In an email exchange, Crossway stated, “We are in touch with Mars Hill and are conducting an internal review to ensure that our books published by Mark Driscoll have proper citation and documentation.” So far, NavPress, publisher of Wounded Heart, has not issued a response regarding Driscoll’s use of that book without proper citation, nor has Thomas Nelson commented about these latest allegations of plagiarism committed by its #1 New York Times bestselling author, and why it appears to have failed to fact check Driscoll’s books prior to publication.
And yet, Tyndale House refuses to budge. Sure, at one time, it may have been a money issue, but now it appears to be a pride issue. And you know what follows pride…
Both articles are necessary to understand just how silly and unChristian it is that Tyndale continues to stand behind a guy who lies, steals, and throws his friends under the bus.
