  1. Mark Driscoll presents his vision for the Emerging Church. While this the Emerging movement is far better than the Emergent, the problem remains that this is basically a SaddleBack ecclesiology geared toward twenty-something-urbanites rather than Mercedes driving baby-boomer-suburbanites. The goal is basically ‘find out what people want and give it to them and drop anyone who slows you down.’ So far from the biblical image of pastor as shepherd, this book drives the pastor into celebrity styled
