Podcast Throwback: Why did R.C. Sproul think Classical Theism was his legacy?
From his books to the chalkboard, R.C. Sproul communicated the deep things of God in an accessible way. When asked what the core of his legacy was all about he exclaimed, “Classical Theism!” But Sproul’s commitment to classical theism was foundational to his defense of the faith as well, which explains why Sproul was so committed to classical apologetics.
Why did Sproul move away from Van Til’s presuppositional apologetics to classical apologetics instead? In this episode Matthew Barrett and Stephen Nichols go back in time to trace Sproul’s journey. Along the way, Nichols, who knew Sproul as a friend, shares personal stories to help clarify the heartbeat of Sproul’s legacy.
