• Don’t Look Back by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2004

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I’ll admit I got taken in the first time. As a grade school child my conception of cool included too tight silk shirts and blue jeans with …Read More

  • Civilization & Its Discontents by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    Sometimes the lofty are rather low. Paul in writing to the Corinthians enjoins them, and therefore us, to “destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God.” Though the giddy optimism of our Enlightenment fathers has dimmed …Read More

  • The Dance of Life by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2004

    The fall of Adam and Eve is one of the stickiest theological wickets we encounter in the Bible. How could both of them, whom God had declared good, do bad? But there is a stickier wicket still, perhaps made so …Read More

  • Reckless Fervor by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2003

    One of the oddest things to hinder our prayers is fear. Many of us are reluctant to pray in front of others. We fear, I suppose, that those who are listening might be critiquing our prayers. That fear is both …Read More

  • With Heart and Mind by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2002

    Reformed folk have not earned a reputation for hearts overflowing with love. We tend to be the cerebral ones, very careful to dot our theological I’s and cross our philosophical T’s. Given our peculiar gift, it is no …Read More

  • A Matter of Death and Life by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2001

  • More Than an Exit by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2000

    Death has been on my mind of late. As I write, it is just days after Ligonier Ministries lost a friend and board member, Robert Fraley, in the plane crash that took golfer Payne Stewart. And in the last three …Read More

  • Won’t You Be My Neighbor? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 1999

    Yesterday I was in California once, Georgia once, Tennessee three times, and Virginia three times. It was a long day but not an unusual one. The great historian Paul Johnson, in his book Birth of the Modern, devotes a rather …Read More

  • How the Irish Saved Civilization by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    One of the most difficult elements in understanding God’s providence is understanding our obligation in our times. Consider the different responses of Joshua and Daniel concerning pagan rulers. Joshua killed them, Daniel served them, each with God’s blessing …Read More

  • One Day More? by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | April 1999

    I’ve never been a great science student. My interest in science is a byproduct of my interest in philosophy. I’ve noticed that the two often intersect, however unintentionally. Newton, with his fixed laws of motion, fueled, much to …Read More
