• Only One Way by Bruce Ware

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2008

  • The Faith of Joseph

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    The author of the epistle to the Hebrews justly includes Joseph in the company of the great men and women of faith among the Old Testament saints. But the event that chiefly exemplified Joseph’s faith to this sacred …Read More

  • An Infallible Map by Kevin Struyk

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2007

    I enjoy looking at maps. Not only are they helpful tools to navigate unfamiliar territory, they also provide a unique “big-picture” view from an omniscient vantage point. Do you ever wish there was a map available to show where your …Read More

  • The Faithful Endurance of Suffering by Keith Mathison

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2007

  • Jacob I Loved, but Esau Have I Hated

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2007

  • Our Daily Bread by Danny Wuerffel

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2007

    C. S. Lewis writes in The Problem of Pain that “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is his megaphone to rouse a deaf world.” I don’t imagine Lewis …Read More

  • Long December by Mark Dever

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    This month is a time for decisions. A year is ending, another is about to begin. We remember Christ’s decision to come to earth and take on flesh. The gatherings of families remind us of those nearest and dearest …Read More

  • Changing the World by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2005

    Pop culture is a sanitizing force. No, it doesn’t make the world a cleaner place. It just makes us all the more the same. We are a world awash in golden arches, swooshes, and the real thing. Because people …Read More

  • Pure Religion by Mark Dever

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

    The resurrection day of Jesus — the first Easter — was no merely private experience of Jesus. In space and time, the body of Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified, dead, and buried, was raised to life again. Amazing! And what else …Read More

  • A Life of Faith by Mark Dever

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2005

  • No Pain, No Gain by Mark Dever

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2005

  • The Author of Faith by Sinclair Ferguson

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2004

    My last contact with the late Professor John Murray — to whose writings and influence I, like many others, owe a lasting debt — was particularly memorable for me, partly because I asked him a question to which he gave the answer …Read More

  • The Freedom of Fear by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2004

    As we have just seen on Friday, Cain offered grain faithlessly. His sacrifice was meant to appease. His concern was to placate the demands of his Creator. Homage was a trivial thing to him, a mere formality to be dispensed …Read More

  • The Wisdom of Faith by Douglas Kelly

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2004

    Forbes magazine features the four hundred most wealthy families in America each year. Those who make “the top four hundred” constantly change, according to their abilities in making and investing money. Being listed in this group is a measure of …Read More
