One of My Favourite Sermon Series: D.A. Carson, The God Who is There

I have to confess that one of the sermons series that I really enjoy listening to and reading over every now and then, is D.A. Carson’s series “The God Who is There” and the book that the sermons are based on The God Who Is There: Finding Your Place in God’s Story (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker, 2010). I’ve routinely listened to pieces of this series as I prepare lectures for an on-line course on Knowing God and the accompanying resources that go with it.

Thankfully all the sermons are available on-line here in audio with some video too. They are very evangelistic and are great for people who know nothing about religion, but are genuinely interested in learning about the biblical picture of God and what Christians actually believe about God. The talks also give a good overview of the biblical story in their own way (though on the Bible story-line, I would probably recommend either Vaughan Roberts’ The Big Picture: Tracing the Storyline of the Bible or Tim Chester’s From Creation to New Creation: Understanding the Bible Story).

The sermons are great advertisement for the fact that good biblical theology can be preached, both evangelistically and pastorally.
