Ligonier Ministries is offering the August edition of its Tabletalk magazine for free as a digital download; you can download it here.
“This issue of Tabletalk considers persecution. Jesus warned us, “If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.” Christians have endured suffering throughout history. Yet Jesus told us to “take heart” for He has “overcome the world.” This issue ofTabletalk will explain what persecution is, how Christians have experienced persecution, what it looks like around the world, and what the future holds for believers. The issue will thereby give readers a good grasp of what the Bible means by persecution and how we should respond to it.
Contributors include R.C. Sproul along with, Tom Ascol, George Grant, Dave Furman, Owen Strachan, John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul Jr., Kevin Struyk, Barnabas Piper, Kelly Kapic, and Dan Iverson.”
