A Tribute to R.C. Sproul

rcsproul.jpgMy comment: R. C. Sproul has been one of the primary factors in the resurgence of Reformed Theology in American Evangelicalism. I personally cut my teeth on Reformed Theology through the ministry of R. C. Sproul and can truly identify with much in this article. That being the case, I figured I would reblog this post, in order to pay tribute to R. C. Sproul.

When I was a young boy, I distinctly remember sitting in the living rooms of various families of the churches we attended–watching VHS tapes of Dr. R.C. Sproul. At this time, that was an innovative way to be fed spiritually–to say the least. To have one of the great theologians of the 20th Century on your television in your living room was a big deal back then. Dr. Sproul was one of the first Reformed ministers to use VHS tapes when they were still somewhat untested and experimental mediums. Add to this the numerous R.C. Sproul cassette tapes that lay around our home. R.C. Sproul’s name and ministry was far from foreign in our family in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Tabletalk Magazine was also a common sight in the Batzig home. I would frequently see my mom carrying out her morning devotions with a Bible, Tabletalk Magazine and a cup of coffee. These are some of the early memories of the formative influence that R.C. Sproul had on me as a young boy.
