April 2022 Tabletalk
The April 2022 issue of Tabletalk will feature articles on the theme of world missions and Reformed theology. In our day, the concept of world missions is the subject of much debate. Sometimes the work of missions is construed far too broadly, considering any good work done by Christians under the umbrella of missions. At other times, the work of missions is viewed far too narrowly, neglecting the importance of long-term discipleship in the New Testament. Moreover, the wider church often underestimates the power of the gospel, focusing on programs or cultural accommodation in ways that actually obscure Christ’s work. Thankfully, the Reformed theological tradition is full of resources that can help solve these problems and many others. However, caricatures of Reformed theology by non-Reformed Christians and an inadequate grasp of our theology, history, and practice even by those who profess to be Reformed often prevent us from making full use of these tools. This issue of Tabletalk will seek to help believers and their churches more faithfully engage in world missions by providing the biblical framework for missions, looking at the history of world missions in the Reformed tradition, and exploring both the theological underpinnings and practical outworking of world missions done in a manner that is faithful to Scripture.
Contributors include Craig Sheppard, Daniel R. Hyde, Michael A.G. Haykin, Sebastian Heck, Eric B. Watkins, Dustin W. Benge, Christina R. Fox, William VanDoodewaard, Barry J. York, Kevin D. Gardner, Dale Van Dyke, Aaron L. Garriott, Robert Ingram, and Kim Riddlebarger.
