metro Washington, D.C. He is the former President of the IMB (International Mission Board), and founder and chairman of Radical Inc., an international ministry that serves the church for the cause of Christ—to glorify God by making disciples and multiplying churches among all nations. Platt received his Master of Divinity (M.Div), Master of Theology (Th.M), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. He lives in Virginia with his wife and their children.

“Pastor Platt shares his own experiences trying to live more outwardly and compassionately—and asks readers to do the same—in this affecting evangelistic travelogue through the Himalayas. Composed as an eight-day personal journal, Platt’s emotional account combines several trips into a single cohesive story. . . . The pastor also shares his spiritual struggles as he questions the heart of God, the reality of hell, and whether spiritual needs outweigh physical ones. Platt’s message isn’t new, but his diaristic approach (which includes many sketches) is engaging and effective.”Publishers Weekly

“Grippingly vulnerable, humble, and unforgettable, this book holds the catalytic power for life change. Platt leads you on an astonishingly transparent interior journey of his heart and mind, demonstrating transformative, cruciform discipleship in real time.”—Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

“I wholeheartedly recommend Something Needs to Change. God spoke to me through it, and that’s the best I can say about any book.”—Randy Alcorn, founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries and author of If God Is Good

“Riveting. Wrecking. Raw. Something Needs to Change is a harrowing physical and spiritual journey through areas of deep need, tenuous terrain, and spiritual oppression, as well as a beautiful, hope-filled invitation to come penetrate the present darkness with the light of Christ. This resource will reawaken your faith, reorient you to the calling of Christ, and remind you of the importance and value of your role in God’s redemption story.”—Louie Giglio, pastor of Passion City Church, founder of Passion Conferences, and author of Not Forsaken

Something Needs to Change will bring you to a crossroads in your faith: Who and what are you living for? If heaven and hell are real and there are billions of people who don’t know Jesus, then what are you going to do about it? Prepare to be challenged.”—Jennie Allen, author of Nothing to Prove and founder of IF:Gathering

“Few of us will trek the Himalayas, let alone face the type of suffering and need that people experience daily in that region and around the world. In Something Needs to Change, David Platt serves all of us by exposing us to the stories and lives of those he encountered during his personal journey through this mountainous region. We all want our lives to count, and Platt helps guide us toward a vision for just that.”—Trillia Newbell, author of Sacred Endurance, Enjoy, and the children’s book God’s Very Good Idea

“The message of David Platt’s new book, Something Needs to Change, could not be more timely. I have witnessed the kind of heartbreaking situations David describes, and I agree with him that what needs to change to address such suffering is us. It is only when we yield to the transformative work of the Holy Spirit in us—to make us more like Jesus—that we can participate in the transformation God is doing around the world. I know personally how much joy can be found in allowing Christ to work in and through me this way. Read this book, join the journey, and be open to the change God wants to do in you!”—Edgar Sandoval Sr., president of World Vision U.S.
