Choosing my religion rc sproul
Choosing My Religion by R.C. SproulSproul walks though the basics of the Christian Gospel, using the story of the Prodigal Son as a guide. Doctrine-wise, the book is strong and very good as you would expect from Sproul. But I found it to have other issues.
Its hard to give a Sproul book such a low rating, but I did so because the writing style is really distracting--it might have been less so if this was how Sproul usually communicated (a la William Willimon or something) , but it isnt.
This book is geared to a younger audience, teenage and college, and makes a strong effort to connect to these ages, however a) I found his style used for connecting to be distracting. In one sense, someone could say to me who cares, you arent the intended audience anyway. And this is a fair point. But that leads to the other problem which is b) the colloquialisms and expressions he uses to connect to teenagers strike me as dated (CD players are old news), or not especially savory. For example, there are a few places that in the face of skeptical inquiry he responds Are you nuts? And in a couple spots, he refers to unbelief as being brain dead which Im sure teenagers dont enjoy being called (even if it is true that by nature we are dead in trespasses and sins).
I really appreciate pastors and teachers who work hard to connect to their audience, especially teenagers and children, as they are often overlooked in Church. MORE connecting by pastors to these age groups needs to happen in confessionally Reformed churches. But this book just came across as trying too hard to appear to be in touch with teenage culture.
But who knows? Im not a teenager anymore, so maybe Im just not with it enough to see the value of this style (though I am with it enough to know this too is a dated expression.)
