I further responded saying that there were some (though few) Emergent leaders that I like and have great respect for. One of those men is Mark Driscoll. And so I decided to pick up his and Gary Breshear's book, "Vintage Jesus: Timeless Answers to Timeless Questions." It had the approval of guys like Charles Colson, Wayne Grudem, Bruce Ware, and others. This blew me away. Brian McLaren is nowhere in this book giving it his approval. Jim Wallace, Tony Campolo, and others didn't write the forward and none of the usual suspects were given blurbs on it.
I knew then, that this must be a good book. And I was not disappointed.
The book is simply a modern theological lesson on Christology. Driscoll deals with the cross, the virgin birth, the ascension, the resurrection, Jesus' humanity, His divinity, etc. This is just a detailed introduction into the studies of Christ. After each chapter where Driscoll deals with the issue at hand, he provides a list of common questions with accurate, excellent answers.
This book is orthodox and a sign of relief. Finally, it seems, someone that people consider Emergent, is getting it right. I am now officially a huge fan of Mark Driscoll, and the more I learn about him, the more I like him.
