Meet the Author

D A Carson

Dr Don (D. A.) Carson is currently Research Professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois. His areas of expertise include biblical theology, the historical Jesus, postmodernism, pluralism, Greek grammar, Johannine theology, Pauline theology, and questions of suffering and evil. Carson has written prolifically and profoundly on all these subjects.

Carson has written or edited 57 books - as well as numerous journal articles - ranging from New Testament commentaries to topical studies on the state of the contemporary church and its wider cultural context. His work is characterised by brilliant theological insight, thorough scholarship, and an uncompromising commitment to the essentials of Reformed doctrine.

Carson's landmark book, The Gagging of God: Christianity Confronts Pluralism won the 1997 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Gold Medallion Award. Other works that examine the interaction of church and culture include The Inclusive Language Debate (1998), Becoming Conversant With the Emerging Church (2005), Christ and Culture Revisited (2008) and The Intolerance of Tolerance (2012).

Carson's exegetical works include volumes on individual New Testament books in the Revised Expositor's Bible Commentary, Pillar New Testament Commentary, Baker Exegetical Commentary, and New International Greek Testament Commentary. In Exegetical Fallacies (1984, 1996, 2nd ed.), Carson is at his incisive best, analysing the root causes of errors in biblical interpretation. He has also notably edited the New Testament Commentary Survey up to its 7th edition (2013), as well as the Zondervan Study Bible (2015).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry. He went on to undertake a Master of Divinity with a Baptist seminary and earned his PhD in New Testament from Cambridge University in 1975, the same year he married his wife Joy. In 1978, Carson joined the faculty of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has worked ever since. In 2005 with Tim Keller, Carson founded The Gospel Coalition (TGC) - a network of Reformed churches dedicated to engaging and transforming the wider culture through speaking events, online advocacy, and publication. He continues to be an active guest lecturer in church and academic settings around the world.

Carson lives with his family in Liberty, Illinois. In his spare time he enjoys reading, hiking, and woodworking.

Customer Reviews For "For the Love of God (Vol 1)"

An excellent supplement to daily Scripture reading!
5 stars By Kevin, Dec 09 2014
When you mix Carson's exegetical knowledge, with his writing skills, you end up with one excellent book.
This book includes a wonderful reading plan (which has been used by many Christians for many generations), but it includes so much more than the reading plan.

Carson helpfully writes his observations for various (daily) passages, which is written to guide your "quiet time".

They are thoughtfully written and very accurate to the bible's meaning. I have been using this "quiet time" book every morning for a year and it has been simply excellent. He clearly demonstrates what it looks like to critique the world which we live in, through the lens of the Scriptures.

If you (like me) struggle with your quiet time, this is the perfect companion!  Very much recommended!!

Lacks self control.
3 stars By Matt, Jun 16 2014
For the most part the devotionals are good and thought provoking. However he has a habit of using terminology that is fairly uncommon with most lay people. He also has a tendency to dish out his own negative opinions regarding various church practices.
