Driscoll was promoting his current sermon series (and e Book) on the Old Testament book of Ruth.
Anyone who knows me or has read will understand why that tweet woke me up. Naturally, my curiosity got the best of me, so I clicked on the link to see what Pastor Mark was up to.
Naturally, it also reinforces his views of manhood and womanhood.
In the sermon, he categorizes Naomi, Ruth, and Boaz all as “singles” and uses the book of Ruth as a jumping off point to advise singles about dating and sexual purity and to coach single women to look for a man like Boaz whose qualifications pass muster—he “loves God and has a job.” What did surprise me was his unabashed, effusive description of Ruth as a “Cinderella story.” At least on this point, I think Driscoll got it right. The label “Cinderella” is an open admission that there’s a problem with this view.
No other area of our life impacts our quality of life more than this one.

Some mornings, I don’t need coffee to jolt me awake. The tweet that did it recently came from a friend who, with a simple “ahem,” forwarded a Mark Driscoll tweet to me.
In an interview late Tuesday, Driscoll called Busch's assertion "ludicrous," saying he took it "straight from a fictional movie script" she has been working on for eight years and that he has proofread.
Patricia Driscoll, seen in May with ex-boyfriend Kurt Busch, called his assertion that she was a covert assassin "ludicrous," saying he took it straight from a fictional movie script she has been working on.
The link took me to a video from the series entitled, Ruth—Redeeming Romance.
With a title like that, I was not surprised to learn Driscoll views the book of Ruth as a romance between Boaz and Ruth and sees Boaz as the Kinsman Redeemer hero who rescues Ruth from her abysmal life as a single impoverished woman.
