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 â€œThe God Who Is Thereâ€ at Bethlehem Baptist Churchâ€™s North Campus in Minneapolis. The series is geared toward â€œseekersâ€ and articulates Christianity in a way that causes hearers either to reject or embrace the gospel. Itâ€™s one thing to know the Bibleâ€™s storyline, but itâ€™s another to know oneâ€™s role in Godâ€™s ongoing story of redemption. â€œThe God Who Is Thereâ€ engages people at the worldview-level.
I’m only halfway through the firstÂ message, and it’s already a good challenge. Carson isÂ a theologian by training,Â but clearlyÂ reads widely as he’s quoting (philosophers, scientists, statistics)Â 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.
