• Growing Younger by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2016

    I suspect it is a nearly universal phenomenon—we look in the mirror and wonder what happened. We are no longer what we once were. Worse still, we don’t recognize ourselves in what we have become. When we are young …Read More

  • Justification by Faith Alone by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2016

    God is incomprehensible. But He can be known. How do we reconcile these two truths? By understanding our terms. The doctrine of the incomprehensibility of God does not suggest that we can know nothing about Him, merely that we cannot …Read More

  • Everyone Is a Churchman by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2016

    It is no surprise that a culture with a low view of theology would in turn have a low ecclesiology (doctrine of the church). The theos, after all, is rather tightly bound together with the ekklésia. Dismiss one and you …Read More

  • Jesus’ Brother and Mine by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2016

    Our sins leave scars. First, they not only wound others but hurt us, damage us. Then, by His grace, and by His scars, they are healed. They are forgotten by the One who knows all things, the beginning from the …Read More

  • The Hard Book by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2015

    I do not, in the least, disagree with the editors’ decision this month to address a series of hard sayings of Jesus. In fact, I think it a good decision. Years ago, when I was actively involved in planning Renewing …Read More

  • The Bible Story by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2015

    A friend of mine has been known to encurage me to produce my own study Bible. Happily, his vision for my study Bible isn’t quite the mammoth undertaking that putting together a real study Bible is. He suggests that …Read More

  • Room 101 by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2015

    There is a simple enough test to see if someone has actually read George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. All you have to do is utter the words “Room 101” and look to see if the person shudders. Those who have …Read More

  • A Whole New World by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2015

    I’m not the world’s best shopper, and he may well be the hardest man in the world to shop for, and so I cringe each year as Father’s Day, Christmas, or my father’s birthday approaches. This …Read More

  • You Shall Not Make for Yourselves a Carved Image by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2015

    For all the differences that (rightly) separate us, we have much in common with Roman Catholicism. Rome affirms the great ecumenical creeds of the first millennium. She affirms the Trinity as well as the virgin birth and resurrection of Christ …Read More

  • News I Can Use by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2015

    A case could be made that what separates Reformed believers from the rest of the evangelical church is less the competing doctrinal perspectives of Calvinism versus Arminianism and more the competing perspectives on the value of doctrine. That is, we …Read More

  • Paradise Restored by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2015

    There are any number of ways to capture the glory of Eden. Because it is a garden paradise, we can focus on its bucolic nature. Bereft of thorns and thistles, fruitful and beautiful, it is the ideal location, designed for …Read More

  • The Vox Dei by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2015

    There’s something odd about the West’s shift from modernism to postmodernism. On the one hand, we would be wise to remember that the two are kin to each other. We can debate over whether they are father and …Read More

  • Rest Indeed by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2015

    Though it comes rather early in the story, I am convinced that Genesis 3:15 is not just the hinge of the Bible, but it is the very hinge of history. It is there that God responds to the serpent …Read More

  • May the Best Man Win by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2015

    It begins, I suspect, with a far too small view of the fall. There is plenty we lament about that dark day in history’s most beautiful spot. We know that sin brought division to Adam and Eve. The two …Read More

  • The Quick and the Dead by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2014

    There’s a reason why after we are introduced to someone new that we most often ask, “What do you do?” The truth of the matter is that our identity is rightly tied up in our labors. What we do …Read More
