• Truth Exchange: An Interview with Peter Jones Article by Peter Jones

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2014 | John 7

    Tabletalk: What is the mission of truthXchange, and how did it begin? Peter Jones: On February 9, 2014, I watched the Grammys’ tribute to an event that occurred fifty years ago, when the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was nostalgic for me because it showed John Lennon at Quarry Bank High School in Liverpool, England, where we were close friends for five years. That same year, I came to the States for the first time. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. The culture was so religiously “Christian,” and, as a bonus, I … View Resource

  • Eastern Idolatry Article by Peter Jones

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2012

    C.S. Lewis gets many things right.

It intends, ever so subtly, without ever saying so explicitly, to grind the gospel into the dustbin of history. The 1960s was an incredibly formative decade. In 1962, Mircea Eliade, the world expert on comparative religions, observed: “Western thought [he meant Christendom] can no longer maintain itself in this splendid isolation from a confrontation with the ‘unknown,’ the ‘outsiders.’” As if on cue, the “Fab Four” met the Maharishi and introduced the “wisdom of the East” to popular Western culture. In the same decade, the … View Resource

  • The Pagan Agenda of the Code Article by Peter Jones

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2006

    As I lecture around the world on the Da Vinci Code, a typical response is to tell me to relax, enjoy the book as a fun read of fiction, and move on. Let me say that it is indeed a “fun” read, that it is fiction — but like many works of fiction, it has a deep ideological agenda, suggesting that “relaxation” is hardly the appropriate response. But neither is panic or ignorance. Someone recently spoke about the debt we owe to heresy, because error opens up discussions about the truth — and no Christian can be against that! … View Resource
