• God’s Other Kingdom by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2007

    We often talk about how God is “sovereign” over all things. The term has to do with God’s providential control over His creation — that is to say, everything that exists — and, in different contexts, with His action in …Read More

  • The More Things Change by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2008

    It was a wise man who first noted that there is nothing new under the sun. Sadly, Solomon seemed to sigh his way through this observation, wistfully longing for something new. We, if we were wise, would rejoice in this …Read More

  • Put Off and Put On by Jerry Bridges

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2008

    One of the principles of Christian growth is called the “put off and put on” principle (see Eph. 4:22–24). Behind the principle lies the fact that there are always sinful attitudes and actions we need to put off …Read More

  • The Blessed Rich in Spirit by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2008

    There is real poverty in the world, more than we would care to admit. Jesus, after all, told us that the poor would always be with us. But just as all Israel are not Israel, so all the poor are …Read More

  • How the Kingdom Comes by Joel Beeke

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2008

    Matthew 13 presents a priceless display of some parables of Christ and also gives His reasons for using this device in His teaching ministry. Best of all, it offers two examples of Christ’s own interpretation of His parables. They …Read More

  • True Greatness by Tom Ascol

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2008

    As Jesus approached His final week leading up to His crucifixion, He spoke plainly to His disciples about the events that were about to unfold in Jerusalem. He wanted them to know that the horrific things that would happen to …Read More

  • Believing God by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2008

    We live in an age of spin and propaganda. We no longer weigh careful arguments and reach our conclusions judiciously. Instead, we inhabit what one cultural critic called a “sensate culture.” We do not think, we feel. We do not …Read More

  • The Coming Kingdom by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2009

    The world is full of hypocrites, and the solution to this problem is twofold: If you are more modern, you deal with the gap between your obedience and what you pretend to be by trying harder to be good. You …Read More

  • Be Still (and know that you’re loved) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2010

    The children of God are rather different from the children of men. We have been reborn by a sovereign God. They have not. We have been redeemed by a sovereign God. They have not. We are being remade by a …Read More

  • The Bravest & Newest World by Andrew Davis

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2010

    As human imagination conceives of the future, it tends to envisage either dreams or nightmares. The dreams live in the hearts of idealists who suppose that human ingenuity is sufficient to craft a perfect world. The nightmares torment the minds …Read More

  • Something New Under the Sun by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2010

    Imagine, if you would, that you are the most powerful person in the world. Now imagine that you are also the richest person in the world. Would your life be fundamentally different? Would everything that is now ordinary about your …Read More

  • Taking Captive All Things by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2010

    Not too long ago my family and I were eating at a local restaurant known for its home style southern cuisine and quaint family atmosphere. As we were leaving, I couldn’t help but notice a family sitting together, and …Read More

  • The One-Two Punch by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2010

    The one thing I want you to be certain to do is finish reading this column and brush your teeth every evening. I trust at least two things strike you about this opening sentence. First, it’s a rather odd …Read More

  • Can Snakes Talk? by Derek Thomas

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2006

    With the possible exception of John 3:16, no verse in the Bible is more crucial and definitive than Genesis 3:15: “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall …Read More

  • What If God Were One of Us? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2006

    It is an old temptation, to construct images of Jesus out of celluloid. Christians have fought for and against it, and will likely do so for generations to come, until the next medium seeks to supplant the Word. We have …Read More
