Biography of D.A. Carson

Andreas Kostenberger has posted a biographical sketch of D.A. Carson of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School which is a very good read. I admire the productivity and sheer breadth of Carson's work in the New Testament as well as his pastoral focus too. (I often lay awake at night in fear that I'll be mentioned in the third edition of Exegetical Fallacies). He is also one of the few scholars who is just as good in person as he is in print which I've learnt from Carson's almost yearly visits to Australia. Best of all Carson is a good example of another Baptist Anglophile! Recently, D.A. Carson has written a biography of his father entitled: Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor: The Life and Reflections of Tom Carson which will be illuminating of Carson's own spiritual journey too no doubt.

Is this for a festschrift on the occasion of Carson's 75th birthday?
