I thank God for this man.
As I say at the end of this essay,
I thank God for gracing me with gifts to the church like Carson. . . .
I am excited that Carson is only in his mid-sixties and that he is in good health. If Jesus does not return and Carson’s health continues, Carson will very likely equip the church with dozens of more books and articles. His magnum opus will be a two-volume ‘whole-Bible’ BT. He explained to me that he needs about twenty more years to do this well. He first desires to finish his commentaries on John’s letters, Galatians, Hebrews, Revelation, and Ezekiel. Carson is one of those exceptional figures who is equipped to contribute an outstanding integrative BT that would serve as a reliable foundation for ST that is more genre-sensitive and aware of the Bible’s storyline. (pp. 273–74)
I regularly pray that God would preserve his health and sustain and even increase his productivity.
