D. A. Carson Audio sermons and lectures – Free MP3’s from around the Web

Note: SECTION 2, #115 was added on 5/18/10.
D. A. Carson is one of my favorite preachers. I listen to him for his depth, his piercing application, his good exegesis, his biblical theological connections, and his centrality on Christ and the gospel. He has written many articles and books that I’ve found edifying and informative. This picture was taken at the time Don Carson visited Torrance, CA in January 2007.

You can get all D.A. Carson audio that is available on the web at The Gospel Coalition website. The reason I’ll keep updating this page is because the way it is categorized there is topical and textual, not by the occasion where he spoke it.  It is hard to find certain series to listen to as a series, so I’ll continue to post them here as the series in which they are given.

The site “Shall We Sing for You” is where there are many of the mp3 downloads that I got for this post (numbers 25-39).

You can also find sermons by Don Carson at Andy Naselli’s blog that came out two months after this post. I think I have all of them listed but it may be updated so check it out. Please use it to get more. He also lists the MP3’s for sale from Christwaymedia.com.

Monergism.com, an excellent site, also has Carson MP3 listings. I think I have all of these but it may be updated.

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.

98.  Preaching through Bible Books –  This is from a conference in 2003 called, “Katoomba Christian Conference Centenary (Sydney, Australia).”  D.A. Carson lectured on 12 points in preaching through a book of the Bible.  You can listen to the audio by downloading the message here (left-click).  This is taken from The Gospel Coalition website.

(These points assume you’ve already picked the book, though that is an important consideration in how to pick that. No particular order of importance among some of these 12 points.)

  1. (1:38 ) – Read and re-read and re-read and re-read and re-read the book. – It’s a mistake to read the book once and then start reading commentaries (Read it in English and the original language).
  2. (3:11) – Ideally start the process early. Give time to re-reading, meditation, and saturation.
  3. (4:58 ) – Eschew the division of head and heart.
  4. (6:14) – Early on attain sufficient grasp of the book that you can succinctly state (a) what the book is about, (b) what this book contributes to the canon that overlaps with what other books bring to the canon, and (c) what distinctive things this book brings to the canon. (All these things need to be thought about simultaneously. This is what brings clarity and precision). Scan biblical theologies on the book to get a large scale picture of the book.
  5. (11:10) – At roughly the same time determine (a) the number of sermons you’ll devote to the book and (b) the large scale outline of the book insofar as it impinges on your text boundaries for each sermon (11:10).
  6. (19:27) – Start working on individual sermon preparation (either in advance or week by week). Ideally work on the text first.  A. (23:26) – Ideally develop note taking techniques. This keeps your tools sharp and keeps your files for resources for future ministry (writing, preaching, evangelism, etc.);  B. (29:32) – from these detailed exegetical notes (Note for young preachers: you must determine and discipline yourself to leave stuff out). You need to know what to leave out. The sermon is the best of the material and the highlights of what you learned. The aim is to think through what contributes to the burden of that text; C. Work on the text’s structure. Work on it so that it is fresh and appealing and helpful.
  7. (32:27) – Each sermon must simultaneously stand alone and constitute a part of the series.
  8. (33:34) – Remember the different contributions of a Paul House (corpus/book) biblical theology and a Charles Scobie (thematic) biblical theology.
  9. (38:11) – Recognize that there may be special study and focus necessary for certain books (historical, cultural, literary genre, etc).
  10. (42:32) – Ideally try to make your sermon material reflect in some way the genre of the book you are treating.
  11. (44:24) – Remember constantly that this is not an exercise in artistic creation. The sermon is not an end in itself, but it is a re-revelation of God to his people. This means that as you prepare you ought to be thinking about the people to whom you are ministering.
  12. (50:28 ) – ideally keep revising, praying, preparing so that it is not so much that you have mastered the material as that it has mastered you. There is a way of preaching that projects an image of being an expert and an image of being captured by the text.

  1. caleb says:

    Thank you, PJ

    I just had an idea that we could get all of our sermons together and put them up on a website then we could just refer people to that website…but maybe there would be copyright issues.

  2. Daryl says:


    Just found your blog and links for Carson. Thank you so much for bringing this together – these links are fantastic, and very edifying.

    I’m in Pastoral work in New Zealand, but currently in Quito Ecuador for a year, and so am totally enjoying listening to Carson.

    Bless you PJ,

    Just wanted to point out a lecture Dr. Carson gave at Capitol Hill Baptist Church on Just War theory.

  10. Chris Oldham says:

    Hi PJ,

    Just to let you know that the links to Carson’s critiques of the New Perspective on Paul (no.17 in your list) do not seem to work any more. I can’t find these lectures elsewhere on the web…at least not so I can access them: They are posted at http://woodchipsandmusings.blogspot.com/ but it requires a google account and password to access it. Don’t know if you can work around that one! Do you know anyone who can invite you to open a google account? I’d love to hear these lectures.

    Thank you for making these messages available. However, I have not been able to download any of the messages under numbers 17 (3 parts) or 47 (Veritas Forum: 2 messages). Also one can access some of Don Carson’s messages on the person of Christ @ fbccincy.org, resources, 2007 Conference–however these last are repeats of what you already have posted. Thanks again.

