  • The Worldwide Gospel by Jerry Bridges

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2008

  • Contextualize This (Africa Journal #3) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

  • Does the Church Know Her Commission? by Denny Burk

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

  • The Church in Africa by Peter Hammond

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2008

    An epic conflict is raging through-out Africa. It is the battle for the soul of a continent. Animism, communism, Islam, and Christianity are locked in a war of worldviews.  In some countries this conflict is visible and physical. Tens …Read More

  • Thirteen Souls (Africa Journal #1) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    One of my many weaknesses is that I don’t, at least in my heart, believe that missionaries have weaknesses. I see them as super-heroes. How wonderful they must be to leave the comforts of home and family to go and …Read More

  • The Old Mission Field by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2008

    Missionaries from Europe and America took Christianity to the ends of the earth and evangelized Africa and Asia. Now, as Christianity declines in the West, churches from the old mission field are the ones defending historic Christianity and are evangelizing Europe …Read More

  • Sheep, Wolves, Snakes, and Doves by John Piper

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2011

    When Jesus sends us to bear witness to Him in the world, He does not send us out as dominant and strong but as weak and seemingly defenseless in ourselves. The only reason I say “seemingly” defenseless is that it …Read More

  • The Holy Catholic Church (Africa Journal #2) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    One of the great blessings of my calling is that I am called to travel far and wide from time to time. Over the course of little more than a year, I have traveled to teach in the United Kingdom …Read More

  • A Lingering Obligation by Tom Ascol

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2008

    In 1792 a little-known shoe cobbler published a book in which he argued that the Great Commission remains a duty for every generation of Christians. Within two years the author, William Carey, left his native England and became a missionary …Read More

  • Ecclesiastical Myopia by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2008

    Perhaps the most remarkable statement I ever heard a man utter from the pulpit was: “He has a penurious epistemology, which tends to be myopic.” I was seated in the balcony of the church when that statement was made, and …Read More

  • The Magic Bullet by Sebastian Heck

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2010

  • A Holy Calling by Chris Donato

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2008

    A preacher once paraphrased a bygone theologian as a challenge to his congregation: “To convert one sinner from his way, is an event of greater importance than the deliverance of sub-Saharan Africa from the problem of AIDS.” He went …Read More

  • From Jerusalem, to All Nations, and Back Again by Fred Klett

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2010
