Recommended reading

I've just begun reading D.A. Carson's new book, "The God Who Is There -- Finding Your Place in God's Story" (Baker Books).

I agree with Tim Keller's recommendation: "A unique an important volume in many ways. As a ministry tool, it can be used for evangelism, since it so thoroughly lays out the doctrine of God. 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!"

Hey Erik, There are so many great books and resources available today, it makes me think of the principle, "To whom much is given, much will be required." That's a convicting word for us as American evangelicals.
