  • Toward a Christian View of Economics by Albert Mohler

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2017

    Regrettably, many American Christians know little about economics. Furthermore, many Christians assume that the Bible has nothing at all to say about economics. But a biblical worldview actually has a great deal to teach us on economic matters. The meaning …Read More

  • True Success by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | January 2017

    Well done. Great job. Good work. As children, we loved to hear words of encouragement from our fathers, mothers, grandparents, teachers, and coaches. I fondly remember my father’s approving smile and my mother’s loving embrace when I did …Read More

  • Remembering the Future by Robert Rothwell

    FROM TABLETALK | December 2016

    Nobody said that raising children would be easy. My wife and I have to remember that quite frequently, some weeks more than others. With three children age six and under, our home certainly can be a crazy place. This morning …Read More

  • Growing Younger by R.C. Sproul Jr.

    FROM TABLETALK | November 2016

    I suspect it is a nearly universal phenomenon—we look in the mirror and wonder what happened. We are no longer what we once were. Worse still, we don’t recognize ourselves in what we have become. When we are young …Read More

  • The Context for the Sexual Revolution by Albert Mohler

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2016

    When we look at the sexual revolution, we must honestly ask, how did all this happen? As noted in previous essays, the sexual revolution did not emerge in a vacuum. Modern societies created a context for moral revolution that had …Read More

  • The Reformation Ideal of Marriage by Michael Haykin

    FROM TABLETALK | October 2016

  • The Most Solemn Mandate by R.C. Sproul

    FROM TABLETALK | September 2016

  • The Sexual Revolution and the Witness of the Church by Albert Mohler

    FROM TABLETALK | July 2016

    In the face of the sexual revolution, the Christian church in the West now faces a set of moral challenges that exceeds anything it has experienced in the past. This is a revolution of ideas—one that is transforming the entire …Read More

  • The Orthodoxy of Community by Burk Parsons

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2016

    The love language of all marriages is self-denial. When both husband and wife are consumed not with their own immediate happiness but with the happiness of one another, they will enjoy a happy marriage. The same is true for enduring …Read More

  • Submit to One Another by Owen Strachan

    FROM TABLETALK | March 2016

    Our world has a strange relationship with authority. We saw this in the “Occupy” movement of a few years ago. Formally, everyone had the same role, but inevitably, “leading voices” popped up and made sure the countercultural drum circles beat …Read More

  • Worldview at Home by John Tweeddale

    FROM TABLETALK | February 2016

    Christians have long viewed the home as the hub of life. It is a nursery for aspiring astronauts, playground for wannabe heroes, and sanctuary for weary but heaven-bound wayfarers. Home is a place for cultivating virtue through meandering conversations, large …Read More

  • Praying for Pastors’ Kids by Barnabas Piper

    FROM TABLETALK | August 2015

    Why exactly is it that pastors’ kids (PKs) need prayer? What makes them so special? Actually, nothing. They are just like all their peers—the same weaknesses, the same proclivity to sin, and made in the image of God, too. All …Read More

  • Why Fear Death? by Michael Rogers

    FROM TABLETALK | June 2015

  • How Do I Teach My Family? by Jon Payne

    FROM TABLETALK | May 2015

    Every Christian home is meant to be a school of Christ—a place of spiritual nurture, loving discipline, sound doctrine, and biblical piety. This is not a reference to Victorian-era portraits of the Christian family; it is the clear teaching of …Read More
