2012 Most-Discussed Posts

JANUARY 2012 The always controversial Mark Driscoll and the buzz generated by reports of “church discipline” at Mars Hill Church and the release of his book, “Real Marriage,” stirred up conversation at the beginning of 2012.

On the Post-Evangelical Path

Out of the wilderness; onto a path — this is a summary of my spiritual/theological experience in 2011.

And I’m more convinced than ever: You make Internet Monk the great conversation that it has become. I remember talking […]
