When Worlds Collide by R.C. Sproul (hardcover)
Name any catastrophic event in the course of history, and it seems as if God has abandoned the human race. Where was He while the Israelites groaned in oppressive slavery for 400 years? Where was He during the Holocaust? Where was He on 9/11? It sometimes seems that God is silent, watching the horrors of life on earth without pity or concern.
R.C. Sproul discusses this very issue – the role of God when the ideas of men collide and wreak havoc. God has not abandoned His people, says Dr. Sproul, but while His hands pour out blessing upon blessing, they also bring calamity and darkness. Dr. Sproul’s analysis is challenging, but it is one that no Christian can afford to ignore. For it is only when we begin to understand the nature of God that we can ever hope to trust in His sovereignty during times of terror or sorrow. And it is only when we can trust in His sovereignty that we can say with Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust . . .”
The Mystery of the Trinity teaching series by R.C. Sproul (audio & video download)
Many of us, when asked about the Trinity, unknowingly offer heretical answers. Yet a proper understanding of this doctrine is essential to the health and welfare of the church. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul gives a sweeping overview of this important doctrine, explaining difficult concepts, exploring biblical teaching, and defining what the termmystery means.
Book of Ephesians teaching series by R.C. Sproul (audio download)
When Christ redeemed us from sin and death, He incorporated all believers into His body. It is therefore critical to understand the nature and calling of the church that we might be effective members of the one body that is called to bear witness to God’s grace in this world. This overview of the book of Ephesians by R.C. Sproul examines these important topics and demonstrates why they are essential to life before the face of God.
Tough Questions Christians Face: 2008 West Coast Conference (DVD)
Christ has redeemed us to be a light that directs others to Him. Fulfilling this call requires us to be able to deal with the most difficult questions asked about the Christian faith. If we are unprepared for the darkness around us, it will be harder to counter it with the truth of God’s Word.
In this collection of messages from the 2008 West Coast Conference held in Scottsdale, Ariz., Ligon Duncan, John MacArthur, and R.C. Sproul look at six of the toughest questions Christians face. They focus on the biblical approach to issues including science, the problem of evil, divine sovereignty, human responsibility, the exclusivity of Christ, postmodernism, and the Gospel.
Developing a Healthy Prayer Life: 31 Meditations on Communing with God by various authors (paperback)
Is your prayer life characterized by such things as sincerity, urgency, and delight? Engagement in prayer is a vital part of our communion with God, making a profound impact on our growth in grace. In this book, you will find thoughtful meditations on prayer in the life of the believer, as well as ample encouragement to cultivate this spiritual discipline in your own life. If you want to be more devoted to prayer, or simply want to assess the health of your prayer life, read this book. It provides both a helpful examination and a needed tonic for those concerned about growing in godliness.
I would highly encourage picking up any or all of these resources as your budget allows. I’m keen on The Mystery of the Trinity and Tough Questions Christians Face myself…
