The last weekend in September saw more than 1000 people gather in Pittsburgh for a conference put together by Ligonier Ministries.(#ligcon was the hashtag for the conference). My husband and I attended while visiting with friends in the area. The conference featured presentations by such Reformed notables as Burk Parsons, Stephen Nichols, Steve Lawson and Derek Thomas. Many of the talks were on topics dear to the hearts of Lutherans: Grace Alone, Scripture Alone, Faith Alone, for example. My husband said each presentation was a sermon, and they were not too difficult for the average layperson to understand.
,Ligonier Ministries was founded by the late teacher/theologian R. C. Sproul in Ligonier, Pa. 50 years ago. (It is now located in Orlando). Sproul, who died 4 years ago, began Ligonier as a teaching ministry which focused on small groups of students and grew to be a major force among American Protestants through publications, conferences and the Reformation Bible College. Following the lead of its founder, Ligonier remains committed to a high view of Scripture and the theology of the 16th century Reformation.
I would recommend Sproul’s books (there are many), and if you would like to learn more about Ligonier Ministries, follow the link below:
They sponsor several conferences a year in different areas of the country, and it is well worth the time to attend one. They also offer a variety of educational materials.
