Publisher's Description

This is the story of the birth and growth of Seattle’s innovative Mars Hill Church, one of America’s fastest growing churches located in one of America’s toughest mission fields. It’s also the story of the growth of a pastor, the mistakes he’s made along the way, and God’s grace and work in spite of those mistakes. Mark Driscoll’s emerging, missional church took a rocky road from its start in a hot, upstairs youth room with gold shag carpet to its current weekly attendance of thousands. With engaging humor, humility, and candor, Driscoll shares the failures, frustrations, and just plain messiness of trying to build a church that is faithful to the gospel of Christ in a highly post-Christian culture. In the telling, he’s not afraid to skewer some sacred cows of traditional, contemporary, and emerging churches. Each chapter discusses not only the hard lessons learned but also the principles and practices that worked and that can inform your church’s ministry, no matter its present size. The book includes discussion questions and appendix resources. “After reading a book like this, you can never go back to being an inwardly focused church without a mission. Even if you disagree with Mark about some of the things he says, you cannot help but be convicted to the inner core about what it means to have a heart for those who don’t know Jesus.”—Dan Kimball, author,The Emerging Church “… will make you laugh, cry, and get mad … school you, shape you, and mold you into the right kind of priorities to lead the church in today’s messy world.”—Robert Webber, Northern Seminary

    Great book that shares the history and hard times of the church that I call home. Clearly centered on Jesus, Marks does a great job articulating the challenges faced at each step along the way. As a member of Mars Hill this also shows that Jesus is drivin' the boat with a great crew at the helm. Thanks Mark. In Christ...

    Great resource for any church planter, Mark's journey clearly highlights the good and bad in church planting. Some good lessons can be learned from this book, in particular the preaching of the Word while planting a culturally significant church.

    To be honest, I was surprised at the conviction to primarily hold to biblical doctrine through the life of Mars Hill Church. This is a very easy read, as Pastor Driscoll writes in a very genuine and conversational manner. This chronicles the struggles and successes of a church plant in Seattle and how God used all of those circumstances. Through this journey, critical decisions are made and can benefit any pastor/ elder or lay person with a passion to reach their community for the Gospel of Christ.Definitely recommended regardless of your agreement/ disagreement with Driscoll's methodology.

    This book is highly recommended and should be read by every pastor, elder, and worship leader. Those who have a desire to reach an increasingly post-modern culture without compromising doctrine will be encouraged to know they are not alone in either their struggles or their passion to reach the world for Jesus.
