OTHER SERIES WITH R.C. Sproul
Faith alone is the foundational answer to the question, “What must I do to be saved?” The doctrine of justification by faith alone is at the center of Reformation theology, and remains critical for all believers today. This doctrine is continually under assault, yet without it, there is no gospel. In this lecture series, Dr. Sproul explores the doctrine of justification historically and theologically. He carefully defines each term in the phrase “justification by faith alone” while pointing to the imputation of a perfect righteousness found only in Jesus Christ.

"Have you ever been troubled by doubts about the Bible? Have you ever had your faith in God's Word challenged or dismissed? The temptation in the Garden didn't begin with promises of wealth or power. It began with an attack on God's Word. Satan continues that challenge today, with devastating results inside and outside the church. 

Hath God Said? meets the devil's challenge. R.C. Sproul proclaims and defends the world-transforming truth that God has spoken in His Word. He shows that communication requires an absolute standard of truth—and that Scripture is that standard. And R.C. demonstrates the failure of all attempts to make the Bible partly true and partly false. Hath God Said? will strengthen your faith in the integrity of the Bible—and your ability to proclaim and defend His holy character in your world."

"In 2 Peter, Peter exhorts all who read his letter to make their calling and election sure by diligently pursuing the fruit of the Spirit. “For in this way,” he writes, “there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 1:11, ESV). 

In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul addresses the importance of living in pursuit of holiness over against “easy believism.” He explores the doctrine of assurance as he helps to explain the relationship between the Christian life and the work of Christ Jesus on our behalf."

Many believe that we are totally free to choose salvation. In Willing to Believe, Dr. R.C. Sproul shows that man's will is not free but in bondage to sin. He says that we are doomed unless God has mercy and changes our hearts. Dr. Sproul examines the issue of free will throughout history, looking at the views of Augustine, Pelagius, Luther, Calvin, Arminius, Edwards, Finney, and others, demonstrating that some assumptions regarding “free will” undermine the Gospel and conceal God's glory in salvation.

The Gospels describe a number of encounters of first-century Jews and Gentiles with Jesus Christ. From the encounter with Nathaniel to the encounter with Pontius Pilate, the writers of the Gospels describe the varying reactions of people to this One who claimed the authority of God Himself. In Face to Face With Jesus, Dr. R.C. Sproul looks at what Scripture reveals about the character of Jesus through His encounters with specific men and women.

Is your conscience held captive by the Word of God, or is it subject to the whims of your culture? The world seeks to suppress your conscience and conform it into the image of the lawless one. The Christian must seek the good, strive for integrity, and reflect the holiness of our Creator and Redeemer. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul lays the foundation for that lifelong process.

In opposition to churchmen who argued that man is made righteous by faith and works, the Protestant Reformers fearlessly preached that by faith alone God's people are justified. With devotion to Scripture above all else, Martin Luther, John Calvin, and others helped believers cast aside their perversions of the gospel and once again recognize the Lord alone as the One who saves. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines the biblical doctrine of redemption as summarized in the five solas of the Reformation, propositions that remind us God alone deserves the glory for our salvation.

What higher satisfaction is there than knowing that what we do and think is pleasing to God? But how can we, as imperfect Christians, ever hope to please a perfect God? Is it even possible in a world where temptations so often lead us astray? In this series of practical guidelines for Christian living, Dr. R.C. Sproul clearly identifies the struggles we all share in pleasing God and offers insights on how to overcome them.

These days there is a lot of talk about promises. Most of the time, the focus is on man's promises rather than on God's promises. But as we have all experienced, the promises of sinful man fail time and time again.

In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul demonstrates that the one, true Promise Keeper always keeps His promises. Dr. Sproul explains how God, throughout history, has fulfilled His promised plan of redemption in and through His people.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Prov. 1:7), but often we do fear the Lord as we ought because we forget how He is revealed in Scripture. We tend to view God as a heavenly grandfather, not as one who is a consuming fire. We think God is like us, when instead He is utterly holy. Until we understand who God is, we will not have the right attitude toward Him. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul helps us to understand who God really is, showing us the One who is holy.

The apostle John distinctively presents Jesus as the Logos, the eternal Word of God. Through Him the cosmos was created, and through Him the Father is most perfectly revealed.

In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines the eight unique "I AM" sayings of Jesus recorded in John's gospel, all of which are powerful expressions of His saving relationship to the world. He uses God's Word to bring us to a deeper understanding of the God-man as both protector and nurturer of His people.

To understand the culture in which we live in, you need to be familiar with the ideas that have shaped it.

In Ligonier's survey series, The Consequences of Ideas, R.C. Sproul traces the contours of Western philosophy throughout history and shows how our culture evolved to what it is today.

From ancient Greek thinkers like Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle to Christian philosophers such as Augustine, Anselm and Aquinas to the shapers of modern thought such as Hume, Kant and Nietzsche, R.C. demonstrates the consequences of each of these and other important thinkers' ideas on world events, theology, the fine arts and culture, as well as our everyday lives.

Listen, and you will hear echoes of their ideas in your daily conversations-especially as you witness to unbelievers.

Angels and demons are portrayed and discussed everywhere--from statues and paintings to poems and songs to the Internet. But are they understood correctly? With all the attention these beings receive, Christians are bound to get confused between what is often to be "common knowledge" and how the Word of God actually portrays them. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul challenges many of the modern myths regarding these other-worldly beings by offering a biblical view of the spiritual realm.

What characterizes Christians? The apostle Paul tells us: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22-23). It is through the Spirit that we develop these traits, grow in grace, and glorify God. Dr. R.C. Sproul explores these qualities and the transforming power they evidence.
