Why do we give some of these guys (like Rob Bell, Joel Osteen, Mark Driscoll) such a hard time (and I am in this boat), when they seem to be the only ones at least and trying and in some ways successfully “engaging the culture” we live in? The original question posed by Anthony was:
Question: how come people who claim to have the best theology to deal with transforming and reaching “the culture” seem the be the most ill-equipped, uncreative, and unsuccessful at actually speaking to “the culture?”
I would have to say that I think Driscoll stands outside of Anthony’s critique – at least to some degree. I included him because he takes alot of hits (at least it seems) from some of his Reformed brothers and sisters.
