  • The Place of God’s Disfavor

    from R.C. Sproul Apr 03, 2011 Category: R.C. Sproul

    The Place of God's DisfavorIn recent days, the evangelical church has been rocked by Rob Bell’s open questioning of the doctrine of hell. Dr. Sproul answers those questions in a forthcoming book, Unseen Realities: Heaven, Hell, Angels and Demons. In the following excerpt from the book, Dr. R. C. Sproul strongly affirms that hell is a biblical concept and a very real place. Unseen Realities, which is jointly published by Christian Focus Publications and Ligonier Ministries, will be released in the United Kingdom in May and in the United States in July. Keep Reading
  • Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God?

    from R.C. Sproul Jr. Apr 03, 2011 Category: Articles

They are instead essential attributes; they define who He is. Move away from that definition and you move away from the true and living God. Keep Reading

  • The End of Soap Oprah

    from Tim Challies Mar 29, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The passing of the Oprah Winfrey Show is surely worthy of being described with that most overworked of clichés, as 'the end of an era.' Except, of course, it is not the end of an era so much as the morphing of Ms. Winfrey’s career into a new form. It is hard to imagine that the public has seen the last of her, and the values and culture that her show represented are here for the foreseeable future. Keep Reading
