Naturopathic Doctor Touted By Mark Driscoll Suspended Over Experimental Cancer Vaccine

This story is interesting to me not so much because of the relationship between Driscoll and the naturopath, but because of Mars Hill's response to the news out yesterday.John Catanzaro is a naturopath with an office in Bothell, WA.  According to this blogger (who apparently was/is using one of the vaccines), Mark Driscoll has "sung praises" of Catanzaro. However, according to a complaint from the WA Department of Health, Catanzaro promotes unapproved cancer vaccines he has developed in his c … [Read more...]

Would Mark Driscoll Fail A Course In His Own School?

Possibly.In 2009, Mars Hill Church launched the Resurgence Training Center. Also known as RE:Train, the program is designed "to train leaders and fuel the leadership engine of our multi-site and church planting movement at Mars Hill church." (p. 3). The program is set up like an academic institution in that there is a catalog of policies and the courses lead to a "Master of Missional Leadership." (see pages 4-5). Mark Driscoll is listed as one of the teachers in the school (see pages … [Read more...]

Publisher Thomas Nelson Alters Mark Driscoll’s Book Real Marriage To Correct Citation Problems

realmarriageholcombchanges

On January 9, I compared a section of Mark & Grace Driscoll's book Real Marriage to Justin & Lindsey Holcomb's book Rid of My Disgrace. In that post, I noted that the Driscolls did not give adequate credit to the Holcombs for some material adapted from the Holcombs' book on recovery from sexual assault. While some supporters of Mark Driscoll have minimized concerns about plagiarism and  inadequate citation, the publishers involved apparently consider the problems to be important. First, … [Read more...]

contractvcovenantchapman

In this post, I am going to summarize the remainder of instances of citation problems and recycling in Mark & Grace Driscoll’s book Real Marriage. In addition, I will add links to the previous issues discovered.First some issues I have not written about previously.On pages 53-54, the Driscolls write about "contract v. covenant marriage." To me, this use seems similar to their use of Dan Allender's relational styles of abused women ("tough girl, good girl, party girl"). First, from R … [Read more...]

Mark Driscoll’s Real Marriage and Robert Brannon’s Male Sex Roles: Coincidence or Something More?

NoSissyStuffSam

Chapter 3 of Mark and Grace Driscoll’s book Real Marriage is addressed directly to his male readers. In the chapter on Men and Marriage, Driscoll says that men are to be tough and tender but proposes that some men are too tough (tough chauvinists) and some are too tender (tender cowards). They are not terms of endearment.As I read through this section, some of the terms seemed familiar. Indeed, Driscoll's designations and descriptions for three of the tough chauvinists and one of the tender c … [Read more...]

Anti-Plagiarism Campaigner Says Mark Driscoll Did Not Adequately Cite The Work Of Peter Jones

Yesterday, I highlighted the work of the American Copy Editors Society against plagiarism. I learned about their work from Neil Holdway, treasurer of ACES and editor of Chicago area paper Daily Herald (incidentally, where Janet Mefferd once worked. Holdway was her boss there). I asked Holdway about the Mark Driscoll controversy and specifically about the initial allegations of his old colleague regarding Mark Driscoll’s use of Peter Jones’ work. In his response, Holdway took issue with the res … [Read more...]
