CNN’s Belief Blog considers Burk’s thoughts on ‘Real Marriage’

Communications Staff — January 9, 2012

Seattle pastor Mark Driscoll’s book, Real Marriage: The Truth About Sex, Friendship, and Life Together, is no stranger to controversy despite its recent release. CNN’s Belief Blog provides thoughts from several Christian bloggers and thinkers, including Denny Burk, associate professor of biblical studies at Boyce College, the undergraduate school of Southern Seminary.

Discussing a chapter of the book in which Driscoll presents his interpretation of 1 Corinthians 6:12, Burk, writes that the chapter has “the potential to wreak havoc in such marriages where one spouse will feel a whole range of taboos to be ‘permissible’ if he can convince his spouse to participate.”

Burk presents his thoughts about Real Marriage in more detail in his review at his blog,, which he updates regularly.

The article, “Pastor’s detailed box on sex divides reviewers, sparks controversy,” is available at CNN’s Belief Blog.
