Books That Most Influenced Dr. R.C. Sproul

I just stumbled across a list put together by R.C. Sproul of what he considers the books that have been the most influential in shaping his thought and ministry. Dr. Sproul has been teaching and preaching for over 50 years and he has obviously read many books. It was interesting to see which ones stand out in his mind.

1. The Freedom of the Will, Edwards
2. The Bondage of the Will, Luther
3. Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin
4. God in Modern Philosophy, Collins
5. A Time for Truth, Simons
6. Charity and Its Fruits, Edwards
7. The Person of Christ, Berkhouwer
8. Gospel Fear, Burroughs
9. Gospel Worship, Burroughs
10. Institutes of Elenctic Theology (3 Vol.), Turretin
11. Principles of Conduct, Murray
12. A Christian View of Men & Things, Clark
13. Thales to Dewey, Clark
14. Here I Stand, Bainton
15. A Simple Way to Pray, Luther
16. The Coming of the Kingdom, Ridderbos

I also posted this list in a comment under the post "Advanced Study". If you find a similar list from another teacher or if you have your own that you would like to share please post it in the comments of the "Advanced Studies" post (listed under reading materials).
