• The Gospel for Muslims by Thabiti Anyabwile

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2011

    In 2005, I make my first trip to the Middle East. I was there to engage in a Christian-Muslim dialogue sponsored by a local university’s Muslim and Christian student associations. As far as we knew, it would be the …Read More

  • A Religious Explosion? by Ed Stetzer

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2011

    Yesterday, I had another conversation about New York City—this one with a reporter from the New York Times. “Do you see a surge in evangelical work?” was the gist of the interview. Many are asking — what is the impact …Read More

  • Evangelism and the Gospel by Donald Whitney

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2011

    It does little good to encourage people to discipline themselves to evangelize if they do not know the gospel. Try this experiment in your church, class, or small group to reveal one’s level of preparedness to share the gospel …Read More

  • A Relegated Gospel by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Dear Wormtongue, Before we get to the primary reason for our letter, we want to begin by commending you for the most excellent job you’ve done in your well orchestrated effort to convince your patient to keep his faith …Read More

  • Missions by David Robertson

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Our Dear Diabolos, It is clear that you have not quite got the hang of this temptation thing. Take the matter of what the enemy calls “mission.“ We understand what this is — to bring the dreadful news of His Son …Read More

  • Does the Church Know Her Commission? by Denny Burk

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2011

    Have you ever wished you could have a do-over? Have you ever looked back on a situation in which you know that you really botched the job and you just wish you could have another crack at it? That is …Read More

  • The Mystery of Christ by John Petersen

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2011

    I love a good mystery story from time to time, particularly an Agatha Christie work like the wellknown Murder on the Orient Express. It took a brilliant detective several days to reveal the murderer aboard that infamous train. What is …Read More

  • Not Return Void (Africa Journal #4) by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    Logistics intimidate me. Had I been present at the sermon that preceded the feeding of the five thousand I wouldn’t have heard a word. My mind would have been rather occupied with that one burning question — How are we …Read More

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

    I scanned my notes rather quickly, looking for problems. I would soon be preaching amidst a gathering throng of Kenyans. Was there an allusion somewhere in here to America culture? Were there idioms that would make no sense to these …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

  • 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 …Read More

  • The Magic Bullet by Sebastian Heck

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2010

    Within the space of forty-eight hours, one could tour more than a dozen of Europe’s most beautiful historic cathedrals, emblems of Christianity’s once ubiquitous presence. But for the people who live in Europe, and I speak as a …Read More

  • The Missing Motive by Eric Alexander

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2010

    I am notoriously bad at remembering anniversaries, and last year it was quite a surprise to discover that 2008 marked the fiftieth anniversary of my ordination to the Christian ministry. Not that the occasion was other than memorable. Indeed it …Read More

  • Evangelizing Our Children by E. Calvin Beisner

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2010

    God tells us to command our children to keep the way of the Lord (Gen. 18:19), which includes faith in Jesus Christ. We are to command our children to trust in Jesus for their salvation. We are to teach …Read More

  • Shutting Up the Kingdom by Richard Ganz

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2009

    When people are asked what they think most accurately characterizes the church, a majority replies, “Hypocrisy.” This is a sad commentary on the church. However, we have in many ways earned it. While my subject is missions and hypocrisy, one …Read More
