Product Description

Non-believers are not the only ones today who know little about what God's Word has to say. Many professing Christians haven't even a basic understanding of the fundamental doctrines found in Scripture. How can we as believers then, understand our role in God's perfect plan if we are not familiar with the Bible? In this basic introduction to the faith, D.A. Carson takes new Christians, seekers, and small groups through Scripture to help them define what they believe, and why! Companion leader's guide sold separately (SKU 013737).

Publisher's Description

It can no longer be assumed that most people--or even most Christians--have a basic understanding of the Bible. Many don't know the difference between the Old and New Testament, and even the more well-known biblical figures are often misunderstood. It is getting harder to talk about Jesus accurately and compellingly because listeners have no proper context with which to understand God's story of redemption.

In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes seekers, new Christians, and small groups through the big story of Scripture. He helps readers to know what they believe and why they believe it. The companion leader's guide helps evangelistic study groups, small groups, and Sunday school classes make the best use of this book in group settings.

Author Bio

D. A. Carson (PhD, University of Cambridge) is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He is the author or editor of more than forty books and is one of the leaders of the Gospel Coalition.

    Carson's book is unique in at least two obvious ways: its table of contents (14 chapters all titled with the words The God Who...) and its recommendations: from Tim Keller to Francis Chan, from an Australian college lecturer to former president of England's Proclamation Trust.

    Baker Books are often big books. The God Who Is There is no exception. 224 pages packed full of print mean that this book demands effort before it gives enjoyment. Its stated purpose, however, exudes a uniqueness that stimulates a sustaining curiosity: "D. A. Carson takes you through the story of Scripture to help you know what you believe and why you believe it." (back cover)

    Carson's book is ultimately a book of nuggets...nuggets of golden truth. There is no escaping the fact that Carson is a skilled and knowledgeable writer. Carson's writing style is creative and captivating: he has an uncanny knack at uncovering the core hidden jewels at the heart of Scripture's greatest narratives and polishing them until the simplest eye can discern their value. Examples include his definition of the consequences of sin implied in chapter one: "I am fighting against myself as well as against the God who made me" (26); his insight into rebellion: "the tentacles of rebellion against God corrode all relationships" (38) and his penetrating analysis of the message of Scripture: "What the Bible most frequently says makes God angry is idolatry. This is evil's vertical dimension...You cannot make sense of the Bible until you come to agreement with what the Bible says our problem is." (41) The list goes on...the reader grows richer.

    Tim Keller urges, "By all means get this book." This reviewer says no less.

    D.A. Carson has done an excellent job of showing us the God who has revealed himself in the pages of Scripture. Although the book is targeted to seekers and new believers, I think it's a much-needed book for the average church member. So few Christians today know the storyline of the Bible or understand the consistency of God's nature throughout the Bible. Even for the biblically literate, it's an enjoyable read. I haven't read the Leader's Guide, but the book would make a great small group study.
