RC Sproul. The Intimate Marriage: A Practical Guide to Building a Great Marriage.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, March 31st, 2017. 163 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

How is your marriage doing?  Are you growing in loving each other and also growing in godliness?  Do you desire to read a book that would help you strive to grow in these areas for your marriage?  If so this book is for you.  I realize the title of the book might sound its about sex but it isn’t solely on sex, though it does talk about that subject for one of the chapters.  It’s really a book on godly love between a husband and wife and what does God’s way looks like.  My wife and I immensely enjoyed this work.  I found this work very helpful so much so that I incorporated some of the insights of the book into my twenty four session series on marriage difficulties.

I haven’t reviewed children’s book in a while.  I wished I reviewed this earlier, this makes for a great gift for children.

R.C. Sproul. The Lightlings.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, October 1st 2006. 40 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

It has been over a year since RC Sproul passed away and reading this book to my kids made me missed him.  While I read this books to my kids twelve years after this book was first written it is still as relevant as ever; that’s because this work is based upon Christian truth about the Gospel, with the theme of creation, fall and redemption told in the form of an allegory.  I would say this work is a classic.

R.C. Sproul,. The Barber Who Wanted To Pray.  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, September 16th 2011.  30 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This is another of RC Sproul’s children book.  There has been a few of his books that I and my kids have enjoyed from him which led me to purchase this book as well.  In this work RC Sproul writes a book that touches on prayer.  I love how in this book as well as others RC Sproul writes on spiritual truths using a story within a story in which the first level of the story are kids hearing adults telling a story with a spiritual lesson that is relevant for them and their situation.  That helps the kids think more reflectively of how the main story applies to the children’s lives.

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.

Sproul

I will always remember the sermon from Pastor Sproul on the holiness of God from Isaiah 6. It was life-changing and shifted my perspective on the God who people are both terrified and fascinated with. His holiness drove me into insights on sin, justice, and grace that I was quite cognizant of but was not really challenged on to dig deeper. About eight years have passed–I still remember it.  Check out the series.  I pray that it will revive your heart: Holiness of God Series.

Now this man of God who was used to impact my life on the holiness of God is near the entrance of Heaven that far supersedes in splendor to the fictitious halls of Vahalla. As the Puritan prayers say, in Heaven,

“There is joy without sorrow,
comfort without suffering,
love without inconstancy,
rest without weariness.”

Though nowhere close to the magnitude of Moses’ departure, the passing of Dr. Sproul provides me with some small glimpse of the great mourning of Moses by the children of Israel.  The leader who led them out of the bondage of slavery was no longer with them.  Moses was there when giants and enemies roamed the ancient and frightening land.  When he went to glory,  he left a lasting legacy for the children of Israel.  A legacy that pointed the people to the eternal God.  In the 21st century for me, Dr. Sproul was a titanic figure in evangelicalism.  He was an astute reformed theological sage that helped mined systematic theology, the character of God, and the doctrine of justification for so many.  He fought vigorously for the Gospel and denounced the 1994 ecumenical document signed by leading Evangelical and Roman Catholic scholars in the United States.  He saw it as a compromise.  See more here: A Tribute to My Friend. Although he is gone, his legacy is still imprinted.

Once the tears dry-up, I pray that the memories of this slave of Christ will drive others to look to Christ whom Pastor Sproul love to point people to.
