"Reformed Theology by the Grand Father."
No person in history has provoked such widely divergent assessments as Jesus of Nazareth. Some say He was a cunning fraud, while others say He must have been out of His mind. In many cases His story is altered to suit the fancies of those seeking to make Him an ally for a host of militant causes. However, as Dr. R. C. Sproul points out in this Crucial Questions audiobook, there is compelling evidence that Jesus was something more - that He was, in fact, God in the flesh.
When Jesus explained the necessity of the new birth, the Jewish leader Nicodemus asked in astonishment, "How can these things be?" Some two thousand years later, much confusion still surrounds the term "born again", though more people than ever claim to have had the experience. In this Crucial Questions audiobook, Dr. R.C. Sproul cuts through the confusion and carefully explains what it means, biblically and theologically, to be born again.
As a gifted communicator, R.C. Sproul has helped many believers grow in their understanding of such matters as the nature of God, the history of redemption, and the manner in which we are saved. Now, Dr. Sproul's lucid teaching on these vital matters is available in a series of concise audiobooks that are perfect for personal learning and refreshing as well as small-group study.
Dr. Sproul surveys the history of apologetics and demonstrates that reason and science are your allies in defending the existence of God and the historical truth claims of Jesus Christ.
"Good, but a bit too theoretical than practical."
The word "faith" is heard often these days, but it is given many different meanings. Sometimes it is used in the sense of trust. Other times, it has more to do with hope. Perhaps most often, it is used to mean belief in something apart from rational or empirical support. Because faith is central to the Christian life, believers must have a clear understanding of how the Bible defines the word and the concept.
In this expanded edition of his classic series The Holiness of God, Dr. R.C. Sproul provides a comprehensive, biblical survey of God’s holy character and demonstrates how the demands of His holiness are met in Christ.
"Experiencing the holiness of God"
In this Crucial Questions audiobook, Dr. R.C. Sproul carefully explains the doctrine of the Trinity, stressing that Christians worship one God who manifests Himself in three distinct persons. He shows what the Bible teaches and outlines the chief errors on this doctrine that have afflicted the church. Above all, he affirms that while this truth is difficult to understand, it is not contradictory. Rather, it is a beautiful expression of the biblical teaching on the nature of God.
"A great resource to start my journey in"
Most people today believe that we live in a closed, mechanistic universe, that is, a universe that functions from day to day according to certain physical forces and causes. Classical Christianity has taken a very different view, teaching that God is the primary cause of the universe, but also that He is the primary cause of everything in the universe and of everything that happens in the universe and in short, that God, not mechanistic forces, is the primary cause of what is and what happens.
In this interview, Dr. R.C. Sproul and Abdul Saleeb discuss the differences between Islam and Christianity. As Saleeb exposes the true teachings of Islam, he explains why fundamentalist Muslims are so aggressive in their attempt to wipe out all other religions. This interview is especially helpful for those who are witnessing to Muslims in their communities.
"Great Resource! "
Baptism is taught in the Bible and has been practiced for centuries, but understanding of its meaning and respect for its importance is at a low ebb today. Confusion reigns over questions about its mode and its place in the life of the Christian, and as a result, even many evangelical congregations are downplaying its significance. This is not the way it should be, Dr. R.C. Sproul declares in this Crucial Questions audiobook.
The Evangelical Church is deeply confused over the sacrament of the Lord's supper, with many believers unclear as to what happens at the Lord's table. In some churches it is practiced infrequently or irreverently. In this audiobook Dr. R. C. Sproul cuts through the confusion to define the supper, demonstrate what it means, and show how important it is for the lives of believers and churches.
Most Christians understand the importance of Christ’s atoning sacrifice and the significance of his resurrection. But how many comprehend the significance of the life Jesus led prior to the crowning weeks of the passion? In this teaching series, R.C. Sproul uncovers what it means for Christ to be the "second Adam" - and what this means for believers today.
"Great lessons from a great teacher"
Christians want to do the right thing. But it can be tough to know what the right thing is. Plus, it's not just the big questions with which we must wrestle ethical dilemmas confront us each day in every aspect of life. On what basis do we make all of these decisions? In this Crucial Questions audiobook, Dr. R. C. Sproul argues that the Bible is the supreme source for ethical guidance. That doesn't mean it contains a Thou shalt... or a Thou shalt not... for every conceivable situation, but it does provide ethical principles.
Many people in the church today are plagued by doubts about their salvation. Satan whispers that it is impossible that sinners such as they could be in a state of grace, and some churches compound the problem by teaching that it is possible for believers to lose their salvation. But assurance of salvation is possible in this life. Indeed, as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues in this Crucial Questions audiobook, it is the duty of Christians to make their calling sure (2 Peter 2:10).
Christians speak of "being saved", but all too often don't follow the phrase to its logical reply: "Saved from what?" How do we answer this question when we share the gospel with others? Far from being a matter of semantics, the issue holds critical importance for believers and non-believers alike. Is it really sufficient to say that we are saved from our sins? R. C. Sproul uses Scripture to show that the question, in its most important sense, should be phrased, "Saved from whom?" The answer: God himself.
"TOWERING INTELLECT ON SALVATION !"
Faith alone is the foundational answer to the question, "What must I do to be saved?" The doctrine of justification by faith alone is at the center of Reformation theology, and remains critical for all believers today. This doctrine is continually under assault, yet without it, there is no gospel. In this lecture series, Dr. Sproul explores the doctrine of justification historically and theologically. He carefully defines each term in the phrase "justification by faith alone", while pointing to the imputation of a perfect righteousness found only in Jesus Christ.
"Another great book from Sproul"
We live in a culture that more and more questions authority, truth claims, and traditional beliefs. So what are we to believe about the authority and trustworthiness of a book that is thousands of years old? Is God's word truly inerrant? How is it different from other religious texts? Why should we trust its claims?
"Great presentation on the bible"
A lifelong pursuit of knowing God should embody the Christian's existence. According to eminent theologian J.I. Packer, however, Christians have become enchanted by modern skepticism and have joined the "gigantic conspiracy of misdirection" by failing to put first things first. Knowing God aims to redirect our attention to the simple, deep truth that to know God is to love His Word.
"Excellent Theology -- I have minor disagreements"
Sproul's survey of the ongoing impact of history's most influential philosophies urges listeners to take prevailing cultural mind-sets seriously...because ideas do have consequences. The greatest thinkers of all time are impacting us still. From public-policy decisions and current laws to world events, theology, the arts, education, and even conversations between friends, history's most influential philosophies have wrought massive consequences on nearly everything we see, think, and do.
"A Clear Explanation of Fundamental Philosophy"
Dr. R.C. Sproul seeks to challenge many of the modern myths regarding these other-worldly beings by offering a Biblical view of the spiritual realm.
"This is awesome"
"If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?" And what of the suffering of animals, who neither deserve pain nor can be improved by it? The greatest Christian thinker of our time sets out to disentangle this knotty issue. With his signature wealth of compassion and insight, C. S. Lewis offers answers to these crucial questions and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature.
"Deep, real answers for the existence of pain"
In discussing the differences between Christian and Islamic theology, Dr. Sproul and Saleeb examine views on God, Christ, Scripture, salvation, and man, and they explain why orthodox Christian theology is fundamentally distinct on every point.
With more than 315,000 print copies sold, this is the story of the church for today’s listeners. Dr. Bruce Shelley makes church history come alive in this classic audiobook that has become not only the first choice of many laypeople and church leaders but the standard text in many college classrooms.
"In depth and fascinating"
A new book from the respected theologian R.C. Sproul. A study of the events in the life of Jesus Christ and what they mean to your life.
