 John Calvin & Geneva | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

 When John Calvin was expelled from Geneva, he assumed he would never return.  Calvin was content to live out his days writing and ministering in relative obscurity, far from big city politics.  But God excels at toppling human expectations.  Dr. Robert Godfrey describes Calvin’s historic return to Geneva, and the permanent mark this left on the Western world.

 From the German Reformation to Calvin | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

The Protestant Reformation began in Germany, but it was not long before the theological movement reached Geneva, Switzerland and a man named John Calvin. In this message, Dr. Robert Godfrey traces the path of this unstoppable force as he continues his survey of church history from AD 1500-1600.

 Pre-Evangelism | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

Dr. Sproul, explains that, even though only the Holy Spirit can change a person’s heart and mind (bring them to repentance), we see the very important dimension of apologetics in what he calls “pre-evangelism” and also what we call “post-evangelism”.

 Everyone’s a Theologian, Part 2 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

Today we will hear the second half of the discussion with host Lee Webb and Dr. R.C. Sproul about his new book Everyone's a Theologian. Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. Any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. Therefore, it is important that we put the Bible’s varied teachings together in a systematic fashion, using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation so as to arrive at a theology that is founded on truth.

 Knowledge of God | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

The fundamental principle when discussing “The Knowledge of God”, is that while our knowledge of God is neither exhaustive nor comprehensive, we do have a meaningful way of speaking about Him. God has addressed to us in our terms, and has made us in His image so that there is an analogy between ourselves and Him. These things enable the avenue of communication between God and us.

 Scope and Purpose of Theology | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

Why do we continue to study theology even after many scholars have come up with ideas and systems of thought? Dr. Sproul discusses in this message the scope and purpose of studying and learning theology.

 What Is Theology? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

What is theology? If you asked most people on the street if they knew the answer to that question, they would have no clue what to say. Biology, zoology, physiology, or anthropology sound familiar but theology, the study of God is foreign to them. Dr. Sproul says in this message that the term is actually an all encompassing subject that covers all parts of those things that God has revealed to us in sacred Scripture. He takes a look at what theology truly is and breaks it down in a way that is easy to understand.

 Why Apologetics? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

“Apologetics” is the science of rationally defending the Christian faith.  But recently, some Christians have claimed that apologetics are no longer necessary in a postmodern culture.  In this lesson, Dr. R.C. explains why we need rational arguments for Christianity today more than ever.

 The Faithful Servant | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

If a wealthy man leaves to attend a wedding feast, and pays servants to watch over his house while he’s gone, what happens when he returns to find that they have fallen asleep on the job?  And how does this apply to our lives?  Hear the answers in this message from Dr. R.C. Sproul, on Luke 12:35-48. 

 The Evangelistic Zeal of George Whitefield | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

George Whitefield burst into the 18th century with an evangelistic fervor that was unparalleled.  His ministry stretched across England, Scotland and the United States, and he was more widely known at the time than even George Washington.  In this message, Dr. Steven J. Lawson talks about his engaging new book titled, The Evangelistic Zeal of George Whitefield.

 Principle vs Custom | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

The Bible describes a number of temporal and local customs that are no longer relevant to us today.  For example, we need not carry packs for Roman soldiers (Matthew 5:41), because we are not living in the Roman Empire.  Yet underneath the biblical customs lie unchanging principles that still apply to us.  In this message, Dr. Sproul teaches us to discern between customs and principles.

 Scripture & Culture | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:25

A vast cultural gap exists between the people of the Bible and people who live today.  This fissure often makes it difficult for contemporary Christians to understand the biblical authors’ intention.  In this lesson, Dr. Sproul explains how learning about ancient Israelite culture can help us grasp and apply the unchanging message of Scripture.
