Most widely held works by R. C Sproul
The holiness of God by R. C Sproul( Book )

28 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 492 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.

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
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 274 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 )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in English and German and held by 251 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

The consequences of ideas : understanding the concepts that shaped our world by R. C Sproul( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 241 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

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

8 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 222 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

Romans by R. C Sproul( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sproul's sermons at St. Andrew's Chapel are the foundation of these never-before-published expositions on Paul's epistle to the Romans. Chrysostom had it read aloud to him once a week. Augustine, Luther, and Wesley all came to assured faith through its impact. The Reformers saw it as the God-given key to understanding the whole of Scripture. Throughout church history the study of the book of Romans has been pivotal to understanding Christian life and doctrine. Convinced that Paul's fullest, grandest, most comprehensive statement of the gospel is just as vital today, R.C. Sproul delivered nearly sixty sermons on Romans from October 2005 to April 2007 at St. Andrew's Chapel, where he has pastored for more than a decade. These never-before-published, passage-by-passage expositions will enrich any study of this weighty epistle. Part of the St. Andrew's Expositional Commentaries series. & nbsp
