The theme of the March 2006 issue of Tabletalk is the Fundamentalist–Modernist Controversy of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. As the spirit of the Enlightenment embraced by modernists began to infiltrate churches and seminaries across America, the orthodox fundamentalists rose in opposition. The ensuing battle resulted in polarized ideas of what constitutes “Christianity,” denominational splits, and internal struggles that continue even to this day. This issue of Tabletalk, while by no means intended to provide a complete history of the controversy, will aim to present several of its highlights by exploring its historical and theological ramifications for today’s evangelicals.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with D.G. Hart, W. Robert Godfrey, John Piper, and R.C. Sproul Jr. Tabletalk features articles about topics central to the Christian faith and daily, in-depth Bible studies.
The 2006 Bible studies take a careful look at the book of Genesis.
