Transformed by truth
I read this years ago when it was titled Grace Unknown. For me it was a true Berean experience. As R C explained the history and teachings of the reformation, so much of what I knew of scripture started to make perfect sense, and I came to the realization that what was being taught was absolutely biblical. It was also the most humbling moment when my "Arminian" leanings died, realizing I stood before God with absolutely nothing in my hands. Read this book.
Last night I again finished "What Is Reformed Theology" for the 4th time. It is one of the most important books available for lay people, it should be assimilated into the mind and heart of every Christian.
A great book!
When I read this book (for the second time) I became convinced that the Reformed understanding of scripture is the most faithful to the text of God's word. This book is a great introduction to Reformed theology. I highly recommend it.
No longer a 3 point Calvinist
I never fully accepted the doctrine of election until I read this book. I fell into the confused group of people who refer to themselves as three point Calvinists. In this book, Dr. Sproul convinced me of the scriptural foundation and all-or-nothing nature of the doctrines of grace. I finally realized that I had never fully comprehended the meaning of total depravity. Once he helped me to understand that, accepting the rest was just a matter of submitting my stuborn resistance.
