R. C. Sproul, February 13, 1939-December 14, 2017

December 16, 2017

Yesterday we all learned about the home-going of theologian, author and teacher R.C. Sproul at the age of 78.  Dr. Sproul’s ministry meant a great deal to me and he certainly reached the hearts and minds of many, many people, through his books, conferences, and messages.  Dr. Albert Mohler has written quite a warm remembrance of R.C., that can be read here, so I will let it speak for me.  But I will quote one short excerpt from Dr. Mohler’s post, which sums up very well the impact that R.C. Sproul had:

When he taught about the holiness of God, a generation of evangelicals was rescued from the emaciated and desiccated theology of cultural Christianity.

That is very much the truth: I shudder to think where American evangelicalism would have been had it not been for Dr. Sproul.  Thanks be to God for his ministry.

    Although I never accepted aspects of Sproul’s robust Calvininsm, I have admired and benefitted from his life and work. He was truly evangelical and biblical, and his apologetics and Scriptural comments have aided my own faith and reflections over decades. Thanks be to God for this faithful servant!

      Thank you for your comment. I think Dr. Sproul’s work and ministry benefited all of us who consider ourselves heirs of the Reformation, whether Reformed, Lutheran or evangelical.
      I checked out your blog and think it is pretty good!
