Driscoll, Emerging Types, and Biblicist Theology

In a book entitled Listening to the Beliefs of the Emerging Churches, Mark Driscool writes a chapter concerning the emerging church and biblicist theology.

He writes,
"This chapter is my attempt to address three of the hottest theological issues in our day and to correct emerging error with biblical orthodoxy. As a devoted biblicist I am seeking to be as faithful to Scripture as possible, which explains the many Scripture references in this chapter.

I will explore what is arguably most distinctive about Christianity, namely the nature of God’s revelation, the nature of God, and the means by which God has chosen to save some sinners. The topics the publisher chose for this book are the essential elements of the Christian gospel according to the apostle Paul, who said that the second member of the Trinity, Jesus Christ, atones for our sins by his death and resurrection in fulfillment of the Scriptures."

Mark Driscoll is an important voice in the American church for our generation. I encourage you to look into this book and pray that the Lord continues to steel his heart and upholds him in faith and integrity.
