We pray that as you hear Dr. Carson’s words you will learn what it means to truly be about the Gospel and to experience the transformation that inevitably accompanies it.” You can download or watch the video by going to the Resurgence Website.

Puritan Board Freshman

I'm guessing you haven't listened to all of these but would you happen to know which one of these lectures he discusses why he favors the premill view over the others? I have the Carson, Moo, and Morris Intro to the NT and they don't really deal with that issue.

Thanks again.
