Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, April 2015
The April issue of Tabletalk is out. This issue will consider shame. Shame isn’t just a feeling; rather, men and women have true shame before God objectively and positionally. They’ve experienced this shame since Adam and Eve found themselves naked in the garden of Eden. Shame has hounded each of us since these early days, and it’s pervasive in our culture. Despite this, the world often acts shameless when it should be ashamed. This issue of Tabletalk will seek to define and explain shame, how we experience it, and what we as Christians should do about it.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Jeremy Pierre, James Coffield, Andrew Davis, Duncan Rankin, Michael Lawrence, Jay Bauman, Anthony Carter, Mez McConnell, and Rosaria Butterfield.
