Nearly five years since publishing his last book, A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future?, controversial Pastor Mark Driscoll will return to the publishing world with a new book 30 years in the making called, Spirit-Filled Jesus.
Driscoll, who currently serves as senior pastor at The Trinity Church in Scottsdale, Arizona, was forced to step down in 2014 from his very successful but now defunct Mars Hill Church in Seattle due to allegations of bullying and plagiarism.
He was accused of plagiarizing the 2000 book written by theologian Peter Jones, called Gospel Truth, Pagan Lies: Can You Tell the Difference? Mars Hill also reportedly spent some $200,000 to land one of Driscoll’s books on The New York Times best-seller list.
Driscoll has wept and apologized over his past missteps and now wants to share lessons from the life-changing journey he has been on with the Holy Spirit.
“I have been on a journey with the Holy Spirit that has given me a life-changing new perspective: submitting to the Spirit has changed my marriage, how I raise my children and even how I minister to others,” said Driscoll in a recent interview with Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma Media at YouTube’s offices in New York City. “I want to share this journey with others, so they can experience the same power from the Holy Spirit.”
