R. C. Sproul
Dr. R. C. Sproul once wrote something to the effect
that if they would reprint all the old classic works
of the Christian faith and the works of the Puritans
he would quit writing books. Since that time many of
the classics of the faith as well as many of the
Puritans writings have been reprinted and continue to
be reprinted or republished. I am thankful for that.
But I sure am happy that R. C. is still writing
books! We need a great theologian for our day, too.
Sproul has the gift of taking lofty theological
concepts and putting them into language a layman can
understand, adding in some personal experiences to
illustrate their application to our lives and all the
while giving the book a devotional quality, too!
I've put together a list of some of his best
works here and added several links at the bottom of
the page where you can read some of his shorter
articles online. Enjoy!
The Latest from R. C. Spoul:
These three books, The Holiness Of God,
The Glory Of Christ, and The
Mystery Of The Holy Spirit are what I call
Sproul's Trilogy on the Trinity. The
Holiness of God: This book will bring you
face to face with God in all His awesome Holiness. It
may have you trembling in dread and fear, saying with
Isaiah the prophet, "...Woe is me! for I am undone;
because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in
the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes
have seen the King, the LORD of hosts." (Isaiah 6:5)
And that's a good thing because the fear of the
LORD is the beginning of wisdom! The Glory of
Christ: Examines the life, Person and Deity
of Jesus Christ in all His Glory. You'll gain a
deeper understanding of many key events such as the
Transfiguration, His triumphal entry in to Jerusalem,
the Cross, the Resurrection, the Ascension and more.
The Mystery Of The Holy Spirit: Many
believers these days way over-emphasize certain gifts
of the Spirit, others, perhaps in reaction to
charismania, underemphasize the Third Person of the
Trinity Himself. Sproul draws both sides back to a
balanced doctrine of the Spirit. Read
one...you'll want to read them all.
The Priest With Dirty
Clothes: A Timeless Story of God's Love and
Forgiveness. R. C. teams up with Liz Bonham to offer an allegorical story for kids
based upon the story of Joshua the High Priest in the
book of Zechariah. A priest who is on the way to
speak before the king has an accident and gets his
clothes dirty. He can't appear before the king
in that condition. Enter the Prince who gives the
ultimate gift to him....his own clothes! There is
also a dual story here where two children get dirty
and their grandfather takes the opportunity to tell
them about Jesus and how He cleans their hearts and
covers their sins. For kids age 9 to 90+.
Here's a book for teens that will help them to
look at life's "ultimate issues" through a
Christian worldview giving them a firm foundation in
the midst of the storm in the sea of ideas popular
Saved From What Are you saved? Saved from what? God. That's "What"! God is Holy and He hates sin. Christ saves us from the wrath of God. Sproul explains why God sent an innocent Man to die for the guilty. Man cannot understand God's Grace in Salvation without understanding God's Holiness.
The Soul's Quest For God
Christ Jesus has promised that all who seek Him will
find Him. This book is about the seeking, the finding
and the using of the means of grace that God has
provided for us to grow ever closer to Him.
Chosen By God A straight forward, well-reasoned, Biblical presentation of the Reformed Doctrine of Election. Sproul convincingly argues the Calvinist position while treating Arminians with respect and Christian love.
Knowing Scripture One of Sproul's earliest books (1977) but one of his most important! He wrote it early in his career, hoping to encourage Christians to dedicate themselves to a systematic study of the Scriptures. This is a great guide for the layman! Sproul gives us 10 rules for Biblical Interpretation and explains each one in detail. Check it out!
Here Dr. Sproul expounds over 100 doctrines of the
Christian Faith in language laymen can understand!
Almighty Over All
Understand God's Sovereignty. God is always in
control. Any doctrine that puts man in control
instead is false. Sovereignty is key!
Mighty Christ - Touching Glory answers the all important question
that Jesus asked His disciples, "Who do you say that
I AM?". This little book covers the life, Person and
Work of Christ by giving you a deeper understanding
of the meaning of all the titles of Christ...Son of
Man, Bishop of our souls, Messiah, Lord, etc. Very
Grace Unknown A
very clear exposition of the Reformed Faith.
Pleasing God Here
Sproul covers Sanctification. Another good one!
