D. A. Carson: The God Who is There—14 mp3 sessions

How do you explain the Bible's storyline to a biblically illiterate person? Carson argues that decades ago the church had to win "Christian atheists"—that is, even people who denied the existence of God had a heritage of Christian information. Today, Carson argues that people are without such a heritage and must be taught even the basic ideas that others took for granted years ago.

Carson wrote a book, The God Who is There, to answer that need. In addition, he recorded 14 mp3 sessions that can be heard for free. I have just finished session one so I may come across things later that I, a Wesleyan, would explain differently than Carson, a Calvinist. However, he is a careful scholar who deserves a hearing.
