Perfectly structured look at apologetics. Very informative and challenging. Although not too intellectual that it would make your nose bleed.
Every child of God should learn to defend their faith. This book has helped me to defend the faith from my own doubts and has reintroduced God to me even though I am a practicing minister of over twenty years
RC is Whitt and relevant now one of my best ever books
At times challenging but the author takes a step by step approach. Very encouraging and enlightening - put 'flesh on the bones' of some of my own reasoning's and challenged others.
"Good, but a bit too theoretical than practical."
Listeners should note that this actually a series of lectures by Sproul recorded live in a lecture hall rather than an actual eBook. Still though it listens good. Sproul will put your mind thinking.
"Clear, concise and cogent"
Yes. It has so many fruits that I'm sure I didn't get them all the first two or three times. I continued backing up my player to listen to some concept to make sure I had heard it correctly.
Nope. First time. But I just ordered two of his books in hard copy and another one from audible.com. Outstandingly clear. You may not agree with him but it won't be because you don't understand what he says.
Awesome. First book on apologetics that I thoroughly understood.
Interesting, especially with metaphors and anecdotes to emphasize points. Cogent, proceeds from the simple to the complex with each step thoroughly explained without being verbose.
A lot of philosophy in the beginning but necessary to establish. R.C's Systematic Thrology series may be more suited to those looking for another apologoist resource
"Great lecture audio."
It will stiffen your spine as a believer. I love the audio lecture format. His thoughts are very well put together he uses just the right words to explain his position.
"I Have Just Discovered Sproul Of Late..."
but I am finding him quite engaging, and, refreshingly intelligent in his approach to theology. I was raised in a non-Calvinist Christianity, but I find Sproul's exegesis clear and comprehensible and true to the orthodox faith. This makes two of his books I have read, and I will be reading more in future.
"The Presupposition Apologists View Is Lacking"
As a reformed guy I've viewed myself as a presuppositionalist but it felt it was empty. I also think the evidentiallist view is flawed. RC Sproul gives undeniable proofs for the existence of God. He calls this the classical view of apologetics.
I highly recommend this book!
"Great audio book"
I really enjoyed listening to this book, very into depth in explaining the proof of the existence of God and of the Bible. One of those books that you can go over and over again to learn and catch something new!
"Director of Freed Indeed Min review"
great book! I think every Christian should listen at least once! It really establishes the truth claims of Scripture.
"Intelligent defense for the christian faith"
I always love hearing audio from the author because they covey their ideas and points of emphasis more clearly.
What stands out to me the most is the author's complete destruction of the concept of self creation. I was fed that garage as a biology major in college and made to feel stupid for my faith in God.
The author pointed out how most people just accept any concept without question if a seemingly intelligent person presents the concept in a sincere and forceful way. He demonstrated from one of his own classroom experiences as a teacher by giving a false assertion that not only the students bought but a visiting professor didn't see through.
This is a must read for all Christians and all non Christians because it clearly not only establishes the possibility of the existence of God but the absolute necessity of the existence of God. Then the book moves on to show that the bible is not only reliable and credible by Christian standards but also by secular standards.
"Awesome Lectures, not for Christian infants."
this book is great lectures from the offer, however it's not for the infant in of Christianity. this book is an excellent resource for those who have been decided for a number of years, or already deep in their theological understanding. I suggest all parents read this for their children's questions about faith.
