I’ve started listening to a free MP3 series called “The God Who Is There”:
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. 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.
I’m only halfway through the first message, and it’s already a good challenge. Carson is a theologian by training, but clearly reads widely as he’s quoting (philosophers, scientists, statistics) left, right and centre. This series seems to be pitched not just for Christians, but also for skeptics, atheists and anyone who’s interested in understanding the story of God.
Plus he’s got a very interesting accent!
You can find the whole series here.
