Mark Driscoll on "Nightline"

Just watched my DVR'd "Nightline" story on Pastor Mark Driscoll and Mars Hill Church in Seattle. You can watch the piece at ABC News here. (It's about 7 minutes long.)

Too short. Too narrow, yet too broad. (Don't know if that makes sense.)

It hit all the places you'd expect: the sermons on sex, his yelling, his conservative doctrine, his Calvinism, the young hipsters that populate the church.

The two places I felt they were heading in some interesting directions were the brief times they showed Mark with his family and at home and the moment the interviewer began asking him about humility. More time spent in those two areas would have been fruitful for both those familiar with Mark and his ministry and those who are not.
That's my opinion, anyway.

I've reflected quite a few times in this space on Driscoll's preaching, writing, and ministry, but here's an older post that kinda sums up my appreciation of him: The Importance of Mark Driscoll
