    • Hi Anita… where did you receive that information? I have reviewed the 990 tax forms for Radical for the past three years, for example… and while on the website it says “All of the royalties from David’s published works go toward promoting the glory of Christ in all nations. Radical is one of the ways this is accomplished.” it’s not reflected in the tax forms. Something seems fishy with Platt…

      • I am very inspired by his teaching .he once said treat that u earning $50k per year and donate the rest of the money away. Therefore, I am more interested in his lifestyle to see whether he does what he preaches. I really like to know a way to validate his income and networth.

  1. David Platt lives in a home valued at over $1,000,000. He does not pay for the house… It is owned by McLean Bible Church. (The previous pastor did not have a parsonage/home provided for him.)
