Classic Teachings on the Nature of God: The Holiness of God; Chosen by God; Pleasing God—Three Books in One
Sproul, R. C.
“Every generation is under a biblical mandate to provide a legacy for the coming generation that honors the Lord and propels them with insight and encouragement rooted in the glorious Gospel of our Savior, Jesus Christ. Dr. R. C. Sproul in the Holiness of God and Chosen by God has provided such a legacy for the next generation. One generation stacks up stones to the praise of God to teach the next generation. Here are two stones from the stack that give praise to God! Open these books and you will find the biblical truth insightfully illustrated and challengingly communicated. May the Lord do great things through you as you profit from these works until he comes in glory.”See All
Harry Reeder III on Chosen by God
“Christians belong to God because we have been chosen by him. This simple truth is little understood by people who have been led to imagine that it is they who have chosen God and not the other way around. Dr. Sproul has shown us with the clarity that is his hallmark just what this means for us and why it is so important.”See All
Gerald Bray on Chosen by God
“R.C. Sproul has long ago established his position as one of the most effective communicators of the great truths of Reformed theology. Chosen by God is an outstandingly helpful treatment of the doctrine of predestination. Characteristically, it is clear in both thought and expression, consistently led by Biblical teaching, and yet very lively in style and highly readable.”See All
Eric Alexander on Chosen by God
“Chosen by God by R.C. Sproul is a classic of twentieth century Reformed literature. Nothing has surpassed it in clarity or passion. Those who count this volume as 'life-changing' are legion. I am ecstatic that it has been made available for a new generation to discover.”See All
Derek W. H. Thomas on Chosen by God
“This is the book to hand anyone who has been inquiring about or struggling with the tenets of Calvinism in general, and with the subject of election in particular. It is easily read, finely illustrated, and belongs in the library of every Christian. I recommend it highly.”See All
Jay Adams on Chosen by God
“Chosen by God is a more focused look at unconditional election, one that is winsome and powerfully persuasive. If you had to pick one of Sproul's books to give to a Christian just introduced to the doctrine of election, this would be it. Putting his arm over your shoulder, R. C. shows you just what is at stake in God's sovereign decree.”See All
Matthew Barrett on Chosen by God
“To this day, whenever I talk to men my age who went through the same sort of theological conversion I did, they almost invariably identify Chosen by God as the book that made the difference. I know it did for me. It is still one of the most formative books of my life.”See All
Jared C. Wilson on Chosen by God
“clearly one of the best introductions to Calvinism available.”See All
Tim Challies on Chosen by God
“If it is true, as Calvin tells us, that our greatest need is to know God, the specific need of our times is to know God in his holiness. We have suffered much loss both in Christian living and in Christian witness by our neglect of this theme. May God use this book to the blessing and upbuilding of a new generation of readers.”See All
Eric Alexander on Holiness of God
“Nothing is more important in our Christian lives than our understanding of who God is. In this book Dr. Sproul shows us what that means and challenges us to think again about the depths of divine holiness. To ponder this is to see ourselves as we really are, to repent afresh and to turn to him again with greater dedication and commitment. This is a message we cannot do without.”See All

Derek W. H. Thomas on Holiness of God

Steven Lawson on Holiness of God

R.C. Sproul on Holiness of God
“When I first heard R. C. Sproul's teaching on the holiness of God, it brought me face-to-face with the awful splendor of God's majestic holiness in a new and fresh way. I was smitten with the realization that holiness is not merely a peripheral attribute of God; it is at the core of all He is and does. I realized then that this was precisely the message the church of our generation urgently needed - and still needs today. Nearly a decade after I first heard this series, the message still challenges my thinking and rekindles my heart.”See All
John MacArthur on Holiness of God
“Every Christian who is serious about his or her growth needs to read The Holiness of God. I profited greatly from this book.”See All
Jerry Bridges on Holiness of God
R. C. Sproul has committed his life to clearly communicating deep, practical truths from God's Word to students and laypeople. His lucid teaching style brings clarity to the most difficult--and often contentious-- biblical and theological questions. Gathered here in one volume are three of his best-selling books--over $40 worth of reading at a great low price.
From Rudolf Otto's mysterium tremendum to Martin Luther's “insanity” and Jonathan Edwards's fiery sermons, Sproul's classic The Holiness of God illuminates history and Scripture to help readers understand--and live with--the tension that exists between God's terrifying holiness and his inexplicable grace.
In Chosen by God, Sproul tackles the divisive subject of predestination, and discusses God's sovereignty and the problem of evil, human freedom, and the task of evangelism. He explains that there is a mystery in God's ways but not contradiction; and paints a picture of a loving--not spiteful or whimsical--God who provides redemption for radically corrupt people.
Pleasing God explores the topic of sanctification--how we satisfy God by pursuing righteousness. Sproul examines the constant battle Christians wage against sin--pride, slothfulness, dishonesty. He reveals how many Christians have tragically abandoned the struggle, but that God delights in those who press on.
Although Sproul brings a Reformed background and approach to topics, his work is not just for Calvinists but for all Christians who want to understand and build on the foundations of their faith.
