The holiness of God by R. C Sproul( Book )

28 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Central to God's character is the quality of holiness. Yet, even so, most people are hard-pressed to define what God's holiness precisely is. Many preachers today avoid the topic altogether because people today don't quite know what to do with words like "awe" or "fear." R.C. Sproul, in this classic work, puts the holiness of God in its proper and central place in the Christian life. He paints an awe-inspiring vision of God that encourages Christian to become holy just as God is holy. Once you encounter the holiness of God, your life will never be the same

It has been nearly forty years since the Supreme Court made abortion on demand legal in the United States, but the issue continues to divide Americans.

Faith alone : the evangelical doctrine of justification by R. C Sproul( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Saving faith justifies sinful humans before God, say the New Testament and historic Protestant teaching." "And justifying faith, a work of God's grace and individual merit, gives saving faith, adds the Roman Catholic Church." ""No." shout Martin Luther and his theological descendants. "Christians are justified by faith through God's mercy alone. To add our merit to God's grace destroys the gospel."" "R. C. Sproul solemnly warns Evangelicals to again hear that cry. Some Evangelical and Catholic leaders ignored the central issue of justification by faith in the document "Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the Third Millennium." That document is only one indicator, says Sproul, that Protestants are increasingly unaware of or unconcerned about this vital distinctive." "After decades of scurrilous caricatures and misinformation, Roman Catholics and Protestants are finally speaking to each other, and this is revealing a greater variety of viewpoints within both camps. It is also revealing (a) how little most Protestants know about their own convictions and (b) with what great ease they find the concerns raised by the Reformation to be simply irrelevant. How can this be? Has Rome's position changed? In fact is has not. The Vatican II documents as well as the new Catechism of the Catholic Church reinvoke the theological position of the Council of Trent, condemning the gospel of justification by an imputed righteousness. If it is not Rome that has altered its position in favor of the gospel, then it must be the other partner that has moved from its earlier position."--BOOK JACKET

9 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in English and Dutch and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Willing to Believe Sproul traces the free-will controversy from its formal beginning in the fifth century, when Augustine took up the pen against Pelagius, to the present. By the time you finish this historical tour, you will understand the nuances separating the views of Protestants and Catholics, Calvinists and Arminians, the Reformed and Dispensationalists. You will also have read key passages from the works of important writers on this subject: Pelagius, Augustine, Luther, Calvin, Arminius, Edwards, Finney, and others
The consequences of ideas : understanding the concepts that shaped our world by R. C Sproul( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2018 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The greater our familiarity with the ideas that have shaped our culture over the centuries, the greater our ability to understand--and influence--that culture for Christ. From the ancient Greek thinkers Plato and Aristotle to the Christian philosophers Augustine and Aquinas to the molders of modern thought such as Kant and Nietszche, R.C. Sproul traces the contours of Western philosophy throughout history and demonstrates the massive consequences these ideas have had on world events, theology, the arts, and culture--as well as in our everyday lives
Not a chance : the myth of chance in modern science and cosmology by R. C Sproul( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Announcing the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, the news reporter began: "Fifteen to 17 billion years ago the universe exploded into being." "Exploded into being?" mused R.C. Sproul. "Does this mean that 15 billion years ago the universe exploded from non-being into being? Then what exploded?" In Not a Chance Sproul takes a hard look at such conundrums: Just what is chance? Can it account for what is? As a respected Christian apologist, theologian, and philosopher, R.C. Sproul might be expected to find causation through chance a hard pill to swallow. But in Not a Chance we learn that he is not alone. Among others troubled by chance probability ... David Hume: "Chance is only our ignorance of real causes"; Charles Darwin: "I cannot look at the universe as a result of blind chance."; Albert Einstein: "Quantum physics is certainly imposing, but an inner voice tells me that it is not yet the real thing ... I, at any rate, am convinced that He is not playing at dice." In a lively dialog with modern thinkers from Hume to Niels Bohr and Carl Sagan, Not a Chance consults laws of logic, linguistic and scientific theory, and mathematical understandings to probe the cause-effect relationship. Not a Chance invites all students of life to approach, with eyes open and mind alert, the wobbly pedestal from which chance rules modern cosmology

Surprised by suffering by R. C Sproul( Book )

11 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

R.C. Sproul argues that we should not be surprised by suffering; instead, we should expect pain and sorrow in this life. Some are actually called to a "vocation" of suffering, and all of us are called to undergo the ultimate suffering of death. God promises in His Word that difficult times will come upon us, but He also promises that He allows suffering for our good and His glory, and He will never give us more than we can bear with His help. --from publisher description

Lifeviews : understanding the ideas that shape society today by R. C Sproul( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christians are called to be witnesses of Christ's Gospel and to be salt and light in a world filled with darkness and decay. Dr. R. C. Sproul expresses concern over our performance in this calling: "I doubt if there has been a period in all of Christian history where so many Christians are so ineffectual in shaping the culture in which they live as is true right now in the United States." In Lifeviews, Dr. Sproul helps us understand the ideas that shape our culture so that we may learn to respond with Christian ideals and values. In Part One, he examines the major philosophies that affect the way Americans think and act today, contrasting them with the Christian worldview. -- back of book cover

Pleasing God by R. C Sproul( Book )

14 editions published between 1988 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sometimes life feels like two steps forward, one step back. Sanctification is not an everyday word. In fact, it's an idea that has little value in our me-focused, instant-gratification world. Yet regardless of trends, culture, or opinion, being sanctified -- being set apart from the world -- remains a vital part of our journey with Christ. But what does this process look like? How do we begin? And is it even possible to live a life pleasing to God? Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul believes it's not only possible, it's our calling. Pleasing God delivers an in-depth look at God's plan and pathway for spiritual maturity. Clearing away the confusion of religion and dogma, Dr. Sproul reveals how every believer can experience authentic, lasting life change through a relationship with God. Rich in biblical insights, Pleasing God offers a practical guide for anyone longing to live a life that honors the Savior. - Back cover
Getting the Gospel right : the tie that binds evangelicals together by R. C Sproul( Book )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2017 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 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
