Who Would Jesus Smack Down?

Fascinating article in the New York Times on Mark Driscoll. The article's focus is mainly the unusual ministry of Driscoll and his church that angers both liberals and conservatives alike. For me, what I found tremendously interesting is the very clear notion I have that author Molly Worthen simply doesn't understand him. She writes like a curious spectator at a zoo, watching the strange behavior of some never-before-seen exotic animal. It's beyond her how somebody could find comfort in Calvinism. At any rate, check out the article. Driscoll isn't always right (no pastor is) but I'm a huge fan of his preaching and what God's doing through him in Seattle.
