January TabletalkThe January edition of Tabletalk is out. This issue examines some of the most common hermeneutical and exegetical fallacies that are committed by those who study Scripture. All Christians have the right to study the Word of God, but all Christians also have the corresponding responsibility to avoid twisting its meaning. When believers misinterpret Scripture through the exercise of fallacious exegetical practices, the ministry and witness of the church is damaged. When we fall into these hermeneutical fallacies, we bear false witness concerning what God has said in His Word. By looking carefully at the most common hermeneutical fallacies, all Christians can be better equipped to rightly handle the Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15).

Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Daniel M. Doriani, Robert J. Cara, Douglas J. Moo, Andreas J. Kostenberger, Anthony J. Carter, R.C. Sproul Jr., Archie Parrish, James L. Harvey III, Ed Stetzer, and Guy Prentiss Waters.
