  • An 11th Century Reformer

    from Tim Challies May 03, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In this month's editorial introduction to the May issue of Tabletalk--an issue that looks to the church of the 11th century--Burk Parsons writes about a little-known Christian monarch. "Queen Margaret of Scotland (c. 1045–1093) is barely mentioned in the annals of church history. Nevertheless, she was used of God mightily in eleventh-century Scotland. While the first crusade raged, while schism rent the church in the East, and while Anselm ministered in her homeland of England, Margaret was on her knees praying earnestly for her husband, the king of Scotland."

  • Killing Anger

    from Tim Challies Apr 29, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    In his column in the April edition of Tabletalk, John Piper writes this: "In marriage, anger rivals lust as a killer. My guess is that anger is a worse enemy than lust. It also destroys other kinds of camaraderie. Some people have more anger than they think, because it has disguises. When willpower hinders rage, anger smolders beneath the surface, and the teeth of the soul grind with frustration. It can come out in tears that look more like hurt. But the heart has learned that this may be the only way to hurt back." Keep Reading
