  • God is Light by Ken Jones

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2010

  • Praying with the Patriarchs by Derek Thomas

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2006

  • Glory by John Currid

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2011

  • Flesh and Spirit by Andrew Naselli

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2014

  • The Prodigal Father by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2012

    When I served as editor in chief of Tabletalk magazine, I committed my share of gaffes. I received more than my share of sweet-natured but school-marmish notes about why this semicolon should have been a colon, or why further was …Read More
