The August 2011 issue of Tabletalk interacts with classical literature, exploring various biblical themes littered throughout great pieces such as Moby Dick and The Lord of the Rings. From Victor Hugo’s portrayal of law and grace in Les Mis to the remarkable choice of Faust in Christopher Marlowe’s play The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, we investigate a variety of biblical themes found in each classic work. Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Tim Challies, Keith Mathison, Michael Morales, Iain Murray, Andrew Naselli, John Piper and R.C. Sproul Jr. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies with featured columns by contributors such as Nicholas Batzig and Anthony Carter.
The 2011 Bible studies engage in a detailed study of the Prison Epistles—Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon.
