On December 14, 2017, Dr. R.C. Sproul entered into the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was greatly used by God as he reintroduced Reformed theology to the evangelical church. He articulated the doctrines of grace with passion, courage, conviction, and authority.

Dr. Stephen J. Nichols explores the man that captured the hearts and minds of people around the globe in his recent book, R.C. Sproul: A Life. Nichols is the president of Reformation Bible College, chief academic officer for Ligonier Ministries, and a Ligonier Ministries teaching fellow. As such, he is uniquely qualified to offer this definitive biography of R.C. Sproul.

Nichols skillfully guides readers on a detailed journey of Dr. Sproul’s life story – from Pittsburgh to Ligonier Valley to Orlando. He highlights the critical points in R.C.’s life, including conversion, Seminary, the founding of Ligonier Ministry, and beyond.

Summary

Dr. Sproul was a teacher, preacher, evangelist, and defender of the gospel of Jesus Christ. R.C. taught the truth, defended the truth, and worked tirelessly to proclaim the truth to the nations. The final sentence of his last earthly sermon is a fitting tribute to his life: “So I pray with all my heart that God will awaken each one of us today to the sweetness, the loveliness, the glory of the gospel declared by Christ.”

Dr. R.C. Sproul (1939 – 2017) fought the good fight. He finished the race. And he kept the faith. Enter into the joy of your Savior where you will reign with him unto all eternity.
