    I have just started receiving the Tabletalk magazine from Ligonier Ministries. So far I really like it. I just wodered if anyone else here reads it and what they think. Grace and Peace.:book2:

    I've been reading it for some time. I REALLY enjoy it & use it to my full advantage. I use the devotionals which I think are GREAT. Been going through Genesis since last year. Also the articles as great as they have exposed me to many other Reformed ministers that I might have never heard of. I highly recommend to anyone who is new to Reforemed theology. I learned about Owen, Warfield, Whitfield & Gresham Machen through it. I think RC has done a great job in putting the people together for it. I also like Burk Parsons column. I was really convicted reading his story how he walked away from a life of fame & $$ as a "musician" (I use that term loosely seeing he was with NSYNC & BackStreet Boys) to follow after God. I always imagined him to be some older guy so I was very convicted to learn he was so young. Kind of made me feel like I BETTER get with the program!! :book2: Anyways I love that magazine. I hope they keep up the good work. Currently I'm looking into re ordering back issues from 2005 & 2004 as my dad accidentally threw them out.

    Sproul is a good guy. I have always liked him, we actually have used some of his videos in our Sunday School.:up:

    Sinclair Ferguson and John Hannah are perhaps my favorite contemporary theologians.

    I've been getting Tabletalk for about 10 years now. I like it. It's not always the deepest material but provides a running Reformed commentary sustained over many years that continues to help me progress in knowledge. The articles in it are good but I tend to prefer Modern Reformation to the articles in Table Talk.

    It is good to sit things like that in the bathroom for some daily ponderings in those quiter moments of nature calling.

    What will they venerate next? Actually, wasn't it the loo in the monastery where he was reading when he hed his "tower experience?" He would already have left it by the time he had his own house.

    Guys,

    It's called "Table Talk", not Toilet Talk. ;)

    This is one of the reasons I bulk at any offers from people who are parting with their old magazines. Tis gross.

    Rich,
    Do you ever recall reading an article on the regulative principle of worship in those ten years? Or was your first experience to the RPW here on PB? Tabletalk is one publication I've not included in our 60 year RPW survey for the CPJ, simply because it is not indexed to find out. I have access to a full run but am not about to spend the time looking for the proverbial needle.

    I don't know Chris. My first experience with the RPW was definitely not here. I know I read about the RPW and EP in Modern Ref but I can't say for certain if Table Talk has ever covered it. I only have the past couple of years here with me in Oki so I can't check. You can always e-mail them and ask.

    Sinclair Ferguson Rocks!!!

    I believe that he's the senior pastor of First Presbyterian Church ARP in Columbia South Carolina.

    No problem. I actually needed to contact them anyway because I lost my January CD. I asked them if they had a list of all thee subjects for their back issues.

    He was teaching at Westminster in Dallas as of 2004 but perhaps he commutes.

    Didn't know they had CDs. I asked some months back about an index, but they said there was not such a thing.

    Amen to both of these. I receive both as well. Tabletalk is more devotional for me, but it does have some good depth to it.

    Who Publishes Modern Reformation?

    The Alliance for Confessing Evangelicals. It's a Mike Horton gig. If you only had one of the two I recommend Modern Reformation. They even let Anglicans contribute articles. ;)

    ;) How sweet of them, everyone should let the Church of the Proper Fork contribute!:coffee:
