Mark Driscoll Announces Launch of The Trinity Church (UPDATED)

In an email to supporters and a You Tube video, Mark and Grace Driscoll have announced the formation of The Trinity Church. I reported late last year that Driscoll had formed the legal corporation along with Jimmy Evans and Randall Taylor.  At the time, I asked rhetorically if the launch would be in January. I was close.Watch:The website is TheTrinityChurch.com. The church is named after Grace Driscoll's home church in the Seattle area. So far, the church is a P.O. Box (see some pics … [Read more...]

Thomas Nelson Contract: Mark Driscoll’s Real Marriage Advance Was $400,000

Wenatchee the Hatchet has a copy of the 2011 agreement between Mark and Grace Driscoll's LLC (On Mission, LLC) and Thomas Nelson to publish Real Marriage. Dusting off my Mars Hill sources, I conclude it is legit. In it, we learn:-The Driscolls received an advance of $400,000.-The book had a working title of "A New Marriage with the Same Spouse."-The contract calls for the Driscolls to pay for corrections.

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

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...]

Kindle Edition of Mark Driscoll’s Real Marriage Adds Dan Allender to Acknowledgments

In mid-December, I wrote about Mark Driscoll's use of Dan Allender's material in Driscoll's book Death By Love. Others have written about the lack of citation of Dan Allender's work in Mark and Grace Driscoll's book Real Marriage.  In short, Allender refers to styles of relating often used by women who have suffered abuse -- tough girl, party girl, good girl -- in his book The Wounded Heart. The Driscoll's use the same scheme to describe abuse victims in their book Real Marriage, but without … [Read more...]
