I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to do a book review on Mark Driscoll's Religion Saves. I feel like this book is very well written and very well researched. AND it has given me a ton of things to think about and pray about and research for myself in the months to come. My preacher hubby saw this book and he plans on reading it next. I'd say it is a must read for anyone who has questions about their faith they want answered. I can't say that I agree with everything he says, but I am definitely better informed and now have even more to think about. I really did enjoy reading it-- go get yours now!
About the book:
And Nine Other Misconceptions
After 343,203 online votes on the Mars Hill Church website, nine questions for Pastor Mark Driscoll emerged as the ones most urgently calling for answers.
Inspired by 1 Corinthians, in which Paul answers a series of questions posed by the people in the Corinthian church, Pastor Mark Driscoll set out to determine the most controversial questions among visitors to the Mars Hill Church website. In the end, 893 questions were asked and 343,203 votes were cast. The top nine questions are now each answered in a chapter of Religion Saves.
After an introductory chapter devoted to the misconception that religion is what saves us, Driscoll tackles nine issues: birth control, humor, predestination, grace, sexual sin, faith and works, dating, the emerging church, and the regulative principle. Because the purpose of this book is to address commonly asked questions, all readers will find relevant, engaging material, written in Driscoll's distinctively edgy, yet theologically sound style.
In his distinctively edgy, yet theologically sound style, Pastor Mark Driscoll addresses the nine most controversial questions posed by visitors to the Mars Hill Church website. This book is part of the Re:Lit series.
