What Is Reformed Theology?
What do the five points of Calvinism really mean?
There are a lot of misconceptions in popular culture and the church regarding Reformed theology. Some references to it are positive, some negative. It’s time for a full, understandable explanation of what it really is and why it matters.
What Is Reformed Theology? is an accessible introduction to a set of beliefs and concepts that have been immensely influential in the evangelical church. In this insightful book, R. C. Sproul walks you through the foundations of the Reformed doctrine and explains how the Reformed belief is centered on God, based on God’s Word, and committed to faith in Jesus Christ. Sproul explains the five points of Reformed theology and makes plain the reality of God’s amazing grace.
What We Believe
To be a Christian is to be one who believes. But believes in what? In an age of cafeteria-style religion--a little bit of this, a little bit of that--believers new and old may be overlooking the basic tenets of faith in favor of modern trends that have no biblical basis.
For millennia, Christians have affirmed the Apostles' Creed because it summarizes the tenets of Christian belief, boldly declaring that there is uncompromising truth that is foundational to life. In this book, renowned theologian R. C. Sproul presents the creed statement by statement, unpacking what it means to believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, and what Christians believe about the church, salvation, and eternal life.
The Last Days According to Jesus
Speculation and theories concerning what the last days have in store for us abound. In the hype of sensational books and movies, one important question is often obscured:
What did Jesus believe and teach about the end times and the timing of his return?
In his characteristically precise and compelling style, renowned theologian R.C. Sproul points us to the words of Christ as providing solid, biblical footing amid ever-shifting opinions about the age to come. He covers key questions, such as:
· What exactly did Jesus teach about the last days on Mount Olivet?
· What generation will witness the end?
· What did Paul teach in his letters?
· What did John teach in Revelation?
· When is the resurrection?
· When is the millennium?
In addition to answering these important questions about the last days, Dr. Sproul presents an authoritative explanation of biblical teaching about the end times and the timing of Christ's return.
Not A Chance
Can chance truly be responsible for all that is?
Despite claiming unbelief in God or any higher power that may have designed or created the world, modern scientists often write and speak of chance as some kind of being or force that can actually cause things to happen. They have excluded any designer but filled in the resultant void with faulty reasoning.
In this classic book, R. C. Sproul and Keith Mathison call the scientific world to employ logic and clarity in their discourse, to leave the word chance as an abstract concept to describe mathematical possibilities rather than an ontological entity that can cause change. Dallas Willard praised Not a Chance as "Sproul at his best, which is very good. He shows secularism to be what it now is: a desperate faith." This expanded edition includes a new chapter dealing with the most recent attempts to defend irrational scientific statements. A new appendix reviews other literature on scientific discoveries that support belief in a Creator God.
Making A Difference
The world needs your faithful influence
We live in a complex world, and confrontations between competing worldviews and value systems are common. The great challenge for the Christian is how to impact this fallen world with our faith. To have the greatest influence on someone who doesn't share our belief system, we have to start with knowing what they believe, why they believe it, and how that belief affects their attitudes, behaviors, and choices.
In Making a Difference, beloved theologian R. C. Sproul shows you how to confront today's moral and social issues with an effective biblical response. Dr. Sproul first examines the major philosophies that affect the way we think and act--secularism, existentialism, humanism, and pragmatism--and then presents ideas on how to apply a biblical perspective to spheres of public life that need your faithful influence today: economics, science, art and literature, and government.
If you long to make a real and lasting difference in your family, friend group, workplace, and community, this book will show you how.
What must you do to be right with God?
The Reformers broke with the Roman Catholic Church when they insisted that people are justified by faith alone. Today, many Protestants fail to grasp that keystone of faith, and yet the biblical, Reformation view of the doctrine of justification is vital for us to grasp the power of the gospel and proclaim it far and wide. In Faith Alone, R. C. Sproul clearly explains the doctrine of salvation, including why Protestantism and Roman Catholicism split over justification in the first place and why that division remains an uncrossed chasm.
Getting The Gospel Right
Unity in the gospel is essential to the witness of the church. Yet that unity was tested by the release of two documents, Evangelicals and Catholics Together and The Gift of Salvation, which appeared to surrender the historic doctrine of sola fide (faith alone). In response, Christian leaders released a statement called The Gospel of Jesus Christ: An Evangelical Celebration.
Getting the Gospel Right, a companion to R. C. Sproul's popular Faith Alone, contains the complete text of that statement, along with thorough, point-by-point discussion and exposition, to make a strong declaration of the abiding unity of evangelicals regarding the gospel and justification by faith alone.
Unity in the gospel touches the soul of the church itself and all of its members. After all, "to be faithful to the Great Commission," R. C. Sproul explains, "we must get the gospel right."
Willing To Believe
Can a person choose to have faith?
What does an individual contribute to his or her own salvation? Does God wait on the doorsteps of our hearts, quietly hoping to be let in when we decide to open the door? Or does he call us and pursue us in a way we can't resist? The debate between the irresistible call of God and a human being's free will has raged for centuries. So what is the answer? And why does it matter?
In Willing to Believe, R. C. Sproul uncovers issues that provoked the Reformation and revived the controversy between Pelagius and Augustine. He carefully explores the relationship between original sin and human free will, clarifies misconceptions about the work of God in a believer's liberation from sin, illuminates the work of the Holy Spirit in salvation, and offers compelling reasons to believe the work of salvation is in God's hands.
Discover the magnificence of the character of God
Confused, angry, and hurt after the death of his father, a young R. C. Sproul began his personal search for ultimate truth with these piercing questions: Who are you, God? And why do you do the things you do?
In Enjoying God, you'll journey with R. C. Sproul to discover the nature of God through his marvelous and often surprising attributes. In this warm, personal account, Dr. Sproul communicates deep wisdom of God as he shares his earnest, lifelong passion to know God and the profound hope he ultimately found in the attributes of God. He encourages each one of us to dig deep and seek the God who is alive, who is real, and who is love.
