    What do you think about him? No you personally, and not what some blogger or website thinks which may be incorrect? I am reading his latest book and I can sense a zeal for the lost. However I also sense a misunderstanding of Reformed theology, and a arrogant attitude to admit he does not know everything. However his zeal for the lost leaks though the pages of his book. His writing style is awkward at times, and very unfocused. However I could say the same of Ray Comfort. Not a seasoned writer, but a good writer for todays ADD readers. Writing a academic level work is not the same as writing a book for the average ADD reader of today. I think that Cahill does a good job in keeping ones attention in his book. What do you say?

    I can learn from Arminian just as long as I show discernment with their books and teachings. However I think it would be unwise to not invite one to my conference because of secondary disputes.

    No... But some will not invite him due to his issues with calvinism.

    Moving to the "Book" forum so we can deal with Mark's writing and not any personal issues

    I personally think his book "One Thing You Can't Do In Heaven." is one of the best books on evangelism I've read, from a "non-scholarly/academic" perspective that is. If you are capable of reading that book without immediately having zeal to preach the gospel you have issues (namely you need to be born again)!

    My reformed/Calvinist friends (which I recently joined the ranks of) give out his booklet "One Second After You...Die" after a good witnessing/Open-air encounter.

    For me, his adamant Amrinianism is less an issue than his KJVO. But he's zealous and certainly doing great things for evangelism.
