  • The End of Death by Daniel Doriani

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2000

    SIGNIFICANT EVENTS HAVE PHASES. IN SPORTS, athletes first build skill and endurance, then they play the game, and finally interpret the results, celebrating victory or learning from defeat. Banquets also have phases. After we savor the meal itself, we linger …Read More

  • Together in Suffering by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2013

  • A Hopeful Offense by John Starke

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2012

    In my neighborhood, there are almost thirty Jewish synagogues. These congregations include Reformed, Orthodox, and Hasidic Judaism. And, of course, our city is full of secular Jews who have long left any traditional form of their faith. So, on any …Read More

  • Humiliation to Exaltation by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2005

  • Christ Alone by Joel Beeke

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2012

  • In Christ by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2013

  • Not One Of, but the One by Kevin DeYoung

    FROM TABLETALK | April 2011

  • The Supremacy of Christ by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2004

    I wonder if it is proper to have a “favorite” book of the Bible. The idea scratches like fingernails on a chalk-board. What would induce us to prefer one portion of the Word of God to another? It would seem …Read More

  • Christmas According to the Angels (Part 2 of 3) by R. Fowler White

    In our first installment in this series, we learned that the Gospel birth announcements of the angels brought “good news of great joy” to those humbled by sin, suffering, and death. In this our second installment, we focus on two …Read More
