I don’t think it’s too bad, but the “uncle-daddy” line seems a bit unnecessary. Can’t be too mad at it though since he’s obviously utilizing the common sterotypes associated with rural towns.

I agree with Nick and also the knocking boots thing is a little much. Max Lucado probably does a better job of this type of stuff.

Many people have much disdain for Mark Driscoll and rightly so but he is maturing and changing for the better I think. Even though this book is recent, I wonder how he now feels about how he described things.

Nick: You’re right, he is definitely using the stereotype of rural towns. Overall there is a certain appropriate “shock value” to the way it’s written.

Jeff: Mark is definitely known for being a bit outspoken. He often shocks people with the way he says things. I would have to agree that his approach with language has matured over time.
