From Left Behind to Right Behind: Denny Burk's review of Mark and Grace Driscoll's "Real Marriage."
Just read Denny Burk's enlightening review of Mark and Grace Discoll's Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship & Life (Thomas Nelson, 2012). The Rev. Driscoll, a committed Calvinist, is a well-known megachurch pastor in the Seattle area. If Driscoll's book is Evangelicalism's answer to John Paul II's Theology of the Body, Evangelicalism has no idea what the question is. Here's an excerpt from Burk's review: "Although some Christian authors comment on the ethics of a husband sodomizing his wife, I have yet to find any who contemplate the reverse. Yet the Driscolls give explicit instructions to wives about how they might sodomize their husbands in a pleasurable way." God help us.
