Recommended & in the Knox Library: The God Who is There: finding your place in God’s story” by D. A. Carson

God ThereMost people–even most Christians–do not have a basic working knowledge of the Bible. How can we understand the story of God–and our part in it–when we’re not familiar with it? In this basic introduction to faith, D. A. Carson takes you through the big story of Scripture to help you know what you believe and why you believe it. Make sure 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.

We live in a time when people quickly reject or accept the Bible without even knowing its contents. Carson does a masterful job of explaining the Scriptures so that a person who has never even opened the Bible can understand it. At the same time, those who grew up under its teaching will find valuable and obvious truths that will lead them to greater worship and appreciation of the God we serve. – Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love
