    "Reformed Theology by the Grand Father."
    What did you love best about Foundations?

    RC Sproul is a very good teacher. He has a way of explaining complex theological issues in a simple way. This book would be the Equivalent to the good Bible College or Seminary overview of Reformed Theology.

    "Reformed Theology"

    This series of lectures about systematic theology presents the main questions of the field with the assumptions of reformed theology. R. C. Sproul gives a clear exposition of the differents themes, giving the reader a path to immerse in the treasury of God's Word.

    "A Clear Crisp presentation on Christian Theology"

    Love the book. RC Sproul is a very clear thinker, you couldn't ask for a better reader or in this case speaker. The only disagreement I have with him is his view on the rapture. He doesn't believe in it. Highly recommended.

    It took me way too long in life to realize how much more enjoyable it is to be read to than reading for yourself.

    "Wonderful Introduction to Systematic Theology"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Foundations to be better than the print version?

    I prefer the version better than the print version that was based off these lectures, "Everyone's a Theologian" because I thoroughly enjoy RC Sproul's ability to engage his audience as an orator.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hands down, my favorite part of these lectures is Sproul's abilities to make sense for the lay person when discussing deep theological concepts.


    Have you listened to any of R. C. Sproul’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm a subscriber to Ligonier Connect and am very familiar with all of RC Sproul's lectures. "Foundations" is one of my most favorite because it is a wonderful introduction to Systematic Theology, a subject that, sadly, too many Christians know nothing nor care to know anything about.

    Story
    "a classic!"

    I love R.C. Sproul (wish he were my grandpa) and I love all that he teaches. His doctrine is solid.... with the exception of chapter 6. on inerrancy of the Bible. He seems to want to avoid "circularity", which is understandable but inescapable as a Christian. He has to join that label (along with myself) along with any Christian that wants to be faithful. Starting with Jesus as "a good man" or "a basically reliable bible" is weak. R.C. starts with Jesus but only as sort kinda reliable and progresses from there to reliable / and besides starting with Jesus is starting with the Bible. The Bible is the word of God and can't be associated with the words "basically reliable". As a Calvinist it's hard to listen to chapter 6. Christian epistemology is pretty much shot and weakened by not proclaiming it as God sees it in full. The natural man will Absolutly disagree, so what, it's expected and that's why we develop avenues toward meaningful discussion and reason. And There are other ways to disguise circularity but that would take a whole book to discuss such an issue and not to be left on a review. truth is truth. Anyhow I love his teaching on eschatology and everything else. I recommend this to all Christians that wish to sharpen their theology.

    "Excellent devotion!"

    I truly appreciate how Dr Sproul took the time to learn and devote energy for our edification. I've listened to multiple chapters more than once. It has increased my understanding and knowledge of God's word so I can teach others. Thanks Dr Sproul!

    Story
    "Amazing Course"
    What did you like most about Foundations?

    This is essentially like doing a Systematic Theology course with R.C. Sproul who is an excellent teacher and theologian. I have read several of his books before and really enjoyed them, but this audiobook himself is like studying under the great man. The lessons are split into roughly 20 minute lectures / chapters and I have been doing one a day as part of my commute.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Foundations?

    The section on predestination really helped me to understand the idea better. What is does and doesn't mean.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    It is hard to pick out stand-alone sections as being more enjoyable. I enjoyed better understanding the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    You would need a brain bigger than I to digest this all in one sitting. Each 20 minute lesson is more than enough to be thinking about. I have also picked certain chapters to play at my house group.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are a Christian and want to grow in your understanding then I don't think there are many better ways to get deep understanding in an accessible way than this book. I would encourage you to check it out.
