The Radical Reformission
By Mark Driscoll
208 pages
Publisher: Zondervan (October 1, 2004)

Author: founding pastor of Mars Hill Church (Seattle) and Acts29 Network. Early participant in Leadership Network and the birthing of Emergent Village. No longer involved.

Organization: Two parts: Each seven chapters in the two parts consists of four sections: remember, repent, redeem, and reflect. (1) Loving your Lord through the gospel and (2) Loving your neighbor in the culture. The first part insists on following Jesus as the core of what it is to be Christian. The gospel is the story and explanation of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Our kindest gift to people is to connect them to Jesus and his people. The second part begins to equip the reader to enter the culture, proclaiming Jesus and clarifying his truth.

Intention: To inspire readers to enter the world’s culture in order to proclaim Jesus, envisioning Kingdom culture (189); to challenge readers to stay close to Jesus, who is the only way to stay free from the world, the flesh, and the Devil (189); and to examine theologically and practically the themes of gospel and culture.
