Driscoll down-under, quote:

"..the Jensen brothers, ...are the two barrels of the gospel gun for Sydney Anglicanism."

  1. (I'm guessing it is one of the same Jensens that Driscoll mentions, but one of my favorite sermons is by Rev. Philip D. Jensen called "The God-Forsaken God".

  2. Yeah it's a reference to Philip and Peter Jensen. Not sure I've heard any of either, but I apprecaited Peter's excellent book The Revelation of God (except for the rather anti-charismatic last chapter...)

  3. We chatted with some of our AFES brothers about Syndey Anglicans and anti-charismaticism at World Assembly. It seemed they didn't know of any charismaticism other than Hillsong and its influence, which in their experience verges on health&wealth. The reformed charis thing is very recent, after all, and not yet v widespread.

  4. Yeh, and for that reason I'm not all that "mad" at Jensen. Though his examples in the book are mostly David Watson and Wayne Grudem.

    I get the impression that definition of charismatic is the USA norm too - hence Driscoll's "white suit" avoidance, and Terry Virgo says he doesn't really use the term in the US either.
