  • Introduction to The Reformation Study Bible

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 31, 2008 Category: Articles

    The Bible is a book. It may be called a collection of books compiled together into one majestic volume. As a book it is designed to be read. In this respect it is like all other books. But the Bible is not like any other book. It is the Book of Books. We customarily call this book the Holy Bible. Its holiness is found in its "otherness." It is a sacred book because it transcends and stands apart from, above, every other book. It is holy because its ultimate Author is holy. It is holy because its message is holy. It is holy because its content is designed to make us holy. Keep Reading

  • The Power of Prayer (pt. 3)

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 28, 2008 Category: Articles

    Prayer is the priestly function of carrying a petition to God. In Old Testament times two major classes of mediators functioned between God and his people: prophets and priests. Stated simply, the prophet was ordained by God to speak his divine Word to the people. The prophet spoke to the people for God. Conversely, the priest was ordained by God to be a spokesman for the people. The priest spoke to God for the people. Keep Reading
  • The Power of Prayer (pt. 2)

    from R.C. Sproul Oct 27, 2008 Category: Articles

    The simple summaries Jesus gives are designed to encourage us to pray. We have not, he said, because we ask not. The pattern seems simple. We are to ask and we will receive. Elsewhere the New Testament expands the conditions, giving us a fuller view of what is involved in effective prayer. Below are five texts with the conditions that qualify the statements Jesus gives.

  • A New “Must Read” for Reformed Christians

    from Keith Mathison Oct 25, 2008 Category: Articles

    For the last several years, I have been hearing rumors of a book project that was being developed by Dr. James T. Dennison.

Some of these confessions have long been available in English, but many have never before been translated. Occasionally, I would see references being made to this work on various blogs and forums, but I did not know when it would be complete. Keep Reading
