The God Who is There — D A Carson

This book is for everyone!!!! I want to encourage all Life University leaders to get a copy. D.A. Carson  gave a 14 part lecture on his book, “The God Who Is There” last year. I am on lecture # 7. I have to say, this is by far the best description on the Word of God I have ever heard. It walks you through section by section hitting the major themes of the Bible. You can get the lectures on mp3 cd format for free! Check it out here. You won’t want to pass this up. You can also buy the book that comes with the cd.

From The Gospel Coalition blog: On February 20-21 and 27-28, 2009, Don Carson presented a 14-part seminar entitled “The God Who Is There” at Bethlehem Baptist Church’s North Campus in Minneapolis. This series will serve the church well because it simultaneously evangelizes non-Christians and edifies Christians by explaining the Bible’s storyline in a non-reductionistic way.

The series is geared toward “seekers” and articulates Christianity in a way that causes hearers either to reject or embrace the gospel. It’s one thing to know the Bible’s storyline, but it’s another to know one’s role in God’s ongoing story of redemption. “The God Who Is There” engages people at the worldview-level.
