In R.C. Sproul’s Essential Truths of the Christian Faith, over 100 important Christian doctrines are expounded, each in a few succinct pages-from the fall to the return of Christ, from providence to predestination, from sin to the sacraments, from antinomianism to the anti-Christ. Sproul’s homespun analogies and illustrations from contemporary life make this book interesting, informative, and easy to read.

Top Highlights

“The third purpose of the law is to reveal what is pleasing to God.” (source)

“As oxygen is necessary but not sufficient for a fire to ignite, so doctrine is necessary but not sufficient to light a fire in our hearts. Without the gracious operation of the Holy Spirit in our hearts, the mere presence of doctrine, even sound doctrine, will leave us cold.” (source)

“What predestination means, in its most elementary form, is that our final destination, heaven or hell, is decided by God not only before we get there, but before we are even born.” (source)

“A second purpose for the law is the restraint of evil.” (source)

“To be a fool in biblical terms is not to be dim-witted or lacking in intelligence; it is to be immoral. As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness.” (source)
