After 343,203 online votes, here are the top nine questions posed by visitors to the Mars Hill Church website, each one answered by Pastor Mark Driscoll in his own voice.

Inspired by 1 Corinthians, in which Paul answers a series of questions posed by the people in the Corinthian church, in 2008 Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle polled the visitors of his church's website to determine their most pressing questions. Visitors were allowed to vote up to 10 times per day, and in the end, 893 questions were asked and 343,203 votes were cast. The top nine questions are now each answered in this audio version of Religion Saves, narrated by Driscoll himself.

After an introduction devoted to the misconception that religion can save us, Driscoll tackles questions relating to birth control, humor, predestination, grace, sexual sin, faith and works, dating, the emerging church, and the regulative principle. Because the purpose of this audiobook is to address commonly asked questions, all listeners will find relevant, engaging material, presented in Driscoll's distinctively edgy - yet theologically sound - style.

Listener Opinions

    " Spot on except I am not convinced on the predestination but overall a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 2/3/2014

    " An interesting book, but ultimately not worth the $, rather listen to the sermons on the podcast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope Rozenboom | 1/28/2014

    " I don't think I'd have enjoyed reading this book as much as I enjoyed listening to Mark Driscoll read it. He's a good speaker, and I enjoy him. (I know not everyone does.) He answers 9 questions submitted by attenders of his church and listeners online. The topics range from predestination and emergent theology to humor and sex. He's a little more Calvinist than I'm quite ready to be, but I still think he's got great things to say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nickg Gleason | 1/13/2014

    " Decent book. Somewhat helpful on some topics, not so much on others. I like Driscoll, and he's an engaging writer, but because he's answering questions, it's pretty dry reading overall. I probably wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, but it's not terrible. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 L Miller | 1/6/2014

    " Torn. Good questions asked, good seeds for self-examination. Not always satisfied with the methodology in addressing them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josiahmeyer | 11/10/2013

    " Excellent theology, engaging writing. This book is great because you can just pick the chapter/subject you are interested in. A great little resource on the Christian life and some of the hotly debated points of theology in American Christianity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Alvers | 11/9/2012

    " A fine book. Driscoll is consistantly getting better at writting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caroline Fontenot | 8/30/2012

    " After the first two chapters I remained pretty bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janthomas | 2/9/2012

    " Unusual book but a good read.Based on a sermon series that answered the ten top questions (out of 893 questions) sent to the web site of Mars Hills Church, Seattle. Bold, honest and humourous style. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Whitney | 1/20/2012

    " In true Mark Driscoll form, you feel as though he is there talking to you. He tackles the hard questions with bible verses, clear resources and life applications. From the Emergant Church, Dating, Sex, Grace - he answers each question with biblical discernment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 1/10/2012

    " This is an awesome book. He presents great arguments in each chapter and lots of Bible references to back everything up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt Maples | 10/1/2011

    " This book was very surprising to me. I did not expect much from this book, but I found it to be both thoughtful and insightful. This book presents a reformed perspective on several significant questions in Christianity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve Moulden | 8/29/2011

    " Great companion series to his sermon series. Will make another good young adult/college and career small group study. "

    " This book was really insightful and very convicting. I really really liked it. I personally love Pastor Mark's style of writing/teaching. It is very bold and very in truth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/21/2010

    " Great expose of current topics. I disagree on his take on a few topics, Calvinism particularly, but a solid discussion book with some interesting insight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler | 12/2/2010

    " Pastor Mark does some excellent short dissections of the top ten asked for, voted on, talked about, controversy inducing theological or not so questions from his congregation. The Faith and Works chapter is the best of the bunch, along with his chapter on the Emerging Church. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 8/20/2010

    " great book if you have some questions about faith. Mark answers some big questions in a thoughtful and biblical way "
