This is awesome in helping to clarify some of the themes.

Chris - glad it helped. Ed Stetzer has also written on this and there's an issue of the Criswell Journal from the Southwestern Baptist seminary where Driscoll wrote on this at some length.

My understanding is that Justin took down the post that contains the Pagitt e-mail. Apparently, Justin was unaware that this was private correspondence and rightly removed the link once he found out.

I am glad I ran across your blog and watched video. Great resource to inform others. I don't know how much I concur with Tim Challies review because I find it undermines our call in some respects to avoid having a religious spirit that has seeped into the church like never before. While I don't agree with Mclaren's doctrine and don't even know what he stands for lots of times, I think he is right in looking at these religious institutions in the church. I don't see this religious system in the early church, and a great read on this is Alan Hirsch's "The forgotten ways". let me know what you think or know of it.

for the fame of JESUS!

Ken - thanks for the comment.

I like Hirsch's book - we're actually using it to help us think through some pretty critical things in relationship to how we lead and shape our church.

That being said, I think Hirsch is a bit hyper-critical about 'the institutional church.' Our context is different than the early church so we shouldn't expect the way we do church to look just like the way church was done 2,000 years ago.
