Reformation is the continual reforming of the mission of the church to enhance Gods command to reach out to others in a way that acknowledges the unique times and locations of daily life. This engaging book blends the integrity of respected theoreticians with the witty and practical insights of a pastor. It calls for a movement of missionaries to seek the lost across the street as well as across the globe. This basic primer on the interface between gospel and culture highlights the contrast between presentation evangelism and participation evangelism. It helps Christians navigate between the twin pitfalls of syncretism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your message) and sectarianism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your mission). Included are interviews with those who have crossed cultural barriers, such as a television producer, exotic dancer, tattoo studio owner, and band manager. The appendix represents eight portals into the future: population, family, health/medicine, creating, learning, sexuality, and religion. Mark Driscoll was recently featured on the ABC special The Changing of Worship.
Mark Driscoll is one of the 50 most influential pastors in America, and the founder of Mars Hill Church in Seattle (www.marshillchurch.org), the Paradox Theater, and the Acts 29 Network which has planted scores of churches. Mark is the author of The Radical Reformission: Reaching Out Without Selling Out. He speaks extensively around the country, has lectured at a number of seminaries, and has had wide media exposure ranging from NPRs All Things Considered to the 700 Club, and from Leadership Journal to Mother Jones magazine. Hes a staff religion writer for the Seattle Times. Along with his wife and children, Mark lives in Seattle.
Laura5 Stars Out Of 5June 21, 2010LauraThis book was fantastic. I love how Mark Discoll disputed the "garbage in, garbage out" way of thinking. Honestly, as a christian who has wrongfully thrown out all of her "secular" music countless times, I wish he had done a whole chapter on it. The whole book was great though.
Alicia Tirrell5 Stars Out Of 5April 15, 2010Alicia TirrellThis book is funny and convicting. I have enjoyed Driscoll's writing style, and like the profiles of Christians who don't fit the "Christian" stereotype -- such as a Christian tattoo artist, or pub owner. It's an interesting read.
Jason Belcher4 Stars Out Of 5December 16, 2009Jason BelcherGreat book!! His views on Noah wanted me to re read the Genesis. And even though his views where way out there, he was right.
King Cove Bible Chapel5 Stars Out Of 5February 26, 2009King Cove Bible ChapelExcellent, intriguing and thought-provoking. And true to Scripture. The sub-title, "Reaching out without selling out", says it all. Highly recommended for all, especially pastors.
Derek Iannelli-Smith5 Stars Out Of 5June 12, 2008Derek Iannelli-SmithThis is a FANTASTIC book. Realize that the culture is changing around you? Church growth methods outdated? Last seminar you went to more of the same ole same ole? Then Driscoll's book will remind you of the gospel and get you thinking about being a reformissionary... Excellent!
