June 2009 Tabletalkby Various
For more than thirty years, Tabletalk has existed as a magazine for laymen. Generally speaking, laymen receive either very little instruction in the weightier matters of the faith, or the instruction is far too academic, thereby making the material largely inaccessible to average person. This is the reason Tabletalk exists — to bridge the gap between these two poles, to explain to the people of God important, biblical doctrines and events while admonishing them toward holy living.
For this reason, we will continue to focus on significant issues of the Christian faith, like, for example, the gracious work of God in salvation and the importance of His grace in seeing it through to the end. This is the theme of the June 2009 issue of Tabletalk, which intends to look at the parable of the sower as a means to encourage and exhort its readers to magnify the glory of God in redemption, while working hard to keep the Gospel they have heard in order to “bear fruit with patience” (Luke 8:15).
Contributers include R.C. Sproul along with Dan Doriani, Michael J. Glodo, Lane Keister, Robert Rothwell, Scotty Smith, R.C. Sproul Jr., Justin Taylor, and Gene Edward Veith. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
The 2009 Bible studies look at the apostle Paul’s life and thought in a study of the books the frame his career: Galatians, the very first letter he wrote, and 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, the last epistles to come from him.
