Tabletalk Magazine, September 2006: Proud Mediocrity


Ligonier Ministries 2006


The September 2006 edition of Tabletalk focuses on the theme of mediocrity within our society. Reflecting on the ramifications of worldly standards and norms within the church, Tabletalk presents comprehensive articles on the intended attitudes, work ethics, and decisions expected of us as Christians.

Contributors include R. C. Sproul along with Burk Parsons, George Grant, Chris Donato, Robert Rothwell, Derek W. H. Thomas, Warren A. Gage, Greg Barolet, Geoff Stevens, John Sartelle, 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 2006 Bible studies take a careful look at the book of Genesis.

Praise for the Print Edition

Tabletalk has been a key ingredient in the diet of Christians conscious of their spiritual vitality.

—Michael S. Horton

Month by month, Tabletalk represents an oasis in a desert of false spirituality, mindless Christianity, and vapid conviction. Tabletalk represents theological rigor, biblical Christianity, and authentic Christian devotion. It is an antidote to the world of superficial Christianity. Read it and grow.

—R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

Tabletalk has been a wonderful resource in my own daily walk with the Lord.

—Ravi Zacharias
