When your father is a world-renowned theologian, author of over 100 books, professor, pastor, and radio teacher you grow up in a world where not only does the Word matter, but words. This touching account of a loving father-son relationship highlights those conversations along the way that left an impression, that shaped the author. Through “table talk”—ordinary back and forth in the context of every day life—R.C. Sproul poured forth extraordinary theological wisdom into a broken vessel living an ordinary life. You are invited to listen in on those conversations, and to benefit from the wisdom of a father who loved his son, and loves His Son.

Endorsements & Reviews
“Christians are a work in progress. We are all broken and require redemption, and not just when we ‘first believe.’ Stories like R. C. Jr.’s show us the path to healing and restoration—and often, how that path guides us along so that we understand God’s truth as it really is, especially when shared with compassion through the touch of a loved one, one like R. C. Jr.’s father. Theirs is an amazing story of a wise father and a searching son who both understand the power of Grace to change and heal. I highly recommend this wonderful book!”
—Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO, Joni and Friends
“Growing Up (With) R.C. is an honest and insightful book. The love that R.C. Jr. has for his father emanates on every page. R.C. lifts the curtain, so to speak, to share some personal and powerful lessons he learned from his father. As the son of an influential Christian leader, I resonate deeply with his desire to honor his father, but also to share ‘insider’ stories and truths the world may not know. Like the experience of R.C. Jr., my dad was always engaging me in conversation to help me learn to think theologically about all areas of life. There were many times reading the book that I laughed out loud and thought, ‘He’s describing my dad!’ I hope this book gets the wide readership it deserves.”
—Sean McDowell, Biola University Professor, Speaker, Author
“R.C. Jr. has long been my friend and yokefellow. His father has long been my mentor and hero. Reading the story of their lives together made me laugh and cry, rejoice and repent. Somehow, R.C. Jr. writes with an exceedingly rare combination of Gospel humility and Gospel boldness. This book is not to be missed. Coram Deo!”
—Dr. George Grant, pastor of Parish Presbyterian Church in Franklin, TN and author of The Micah Mandate and Grand Illusions
“This is a frank and honest account of the author’s relationship with his famous father. He aptly describes it as the ‘table talk’, the account of what his father was like not at church or at conferences but in the intimate family setting of the home. It is a very readable account that presents a different perspective on his father and celebrates the gospel that they both shared.”
—Dr. A. N. S. Lane, Professor of Historical Theology, London School of Theology
