Side note: Ligonier has a new “offer” every day through their “Renewing Your Mind” radio show (click here) that is like a treasure trove of awesome material all sent to you for a donation of ANY amount. In theory, you could donate a penny and they’ll still send it out to you. I recommend you donate more, but it’s an awesome outreach ministry they offer!
I’m excited to start this new book because it’s been a relevant topic in my life since I can remember existing.
Curiosity has guided my life down many interesting paths and was what eventually led me to the Christian faith (alongside a lot of other things but I’ll write more about that another day if you don’t already know my testimony). The questions of “Why do I exist?”, “Is there a God?”, “What’s the purpose/meaning of life?” have plagued my mind for many years and, even though I can confidently tell you that I believe what the Bible says regarding each of those questions, I admit that my doubt can sometimes put me into a state of utter panic and distress.
RC Sproul has earned my respect over the past several months (since I only “found out” about him earlier this year) because he is a pastor that doesn’t look to validate his personal opinions when going to the Scriptures but, rather, his personal opinions and worldview has completely been shaped by the Word of God.
It’s admirable, to say the least.
If you end up buying the book too, please let me know. I never have anyone to discuss with what I’m currently reading and that’s mainly due to 1) My awful social anxiety that keeps me from searching or joining any local book clubs and 2) Finding a book club that is Christian and not reading books from pastors that have no business being pastors.