  15. pjtibayan says:

    Newton, I fixed #47 but number 17 is not working unless you are invited by that blogger to his site. I’m sorry that I can’t help with that one, I’m not able to access the site myself.

    Thanks for this site. Do you provide these talks in MP3 version on CD? I’ve given away my casette player. If so, how much for them please. It is hard to find this level of theological thought around much.

    I have just discovered this website and have been thrilled and blessed to be able to listen to his sermons. He is a great man of God. I have been trying to purchase his audio material, but just did not have the means. So you can understand my appreciation. I am a Pastor in South Africa in a little town called Buccleuch. I have visited both of His conferences here in South Africa. Thank you and God bless for the good work.

    This is great… thank you very much. Much appreciated!

  39. jatfla says:

    Oh!! This is Great!! I feel like I’ve landed in Bible Teaching heaven. I first became familiar with Dr. Carson in my set of Expositors Bible Commentary and I just happened to chose his Matthew commentary to use for personal study. Now a place to listen to his lectures??!!

    Thank You.

  40. dsudfeld says:

    Great stuff! Thank you!
    Just one question. I just listened to #70 and it cuts off before Carson gets to the third point of that sermon. Is there some place to which you can point me, to get the message in its entirety?

  41. pjtibayan says:


    You can check out this link: http://resources.christianity.com/series/cm/816.aspx

    It’s the 4th sermon in this series, but it costs $1.50 to download. I’ve heard it and it is good, and the message is complete.

    Great site! All three of #5 no longer exist, which is a cruel tease.

  48. Michael says:

    This is an awesome site and I’m so glad to have found my way here. I do have a question though if anyone is able to answer for me. The lectures listed as #25, are these the lectures given at Cedarville University? I haven’t listened to them all the way through yet and have yet to hear a reference to the location. I’ve been searching for those particular lectures for some time now and I’m hoping these are the ones. If not, I would guess that they are just as good. Thanks a lot.

  67. Vincent Klug says:

    We preach nearly every week… We read our Bibles (hopefully). And yes, Pastors of all people, need to be “self feeders”.
    However, part of our feeding should include sermons from this man.

    Thank you for helping us keep well fed.

  70. ED... says:

    Many thanks for these. I’ve recently downloaded the Resurgence talk on Revelation 12 by Dr Carson. It’s available on the iTunes podcast. I didn’t notice it mentioned above (I spotted the first talk – on Romans 3 – up there!). Apologies if it is!

    Kind regards,


  71. david says:

    Carson’s audio is now published on thegospelcoalition.org site’s resources section about him. There’re about 400 audio sermons.

  72. jugulum says:


    At the top of the page, you link to Andrew Naselli’s collection of mp3s. He recently updated his entry to say that he has created a massive collection, hosted at The Gospel Coalition. This includes all of the mp3s that used to be for sale at Christway Media–now for free! There are 443 mp3s so far.

    Here’s the announcement, and here’s the direct link to the archive.

  73. Don Carson is one of the greatest ministers of our time, a true pastor and should be a excellent example for all who aspire to be theologians in God’s wisdom, mercy and strength. He is the best example of someone who is able to teach theology in a university as well as be a pastor at the same time. I thank God for you Don. The Lord make His Glorious Face shine upon you.

  74. Dane says:

    Thanks for this comprehensive resource of Carson’s. He is one of my most respected theologians.

  77. C.D. Smith says:

    Carson is Clear, Bold and Transparent. His Passion is evident and His fruit is plentiful. He has enriched my mind, body and soul with His obedience to Gods Word. Praise be to Christ for this man. Thank you Lord for your faithfulness to your Bride and esteblishing great leaders such as D.A. Carson.

  78. David McKay says:

    Thanks for updating this useful list.
    Been listening to Don Carson’s talks recently. I found the talk on Doubting Thomas very helpful. The categories of why people doubt was very thought-provoking.

  79. Don Carson spoke at the 2006 Irish Preachers Conference. Here is the audio:


  80. Gavin says:

    Am looking for any conference CArson may be speaking at. Aust prefered. any idea wher i can locate an Intinerary of his confereces for 2010?? Thanks.

  81. Paul says:

    This isa brilliant reference. Appreciate the effort int he categorization. Makes it much easier to find series links than searching thru the Gospel Coalition.

  82. Ian Copland says:

    Hi friends in Christ, has Don preached or written anything on the topic of Death: Cremation or Burial? Cheers in Christ, Ian

  83. theologianz says:

    Thank you PJ for these wonderful posts. – theologianz

  84. Gerald Hsu says:

    Dr. Carson gave a lecture on “Partakers
    of Age to Come
    ” to PCRT conference in Sacramento on March 7 2010.
    Another lecture that he gave while he was in Northern California was “My
    Lord and My God”
    given to Soaring Oak Presbyterian Church on March
    4 2010.

  85. Nathan says:

    Thanks for posting all of these lectres – he’s a great speaker and teacher. The only jab I would make is that Carson seems to really LIKE the fact that he knows multiple languages…. Was the French/German/Dutch/Coptic really necessary there Don? 😉

  86. luke gorsett says:

    Great site. Here is a link to two conferences Carson did at Omaha bible church
    One is on suffering the other is on evangelism.
