A Letter From the Instructor
I remember a “questions and answers” session with Dr. R.C. Sproul, Ligonier’s founder and RBC’s first president, in which he was asked which figure from church history had the greatest impact upon him. Without hesitating, Dr. Sproul answered, “My guy is Jonathan Edwards.” I have been studying Edwards since I first read his classic text Religious Affections back in 1987. I have enjoyed reading him and have learned a great deal from him since. That’s why I’m delighted that you are considering this course. Edwards had an insatiable appetite for God’s Word, God’s world, and God Himself. He was a scholar, pastor, revivalist, missionary—to the Mohicans, and a college president. Above all, he was a faithful, not perfect of course, disciple of Jesus Christ. I look forward to being challenged by his life and thought right alongside of you.
Thank you for considering taking this course.
Warm regards in Christ,
