You can read a man by his friends. Only if you know the friends.

The most recent post on Mark Driscoll’s blog is entitled it’s Like the Yankees of Missional Theology.

As you may know I have only recently discovered Mark, and so it was with great interest that I started to scan the list of names and his paragraphs describing them. I am a great believer in being able to assess a person by the company they keep, or the speakers they invite, or in the case of a blog in the blogs they link to! Imagine my surprise to realise that only ONE of his invitees I had even heard of!

Now then, where are the blog theology police when I need them? Perhaps they have already left the building in disgust at my postive comments on Mark Driscoll. Maybe they left long before that when they realised I was reformed AND charismatic.

Anyway, if there is anyone out there who would like to tell me what I should know about the following men who have all accepted an invitation from Mark Driscoll to speak at his confernece, I would be grateful. Just consider it a friendly chat – just a few of my other friends might listen in if thats OK…..
