    FROM TABLETALK | February 2012

    Tabletalk: Evangelical Christians took center stage in American politics during the years when the Moral Majority was prominent. Was that a good thing or a bad thing for the Church? Why? Cal Thomas: As Ed Dobson and I wrote in …Read More

  • The Challenge of Christian Journalism by Collin Hansen

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2012

    I am trained as a journalist. And I’m trained as a preacher. You might be surprised to learn there’s significant overlap between these callings. Both teach by distilling complicated concepts about how the world works. Both herald news …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

  • Liberty vs. Law? by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2005

    I have often heard people define liberty as the ability to do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it. Although such a definition may sound good on the surface, it more accurately defines anarchy than it …Read More

  • Farmers and the Rest of Us by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2009

  • Reflecting the Art of God by Michael Card

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2006

  • The Moral of the Story by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2004

    Everybody loves Jesus. Marxists love Jesus, because He was such a radical revolutionary. Unitarians love Jesus, because He befriended the social outcasts. Liberals love Jesus because, well, because He was liberal. Even some conservatives love Jesus, because He was so …Read More

  • At Least I’m Honest by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2008

    Every culture and subculture has its own taboos. Not all of them are the same, however. Given that we are all human, how can we explain the divergence of cultural standards? Why is it that one culture will find adultery …Read More

  • No Accounting by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2005

    There’s no accounting for taste. Or to put it another way, the taste has reasons that reason knows not of. We like what we like, and we don’t like having to explain it. Which is why postmodernism fits …Read More

  • A Depraved New World by Gene Edward Veith

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2005
