R.C. Sproul. The Knight’s Map.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, May 1st 2016. 39 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

I have previously enjoyed two of the author’s Christian children’s book titled The Priest with Dirty Clothes and The Donkey Who Carried a King.  The author R.C. Sproul was not only a gifted theologian but wrote wonderful children’s book including this one.  In light of his recent death he will surely be missed.

Today Christian theologian and teacher RC Sproul went home to be with the Lord around 3 PM Eastern Standard Time.  Over at Ligoner Ministry they have these details:

Dr. R.C. Sproul went home to be with the Lord this afternoon around 3 p.m. surrounded by his wife, Vesta, and family in his hospital room in Altamonte Springs, Fla. He was 78. He died peacefully after being hospitalized twelve days ago due to severe respiratory difficulties exacerbated by the flu and complicated by chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Known to millions of Christians as simply “R.C.,” he was used of the Lord to proclaim, teach, and defend the holiness of God in all its fullness. Through his teaching ministry, many of us learned that God is bigger than we knew, our sin is more deeply rooted than we imagined, and the grace of God in Jesus Christ is overwhelming.

God called R.C. to proclaim the gospel to as many people as possible. R.C. did this knowing the Lord did not need him. In fact, he wanted people to know the enduring, faithful witness of God’s servants throughout church history. God powerfully used R.C.’s ministry in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to awaken people around the world to the truths of classical Christianity.

It belongs to others in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead to assess the impact of R.C.’s ministry in the history of the church. In this moment, we feel loss—immense sadness and profound loss—the loss of a pastor, a teacher, a leader, a brother-in-Christ, a friend.

He has been a faithful servant of Christ.  I have benefited immensely from his teaching and ministry.  Many in my church have also benefited from his teaching in the past as well.  Over the years on blog have posted reviews and resources from his ministry which you can check out here.

What a sobering reminder that there is an eternity to come.  What a sobering reminder as well that what we do for the Lord extends to eternity.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8

This month many Christians online are remembering God’s grace with the Reformation 500 years ago.  Here’s a neat resource to understand more of the Reformation.

Here is a series titled “Reformation Profiles”  It is taught by Stephen Nichols of Ligonier Ministries.

For those of you with Amazon Prime the good news is that it is made available for free!

Here’s the description from Ligonier Ministries:

A careful study of the history of the church prepares and equips its members to face the difficulties of its own day. Popular church historian and author, Stephen Nichols, embarks on this seven-part series to assist the church in understanding the solas of the Reformation and their place for the people of God in all ages.

To access this series on Amazon click HERE.

Don’t let the number of lectures intimidate you: They are all 24 minutes-25 minutes each except for the last one which is 10 minutes long.  I love the “bite size” way Ligonier Ministries presented this and other teaching series.

Here’s the break down of each lecture with a description and links to the individual videos:
