Columns from Tabletalk Magazine, August 2016

3 Min Read


The August issue of Tabletalk considers addictions. Both men and women are affected by addictions because of the fall. The root problem of addictions is that they reveal our idolatrous hearts. While there are differences in the various types of addictions, they all are a consequence of the darkness of sin. Thankfully, the Bible addresses addictions and gives us hope in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Here's a preview of what's coming up in Tabletalk over the coming months:

The Church

The September issue will help Christians discover the importance of the doctrine of the church by considering how it reflects the beauty and glory of God in Christ.

The Sixteenth Century

The October issue will consider the vast scope of the Reformation in order to give a greater appreciation not only of its history but also of the need to continue the work of the Reformation today.


The November issue will consider the biblical-theological theme of maturity. Maturity is a combination of wisdom, kindness, and endurance—a "growing up" in love.
