Driscoll's answers to these questions first became a sermon series (which you can watch or listen to online here ), and then were fleshed out more fully in this book.I watched this sermon series about a year ago and thought it was quite good; Driscoll gave thorough and thoughtful answers to some very difficult questions, delivered in his characteristically engaging style.Either you have a book that provides a scholarly researched examination of the Bible or you provide opinion essays, this in between state does not work for me.My verdict is to skip this read and instead seek out books on the topics you are interested in.The mother-of-two delighted fans with a snap of the rugby legend tucking into his dinner on Thursday night. She took to Instagram earlier this week to ask her followers for a hangover cure as the wrap party for the show went into the early hours.‘If someone could please leave a bucket of cheese fries and a gallon of lilt at my doorstep. After an introductory chapter devoted to the misconception that religion is what saves us, Driscoll tackles nine issues: birth control, humor, predestination, grace, sexual sin, faith and works, dating, the emerging church, and the regulative principle.Because the purpose of this book is to address commonly asked questions, all readers will find relevant, engaging material, written in Driscoll's distinctively edgy, yet theologically sound style.2 1/2 Stars This book has some good information and interesting things to ponder, however when I look at the nine questions I am confused.
But like, that’s all.’We’re certain that cured Amy’s hangover, anyway!
Then we have Birth Control which many would consider a hot button topic and Humor... Right off the bat Driscoll starts with the hot button issue.
which I believe was only included because a)Driscoll wants to show off how funny he is b) Driscoll thinks he is really funny but is tired of people being offended. I liked hearing about the ancient history of birth control and all the weird things people used to shove up into themselves but I disagreed with a large point that he made and this set me up to be somewhat touchy for the remainder of the book.

Other topics such as The emerging Church, Predestination, and The Regulative Principle, are more advanced and would only interest/make sense to older more mature believer.
