First Review of Mark Driscoll's Confessions

If you've heard of Mark Driscoll (pastor of Mars Hill church in Seattle), you should take a few minutes and go read Steve McCoy's review of Driscoll's forthcoming book: Confessions (due out June, 2006). Here's a snippet to whet your appetite:
Driscoll early on points out his connection to the Emerging Church Movement, but he is careful to distance himself from Emergent. He says, "I myself swim in the theologically conservative stream of the emerging church" (p 22), but also says, "the emergent church is the latest version of liberalism. The only difference is that old liberalism accomodated modernity and the new liberalism accomodates postmodernity" (p 21).
Very, very, interesting. And Steve share's a lot more insightful stuff like this. Definitely looks like this will be a book worth reading. I'd encourage you to go read the whole review...
