Publisher severs ties with Megachurch Pastor

Mark Driscoll has lost his publisher. The Seattle megachurch pastor has been in hot water lately over charges of ethical breaches and poor leadership at his Mars Hill Church, which has some 14,000 members. Tyndale House was to publish Driscoll’s next book The Problem with Christianity but won't be doing so anytime soon--and will not reprint last year's A Call to Resurgence. Driscoll has apologized for using ResultsSource, Inc. to buy up copies of the book so it appeared to have more sales than it actually did. Driscoll also faces allegations that a significant part of the book was plagiarized. You can read Driscoll's apology here. Read more about the controversy at the Daily Beast here.
