Great Bible Study
It has been such a blessing to have this bible study to listen to while I work throughout the day. Carson does a great job of presenting the story of salvation history with enough detail to make it real, but not make it confusing. He also has people read from the bible during the class, so that even if you are listening without your bible at hand you can understand where the readings are coming from and recognize some of the passages.
Insightful, scholarly, engrossing-- this is a fascinating walk through the bible you thought you knew. Against a backdrop of careful scholarship and deep historical knowlege familiar stories take on a new luster and relevance. Brew up a cup of tea and get ready for a wonderful journey...
A Standing Ovation!
