Announcing the German Translation of The Truth of the Cross by R.C. Sproul

by Martin Banzhaf, Global Outreach Coordinator

On the recent Ligonier tour of Reformation sites, Dr. Sproul met up with Sebastian Heck Ligonier’s German project coordinator in the historic city of Heidelberg where he is church planting. Being involved with publishing both in print and on the internet, Sebastian is the leader of a movement called Reformation2Germany and currently partnering with Ligonier in resource production. Dr. Sproul was surprised during the visit when Sebastian presented him with a copy of Was am Kreuz geschah (The Truth of the Cross) hot off the press.

Germany needs R.C.! That is, we need a warm and winsome introduction to the Reformed faith in books and lectures that we can point German believers to,” says Sebastian. “For that reason, we are glad to publish Was am Kreuz geschah. There are many wrong-headed ideas and theories about the atonement in German theology that are widespread even among evangelicals. R.C’s book is a clear-headed defense of the Reformed doctrine of substitutionary atonement. We are glad to see the sales of this book picking up already. May the Lord bring not only this book, but the message it carries, home to many people in this country!”

The next book Sebastian will be working on? John Calvin: A heart for Devotion, Doctrine, and Doxology, just in time for this summer’s celebrations of the influential Reformer.
