In 1997 scholar and teacher R.C. Sproul was called to the pulpit of St. Andrew’s in Sanford, Florida. The published collections of his sermons, the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary Series, are the result of years of careful preparation and weekly, Bible-centered preaching. Crossway has just released the third book in this series: Acts.
Readers will follow Dr. Sproul as he preaches through the book of Acts. The account of the gospel spreading to the Gentiles is the story of the roots of our faith. By God’s grace and the labor of Paul and the apostles, salvation has spread to all the nations. Balancing broad and narrow perspectives of each passage, Sproul explores important theological terms and themes, offers perspective from his own wisdom and experience, and engages in practical application. Delivered from a pastor’s heart for his congregation, readers will find Acts readable, applicable, appropriately paced, and thoroughly Bible-centered. Here is an opportunity to sit at the feet of an eminent theologian and teacher, encountering the Word of God.
“The St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series will be welcomed throughout the world. It promises to have all of Sproul’s hallmarks: clarity and liveliness, humor and pathos, always expressed in application to the mind, will, and affections. Sproul’s ability to focus on the big picture, his genius of never saying too much, leaving his hearers satisfied yet wanting more, never making the Word dull, are all present in these expositions. May they nourish God’s people well and serve as models of the kind of ministry for which we continue to hunger.” —Sinclair B. Ferguson, Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
“Sproul, well-known as a master theologian and extraordinary communicator, now shows that he is a powerful, insightful, helpful expository preacher. This collection of sermons is of great value for churches and Christians everywhere.” —W. Robert Godfrey, President and Professor of Church History, Westminster Seminary California
