The Saving Word

The Gospel Coalition 2012 Clarus Regional Conference


In this 52-minute session, Don Carson, world-renowned New Testament scholar and author, and Research Professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, wrestles with the experiences of believers. Trials come, and often they debilitate us so thoroughly we wonder if we can go on. Don challenges us to cling to the promises and teaching of God’s word to endure through trials.

If we live long enough, we will all face difficult and sometimes terrible life experiences. The only thing that will preserve us through those times is the saving Word of God. Rest in the transformative power of Scripture, and, in the midst of trouble, cling to God.
