R.C. Sproul

Sproul founded Ligonier Ministries in 1971, as an international Christian education center for Reformed theology, producing hundreds of lectures, video series, and The Reformation Study Bible. His voice has been heard by millions of people on his radio program, “Renewing Your Mind.”

On the 60th anniversary of his “conversion to the Christian faith,” he described his early life from Ecclesiastes 11:3: “The author of Ecclesiastes describes, in metaphorical terms, a tree that falls in the forest and where it falls there it stays. And God awakened my soul. . .as I saw myself as a tree falling, and rotting, and decaying. Look carefully at the Scriptures and the Word of God, and that that Word may be used in power to quicken your soul.”
