The God Who Is There The God Who Is There

Finding Your Place in Godís Story

by Carson, D.A.

Do you really know what the Bible is about? Many peopleóalso many Christians--do not have a basic working knowledge of the Bible. How can one understand the story of God--and our part in it--when one is not familiar with it? In this basic introduction to faith, the author takes his readers through the big story of Scripture to help them know what to believe and why they should believe. In addition to this volume, it is recommended to get the companion leader's guide to help evangelistic study groups, small groups, and Sunday school classes make the best use of this book in group settings. Endorsements "Don Carson's The God Who Is There is a unique and important volume in many ways. It is neither a traditional systematic theology nor a Bible survey. It unpacks the whole Biblical storyline through the lens of God's character and actions. As a ministry tool, it can be used for evangelism, since it so thoroughly lays out the doctrine of God, as Paul does on Mars Hill in Acts 17. And yet it also does what the catechisms of the Reformation churches did: give Christians a grounding in basic biblical beliefs and behavior. By all means, get this book!"--Tim Keller, pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City "If you've ever wanted to hear God's story, then this book is for you. If you've ever wanted to come face-to-face with the God who made, loves, and rescues you, then this book is for you. And if you've never picked up the Bible or wandered into a Christian church, then this book is especially for you."--Sam Chan, lecturer in theology, preaching, ethics, and evangelism, Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Australia "This may well prove to be one of the finest and most influential books D. A. Carson has written. A comprehensive apologia for the Christian faith, it is rooted in engaging exposition of major biblical texts, tracing the chronological story of God's gospel grace with rich theological insight. Skillfully related to the objections and issues raised by twenty-first-century culture, it will inspire and equip any Christian who desires to communicate Christ more effectively and can confidently be given to any inquirer seeking to discover the heart of biblical faith. It is the best book of its kind I have read for many years."--David J. Jackman, former president, Proclamation Trust, London, England
