Believing God: Twelve Biblical Promises Christians Struggle to Accept
Reformation Trust 2009
In his latest book, Believing God, Dr. R. C. Sproul Jr. challenges Christians to take a second glance at the promises of God in the Bible in order to see anew the grandeur of what God has committed himself to do for his people. Sproul explores 12 of the most significant promises in Scripture, methodically unpacking each divine pledge. He shows that while Christians may express trust in God’s words, they refuse, in numerous ways, to stake their lives on what he says.
In the final analysis, the book functions as a mirror in which every reader with a teachable heart will see how he or she can more fully believe God. All Christians who appreciate careful biblical teaching and heartfelt passion for God will appreciate and benefit from this book.
With the Logos edition, Believing God is fully integrated with the other resources in your digital library, including Bibles, maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. All Scripture references are linked directly to the text of your favorite Bible translation, making your Bible study and teaching preparations more effective and rewarding.

That makes this important book more useful than ever before for pastors, teachers, Bible study leaders, and anyone else desiring to get deeper into the truth of God’s Word.

Praise for the Print Edition
Believing God addresses one of the most significant problems in the church today: We do not take the Bible seriously. Specifically, in regard to God’s amazing promises, we tend to believe only those that seem logical to us. R. C. Sproul Jr. helps us see that in Christ Jesus all of God’s promises are “Yes” and are meant to be believed and relied upon. This book will stimulate your faith.

This book is rich provision for all of us who have cried out, “Lord, I believe. Help me in my unbelief.” R. C. Jr. has marshaled the hope of faith for a host of our recurring doubts—that we might be tossed to and fro no longer.
—George Grant, pastor, Parish Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Tennessee, founder, King’s Meadow Study Center
Many years ago, I first heard the cute catchphrase “Some people are just sitting on the premises instead of standing on the promises.” As a fired-up young Christian, I was quite sure it didn’t apply to me. More than fifty years later, Believing God has challenged me to have a reality check. R. C. Sproul Jr.’s excellent approach to twelve key biblical promises achieves the combination of being both forensic and pastoral, clinical and tender, surgical and sympathetic. Read it carefully, apply it diligently—then be sure to pass it on to somebody else. I predict it will do a power of good.
—John Blanchard, preacher, teacher, and apologist author, Does God Believe in Atheists?
