The February 2006 issue of Tabletalk is on the historical books of the Old Testament — from the conquest of Canaan to the post-exilic restoration. It is a sad fact that most Christian’s do not know their own history. As members of God’s family, it would be fruitful to understand His redemptive plans wrought through His people Israel. This issue of Tabletalk serves to remind Christians from whence they came and to where they are going in light of the Messiah’s inauguration of God’s kingdom on earth.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with Bryan D. Estelle, David M. Howard, Steven J. Lawson, Robert Rothwell, 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.
