• The Year of Our Lord by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2005

    The world is half full of half-empty thinkers, and I am one of them. Puddleglum is my patron saint. And nothing exposes the vast expanse of emptiness in the top half of the glass like listening to the evening news …Read More

  • The War to End All Wars by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2005

    It has long been my habit, which is fitting for the abiding theme of my column here, whenever I speak somewhere, to remind those to whom I am speaking of our historical context. Context is everything. My goal isn’t …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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • Kingdom by James M. Hamilton, Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2011

    What is the kingdom of God? The answer cannot be reduced to a word study of the term kingdom. That would be a helpful exercise, but the Bible describes the kingdom even when the word is not used. Any kingdom …Read More

  • Songs from Exile by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | April 1997

    In exile the people of Israel faced the question: “How do you sing the Lord’s song in a strange and foreign land?” The question is similar to that faced by contemporary American Christians. Ours is a spiritual exile as …Read More

  • The Kingdom is Now by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2012

    I am deeply grateful to my Old Testament professor. Though I was young and foolish while in seminary, I have, by God’s grace, been growing less young and less foolish over time. I used to argue with him about …Read More

  • Blood in the Streets by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2013

    How prone we are to miss the drama. The tyranny of the urgent, the plainness of our patterns, and our propensity to look inward rather than outward all push us to regard our callings, our surroundings, and our souls as …Read More

  • Ordinary Means by Michael G. Brown

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2013

    Nowadays, ordinary is a bad word. In a culture that is constantly looking for the next big thing, who wants what is ordinary? We want the spectacular. We want what is bigger, better, and exciting. We desire extraordinary gadgets, extraordinary …Read More

  • Dream a Little Dream by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2014

    It is a great thing to dream great dreams. A small vision of God and His kingdom will birth a small vision of the future. Jesus, who has already overcome the world, promised His followers that they would do greater …Read More
