If There’s a God, Why are There Atheists by Dr. R.C. Sproul (Paperback)
Why do atheists believe in unbelief? R.C. Sproul demonstrates that atheists have a vested interest in denying the existence of God who claims moral authority over our lives. He turns the arguments of atheism upon itself. He shows how its underpinnings are fallacious, denying basic human assumptions that are undeniable. College students especially can benefit from hearing the Christian perspective on ideas many hear promoted daily in the classroom.
“This brief book successfully exposes the foolishness of unbelief, demonstrating that the giants of secular ‘theology’ are driven by their sinful hearts, rather than their open minds, just as Paul reminds us in Romans 1. Along the way, as with another more well known book by the same author we are shown the holiness of God, that we might not only believe, but worship.”
—R.C. Sproul Jr.
Preachers and Preaching by Dr. R.C. Sproul (Audio Download)
In this series, Dr. Sproul examines Martin Luther’s view of preachers and preaching, and demonstrates that Luther’s descriptions of a pastor and guidelines for preaching offer valuable instruction for the church today. As he discusses the qualifications of a pastor, including his spiritual gifts, knowledge, and doctrine, R.C. charges pastors, as faithful servants of the Word of God, to focus on nurturing their congregations not entertaining them. He reminds ministers of their high calling and discusses common snares that have damaged the effectiveness of preachers throughout the ages.
The Prince’s Poison Cup by R.C. Sproul (eBook download)
With The Prince’s Poison Cup, Dr. R. C. Sproul continues his series of books designed to present deep biblical truths to children on their own level. In this work, he focuses in on the atonement to show that Jesus had to endure the curse of sin in order to redeem His people from their spiritual death.
When Ella gets sick and has to take yucky medicine, she wonders why something that will help her get well has to taste so bad. When she puts the question to Grandpa, he tells her the story of a great King and His subjects who enjoyed wonderful times together—until the people rebelled against the King and drank from a forbidden well. To their horror, they found that the beautiful water in the well made their hearts turn to stone. To reclaim His people, the King asks His Son, the Prince, to drink from a well of horrid poison. The poison will surely kill the Prince—but He is willing to drink it to please His Father and help His people.
Richly illustrated, The Prince’s Poison Cup will help children appreciate the great love of God for His people and the awful price Jesus had to pay because of sin. A “For Parents” section provides assistance in unfolding the biblical elements of the story.
The Masculine Mandate: God’s Calling to Men by Rev. Richard D. Phillips (Hardcover)
There is a crying need in the church today for men to be men. But competing visions for what a man is to be —some growing out of popular culture and others arising from flawed teaching in the church—are exacerbating the problem.
Rev. Richard D. Phillips believes the problem and the inadequate solutions being put forward demand sound exegesis of biblical passages relating to masculinity. The Bible alone has the answer to what men are to be in the eyes of their Creator.
In this book, Rev. Phillips provides this essential exegesis and issues a call to reformation in the evangelical church’s attitude toward the role of men in the family, the church, and society.
