Don Carson on biblical productivity, and surviving intellectual challenges to faith

Ligonier has posted a valuable little interview with Don Carson, with answers packed with biblical insight and practical wisdom. Especially interesting to think through what he has to say about preparing your children for life in university (or for those of us who work in student ministry to consider how these insights might impact the way we minister to young Christians):

Here’s an example: “The most dangerous seedbed for intellectual rebellion is a home where faith is sentimental and even anti-intellectual, and where opponents are painted as ignorant knaves, because eventually our children discover that there are some really nice people who are atheists and agnostics, and they can present arguments in sophisticated, gentle, and persuasive fashion.”
