Reformation is the continual reforming of the mission of the church to enhance God’s command to reach out to others in a way that acknowledges the unique times and locations of daily life. This engaging book blends the integrity of respected theoreticians with the witty and practical insights of a pastor. It calls for a movement of missionaries to seek the lost across the street as well as across the globe. This basic primer on the interface between gospel and culture highlights the contrast between presentation evangelism and participation evangelism. It helps Christians navigate between the twin pitfalls of syncretism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your message) and sectarianism (being so culturally irrelevant that you lose your mission). Included are interviews with those who have crossed cultural barriers, such as a television producer, exotic dancer, tattoo studio owner, and band manager. The appendix represents eight portals into the future: population, family, health/medicine, creating, learning, sexuality, and religion. Mark Driscoll was recently featured on the ABC special The Changing of Worship. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 2/14/2014

    " Good advice for "reaching out without selling out." We all love to read the specifics of someone else's success as a simple how-to, but every situation is different (as Driscoll illustrates). It's more about our attitude and our vision. We work out our own specifics with the wisdom of Christ. The real challenge is to talk less about evangelism "specifics" and actually do it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay Risner | 2/9/2014

    " Not great, but not bad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natasha | 2/3/2014

    " This book is a frank discussion about a Christian's responsibility to be a missionary in their own cultural context and not hide in the cocoon of Christian comfort. While this book is in need of updating, it is still quite relevant to the need for Christians to not shun where they are culturally, but to faithfully follow God in the culture he's placed them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jerry | 1/27/2014

    " Driscoll brings undiluted theology into contact with the culture. This is a good primer on forming a missional church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ronnie | 1/25/2014

    " This is my first Mark Driscoll, what an education! I was impressed with the fact that although he is radical, he didnt seem off in his own world at all but spoke with understanding...very cool "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chad Schollaert | 1/23/2014

    " Great book. Very convicting even though he is writing from the perspective of a very different culture. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Varney | 1/20/2014

    " Challenging reading. Straight talking, no messing style of Driscoll cuts the waffle and gets to the heart of the issue. Interesting insights into post modernity and the church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 1/20/2014

    " This is Mark Driscoll's first book, and he is challenging how we conventionally think about evangelism in America. George Barna states, "If all the unchurched people in the U.S. were to establish their own country, they would form the eleventh most populated nation in the world." Our churches are failing to spread the Gospel effectively. As Driscoll points out, "The churches in our neighborhoods may be more akin to museums memorializing a yesterday when God showed up in glory to transform people". It is time for a radical change in our approach to Jesus' mission, hence the name "reformission". You may be offended by Driscoll's frankness (let's just say he won't be filling the pulpit for Joel Osteen anytime soon), or by some of his more provocative statements. I certainly believe that you will be challenged by his vision for ministry and cultural contextualization. "

    " I suggest McLaren's evangelism book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vernon | 12/29/2013

    " Mark Driscoll discusses how Christians should have the mindset of a missionary sent to reach the lost of there city. Really cool insights on how the way we prepare for and carry out foreign missions can be applied to how we live our lives in our own neighborhood. "

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

    " good book, that gives a heart toward culture in a biblical way. what a tough balance. culturally liberal and biblically conservative. "

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

    " This is the one that got me started. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Cardinal | 10/11/2013

    " My kind of Christianity. Written by my pastor in Seattle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 D. Ryan | 10/4/2013

    " We all have a lot to learn from Pastor Driscoll and his work in Seattle. Count me in, eh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Hartzell | 10/4/2013

    " I loved this book from Mark Driscoll, who provides a framework for living within culture while also being missional by being culturally liberally and theologically conservative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Job Dalomba | 7/9/2013

    " Great the first time I read it in 2007. Not very good the second time and worse the third. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cass | 6/16/2013

    " Mark Driscoll is so refreshing. If you are tired of hiding in church and waiting for people to come find you...and Jesus...then read this book, laugh your head off, and then get to work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 6/16/2013

    " This book caused me to think about how Jesus truly reached out to the world, instead of seeing Him through my more "proper" and "religious" grid. He did some radical things for his time, but we are so used to seeing it through the eyes of religion. Very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 3/3/2013

    " Witty, relevant, and easy to read. Definitely enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Lancaster | 5/2/2012

    " Eye-opening concerning the modern church and its struggle against post-modernism and cultural significance. Definitely worth the read for all Christians, but do so with an open mind. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/2/2012

    " This is a must read for Chritians of any denomination. Mark insults every brand and flavor of Christian at some point -- but it makes you dig deep and examine your beliefs, motives, and presuppositions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 12/4/2011

    " All Christians wanting to reach out to this generation should read this. Driscoll is controversial and kind of a "shock" preacher but he makes excellents points. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tyler Hurst | 11/29/2011

    " This book and Confessions of. were my first introduction to Driscoll. These books are hilarious and informative. Something Driscoll has not been able to duplicate since. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ben Titsworth | 11/8/2011

    " Live out the Gospel and be missional... that's what's up! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Print | 10/3/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Los | 10/9/2010

    " Great book to be used as an introduction to what being "missional" looks like. Pastor Mark does not forsake the timeless truth of the gospel, but shows what it looks like to seek to share the gospel today in contextual ways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 12/31/2009

    " This book caused me to think about how Jesus truly reached out to the world, instead of seeing Him through my more "proper" and "religious" grid. He did some radical things for his time, but we are so used to seeing it through the eyes of religion. Very enjoyable. "

    " This book affirmed everything I believe about reaching our culture while convicting me like crazy. Driscoll speaks truth plainly and openly, with love and wit. "
