America lost one of its greatest, most learned, most entertaining, and arguably most pugilistic Reformed theologians on Dec. 14, 2017, with the passing of Dr. Robert Charles “R.C.” Sproul, 78, an ordained pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) and founder of Ligonier Ministries. And almost immediately after his death, Christians throughout the English-speaking world began wondering when there would be – even clamoring for – a biography of the man once described as “the consummate happy warrior,” a “lion,” and one of “the greatest living theologians of our age.”
R.C. Sproul: A Life (March 2021) is just that, and written by Dr. Stephen J. Nichols, president of Reformation Bible College and Ligonier’s chief academic officer; the story does not disappoint.
Nichol’s book begins with the last few months of Sproul’s life and his final sermon on Nov. 26, 2017, nearly a month after the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 theses on the doors of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany on Oct. 31, 1517, which kicked off the Protestant Reformation.
