For more than thirty years, Tabletalk has existed as a magazine for laymen. Generally speaking, laymen receive either very little instruction in the weightier matters of the faith, or the instruction is far too academic, thereby making the material largely inaccessible to average laymen. This is the reason Tabletalk exists—to bridge the gap between these two poles, to explain to the people of God important, biblical doctrines and events while admonishing them toward holy living.
For this reason, we will continue our ongoing series on the history of the church, which, in the July 2008 issue, focuses on the eighth century. While by no means intended to provide a complete history of this century, this issue of Tabletalk aims to present several of its highlights by exploring its historical, theological, and practical ramifications.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Howard Q. Davis, Bill Haynes, Susan Hunt, Henry Krabbendam, Robert Letham, Keith A. Mathison, Nick Needham, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Gene Edward Veith. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
The 2008 Bible studies examines the gospel of Matthew and the Redeemer who saves His people from their sins.
