Tabletalk Magazine, June 1996: Augustine of Hippo


Ligonier Ministries 1996


For more than thirty years, Tabletalk has existed to provide a substantive study tool for believers. Generally speaking, either laypeople receive very little instruction in the weightier matters of the faith or their instruction is too academic, largely inaccessible to the average person. This is the reason Tabletalk exists: to bridge the gap between the two poles; to explain to the people of God important biblical doctrines and events while supporting them in holy living.

Contributors include R. C. Sproul, Frank Farrell, John R. Franke, Richard Lints, Michael S. Beates, R. C. Sproul Jr., John Sartelle, D. A. Carson, Elisabeth Elliot, and Roy Bennett. Tabletalk features articles on topics central to the Christian faith and contains daily in-depth Bible studies.

Over the years, several awards have recognized Tabletalk for its excellence. Today, people all over the world read Tabletalk on a daily basis. Now, in the Logos Bible Software edition of Tabletalk, all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With the advanced search features of Logos Bible Software, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “conversion” or “Trinity.”

Praise for the Print Edition

Tabletalk has been a key ingredient in the diet of Christian’s 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
