R C SPROUL
“Christianity is a religion with content,” R. C. Sproul affirms in the preface to this work. “Its truths are central to the life and practice of the church.” He adds, “It is necessary in every generation for the church to clarify its beliefs against constant attacks and distortions of her body of truth.”
Few evangelical leaders in recent decades have contributed as much to our understanding of scriptural truth as has Dr. Sproul. “For almost a biblical generation, the ministry of R. C. Sproul has been transforming the convictions of evangelicals,” wrote Edmund Clowney, who described him as “a morning star of a new reformation.”
In keeping with his conviction that theology belongs to everyone, Sproul has written this highly readable commentary on the Westminster Confession of Faith. Each of the three volumes of this commentary includes the portions of the confession being discussed, chapter by chapter and section by section. Key confessional phrases are also highlighted in bold as Sproul explains their significance for our faith and practice.
This second volume (of three), covering chapters 9-22 of the confession, explains the doctrines of free will, effectual calling, justification, adoption, sanctification, faith, repentance, good works, perseverance, assurance, God’s law, Christian liberty, the sabbath, and oaths. Every discussion is geared toward bringing us to a deeper knowledge of and greater love for the doctrines of grace set forth in God’s Word.
