About the Author
Pastor Mark received a B.A. in Speech Communication from the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication at Washington State University, and he holds a masters degree in Exegetical Theology from Western Seminary in Portland, Oregon. He is the author of fifteen books.
In 1996, at the age of twenty-five, Pastor Mark and his wife, Grace, with the vision to make disciples of Jesus and plant churches, started a small Bible study at their home in Seattle, which at the time was the least churched city in America. Since that time, by God's grace, the church has exploded with upwards of nineteen thousand people meeting across thirteen locations in four states (Washington, Oregon, California, and New Mexico). Mars Hill has been recognized as the 54th largest, 30th fastest-growing, and 2nd most-innovative church in America by Outreach magazine.
Pastor Mark is the co-founder of the Acts 29 Network, which has planted over 400 churches in the US, in addition to thirteen other nations. He founded the Resurgence, which receives close to six million visits annually and services Christian leaders through books, blogs, conferences, and classes. And he is co-founder of Churches Helping Churches with Pastor James MacDonald, which raised over $2.7 million to help rebuild churches in Haiti and empower them minister and provide aide to the Haitian community, and helped deliver $1.7 million in medical supplies to the devastated country.
With a skillful mix of bold presentation, clear biblical teaching, and compassion for those who are hurting the most--in particular, women who are victims of sexual and physical abuse and assault--Driscoll has taken biblical Christianity into cultural corners previously unexplored by evangelicals. In the same year that he spoke at a Gospel Coalition conference with notable contemporary theologians like John Piper and Tim Keller, he also discussed biblical sexuality as a guest on Loveline with Dr. Drew, was featured on Nightline, and preached for Rick Warren at Saddleback Community Church.

Personally, I am wide read and have been exposed to much of what Driscoll calls tribes. I must admit it's confusing sometimes...Cessationist...continuationist...I read MacArthur, I read Piper, I read Jakes and the author that has had great influence over my theology is Charles R. Swindoll. You certainly can imagine the confusion I find myself in. I am pulled on all sides in my search of truth.
Now, a Call to Resurgence has settled my confusion to a certain degree, not entirely eliminated though. My headache really is, what is all these infighting? I sometimes ask myself in frustration... Who is Paul? Who is Apollo? Have we all not believed in one Christ? or there are many Christ's. I loved this book. Driscoll, though still sticking to his Reform stance, he has largely dealt a heavy blow to much of the divisions in the body of Christ. This book makes much Christian and Biblical sense. There's not a time to call for unity amongst the Lord's army than these very difficult times. We must present a united front. I recommend this book
The chapters can be a bit long, and personally, I enjoy reading with more thought breaks, but that is just how I like to read. I am a guy that doesn't like to read books much, but I really enjoyed this book. As a father, seeing what our children are growing up into, this is a book that everyone needs to read, if for no other reason, than to know where things can go if we don't make A Call to Resurgence.
It is so hard to imagine that we live in a world that is becoming so much more paganistic. Honestly, upon reading that for the first time, I immediately reacted with a strong, "No Way!". After reading through this book, and seeing the many signs and all of the evidence, it is clear to me, that our society is moving towards paganism at an alarming rate.
I would recommend this to anyone, but specifically the young adults, the young marrieds, the just out of High School, or even in the last year or two of HS. These are the most influenced, and can also be very influential, but they need truth, and our society isn't giving them much, if any, of it. This book is a refreshing source of truth based on our ultimate source of truth, Gods Word.
Get it, read it, you won't regret it.
