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).

Donald Arthur Carson was born in Montreal, Canada, in 1946. His undergraduate degree majored in mathematics and chemistry.

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.

Customer Reviews For "NIV Zondervan Study Bible Full Colour Personal"Write Your Own Review
I am starting to study (that is formal study) the Bible, and being the first time that I actually do that I found in this Bible a great resource. It has nice graphs, illustrations; it offers great reviews and additional information. The fact that it also offers an online access is just great.
This book has helped me greatly in my bible study, as a person who has never really been taught how to study the Bible. My closest friend purchased this for me last year, for my birthday and it has been such a blessing. At first I wasn't sure what else it had to offer my study, as I was already using a Quest study Bible, but I have discovered that it adds to it very nicely. The information printed on the side of the pages, to show what verses are relevant to the one you are currently reading would have to be the best aspect of it. This additional help has opened up a way for me to study the Word in more depth. The only aspect I don't like is how heavy and cumbersome is can be, hardly what I would consider to be 'personal', but as I don't need to travel anywhere with it, it's not that big of an issue.
I was VERY excited that this new study bible finally arrived. Since the new NIV text arrived, the study bible has needed updating. Who better to lead the project than Carson? The result is the best and latest NIV translation with the best theological and scriptural minds providing notes. The result doesn't disappoint in terms of content. Outstanding. BUT - the font they have used is HORRIBLE (sorry I don't often shout but it is sooo disappointing). The layout is not easily readable. The stock (paper) they have used is too glossy (so therefore heavy). The whole thing is such a let down. I have gone back to my ESV study bible. Zondervan I cannot register my disappointment more highly. You would get zero stars if it were not for the brilliant work of Carson et al, and the excellence of the NIV (2011) text.
