Great Book review



Winner chosen. Couldnt get pics but I put everyone name on a slip and let let LynnMarie pick it out. So congrats Tymm, you are the winner!! Ill get it to you next week. Next week, I will also be giving away a book especially for moms!!!

Make sure you read below to get even more info! What a great book. I was asked to read a non fiction book and review it! Awesome. Ha vent gotten into a nonfiction book in a very long time. Religion save by Pastor Mark Driscoll is awesome. He takes 9 topics that churches have questions on and gives scriptural based answers to them. Its the first time I have personally ever thought thought about what the Bible really says about some of these things. I didn't start reading the book until this week which is unfortunate because there is a lot of good stuff on there. I dont want to give too much info but the author covers topics such as birth control, predesination and even humor in the church. Its not a total philosophical book. In fact, its a good ready and you really want to finish when you start it!!!

I loved it sooo much and I want all of you to go and get it but I also want to give away my copy so leave me a comment at the end of the post and at the end of the week, LynnMarie will draw a winner.
Religion Saves:


And Nine Other Misconceptions



After 343,203 online votes on the Mars Hill Church website, nine questions for Pastor Mark Driscoll emerged as the ones most urgently calling for answers.



Inspired by 1 Corinthians, in which Paul answers a series of questions posed by the people in the Corinthian church, Pastor Mark Driscoll set out to determine the most controversial questions among visitors to the Mars Hill Church website. In the end, 893 questions were asked and 343,203 votes were cast. The top nine questions are now each answered in a chapter of Religion Saves.



After an introductory chapter devoted to the misconception that religion is what saves us, Driscoll tackles nine issues: birth control, humor, predestination, grace, sexual sin, faith and works, dating, the emerging church, and the regulative principle. Because the purpose of this book is to address commonly asked questions, all readers will find relevant, engaging material, written in Driscoll's distinctively edgy, yet theologically sound style.



In his distinctively edgy, yet theologically sound style, Pastor Mark Driscoll addresses the nine most controversial questions posed by visitors to the Mars Hill Church website. This book is part of the Re:Lit series.
