Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, May 2012

from May 01, 2012 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

Tabletalk Magazine, May 2012The May edition of Tabletalk is out. This month’s issue addresses the subject of controversy. John Newton’s letter “On Controversy” provides a launching pad into the discussion, and the core of this issue extracts, explains, and applies the three major sections of the letter that he wrote to a minister preparing to engage another minister regarding orthodoxy. An additional two articles argue for the occasional necessity of controversy and direct us to the appropriate end of engaging in controversy: the glory of God. Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Sinclair Ferguson, Collin Hanson, Keith Mathison, Al Mohler, Robert Rothwell, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Justin Taylor. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith, and daily, in-depth Bible studies with featured columns by contributors such as John Piper and Scotty Smith.
