Though the beginning of the story relies on old tropes (mentioning hymns and choirs) as a comparison to traditional churches, the author Molly Worthen does realize that Driscoll’s church is different than the megachurch “seeker sensitive” places of ten years ago.
The best statement:

“Driscoll’s New Calvinism underscores a curious fact: the doctrine of total human depravity has always had a funny way of emboldening, rather than humbling, its adherents.”
