When a pastor goes to a conference to publicize their book, they get their book confiscated? Maybe.
The story starts with Mark Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in America taking a trip to The Strangefire Conference and tweeting:
Hey #StrangeFire friends – see u in 1hr. I’ll have free copies of my new book. The chapters on tribalism & Holy Spirit may be helpful.

Ok. Nothing particularly noteworthy about that, but… awhile later he then tweets…
Which prompts the following from Mike Riccardi, the local pastor at Grace Community Church in Los Angeles who seems to be at the Strange Fire conference posting the following on Facebook: Alright. So far this is looking like either a publicity stunt, a spat between two Christian organisations with different theology, or really bad communication? With that in mind Christianpost.com has found a tweet, that suggests this whole thing may just be a joke:

If it is a Joke… any idea what the punchline is?
If its some theological spat and the books were confiscated… whats going to happen to those books?
What would you do with a load of unwanted Christian books?
