Carson’s For the Love of God Blog

What is it?

For the Love of God is a daily devotional designed to walk a person through the Bible in a year while assisting the reader in discovering the riches of God’s Word. Originally published by Crossway Books (volume 1 in 1998 and volume 2 in 1999), this “blog” is really not a blog at all, but a free digital version of the devotional provided by TGC and Crossway. Our hope is that this daily devotional will deepen your understanding and appreciation of God’s Word—for the love of God.

These books are valuable not only for encouraging systematic Bible reading but for teaching people to understand how individual passages fit in the Bible’s storyline. And some preachers (e.g., Mark Dever) regularly reference them as a whole-Bible commentary.

We posted Carson’s daily devotionals from volume 1 in 2010, and we plan to post his daily devotionals from volume 2 each day in 2011.

We also host free PDFs of both volume 1 and volume 2.

Please pray for Don Carson as he currently writes volumes 3 and 4.

    I loved this… followed all year… will the volume II be posted on the same feed or do I need to update my RSS?

  • Andy Naselli

    Same RSS feed.

  • Kurt Holiday

    This is wonderful.
    My church is reading through Book One this year.
    Is there anyway to get the emails from Book One?

  • Andy Naselli

    Not this year, Kurt. Sorry.

    Having used these resources over the years, I would highly recommend using them for personal pastoral enrichment. The overview and interconnection of God’s words is very refreshing. Thanks to D.A. Carson and Crossway for making this available in this format.

    Will the RSS feed for Carson’s For the Love of God, Volume 1, be posted this year. I have not seen any update since January 31, 2011. Was excited about starting this plan this year, spreading M’Cheyne’s plan over 2 years. Downloaded the PDF but the feed will be a much easier format on my eyes for devotional reading as I use my phone for this.
    Thanks for sharing the resource regardless. Trust it to be a tremendous blessing in my life and ministry this year and next.
    God bless,
    Byron Vaughn

    I am currently reading volume 1. I have been carrying my book with me if I don’t get to read before leaving home in the morning. Now that I found these file you made available, I can access from work when I miss the time at home. Thanks so much for this! I plan to read volume 2 next year, and now that I see Carson is writing 3 & 4, it looks like I have my devotions for the next few years lined up. Again, thanks for this blessing!
