Death by Love (Mark Driscoll & Gerry Breshears)

Mark Driscoll's latest book DEATH BY LOVE (with Gerry Breshears) is about the cross. It's a bit different to other books on the cross. Like other Re:Li: books it's well designed. And like Mark Driscoll it's pretty hard-hitting. But, this one is Pastor Mark in action, writing letters to members of his church and applying the different facets of the cross to their lives (a bit like Leon Morris' The Cross of Jesus). It's warm but hard stuff - pastoral care that's unafraid to go head-on into the issues. Pastoral care that really loves. I've not finished reading it yet, but so far so good. And if Driscoll's humour isn't your thing, this doesn't have it. This one is serious the whole way.
