Death and disease affect everyone, even Christians. The October 2011 issue of Tabletalk explores the nature of death and disease from a biblical perspective, providing hope to those who trust in Jesus and encouraging believers to view these heinous effects of sin in light of God's revelation and promises. Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with John Blanchard, George Grant, Keith Mathison, John Piper, Robert Rayburn, Harry Reeder III, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Ken Tada. 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 Kevin DeYoung.
The 2011 Bible studies engage in a detailed study of the Prison Epistles—Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon.
