This is a hard one to give stars to. Overall, four plus. Somewhere between 6 to 10 pages of the book kind of busted the curve.

Guy Fain That's what I've been hearing. Not just b/c it's explicit, but because he's out of touch with reality...

Aaron "Out of touch with reality"... that's one way to put it :^)

Jeanie I love Driscoll's cander but I was little disappointed with his response to his critics on this book.

message 4: by Trice (new)

Trice I'm curious - in what way "out of touch with reality"? haven't yet read his books, so wondering...

Valerie Kyriosity Y'all can read Pastor Wilson's more detailed 5-part review here, here, here, here, and here.

Susan I enjoy Driscoll's preaching & teaching, but very disappointed with their book. Very lop-sided...I don't recall him talking about his baggage he brought into the marriage by being sexually promiscuous. Seemed to cover Grace's mistakes, thoroughly....sometimes overkill. I did not hear a lot of personal responsibility for being a rebellious.
