Publisher's Description

Must a person accept Christianity on faith alone, or is there a reasoned defense for being a Christian? The authors of this book hold that Christianity is eminently reasonable. The primacy of the mind in the Christian faith can be affirmed without denying the importance of the heart. This book embraces reason without rationalism, personal love without personalism, faith without fideism is our capacity to love Him. The book is divided into three parts. Section I is a prolegomenon dealing with the problems and methods of apologetics. Section II develops the theistic proofs and authority of Scripture. Section III is given over to a critique of presuppositionalism in apologetics, particularly with reference to the thought of Cornelius Van Til. Classical Apologetics will help the thoughtful Christian understand his or her faith better, and it will provide more solid grounds for sharing this faith with others.

    This book is ideal for those at an intermediate level of understanding Christian apologetics and the theological/philosophical issues bound up with it. Many students of Van Till will find this volume a hard read due to the pull no punches tone of the authors, which is to be understood as a response to decades of criticism coming from Van Till himself. For that reason, it seems to me, many presuppositionalists havn't even read the entire book and trust that it would be a waste of their time. What is lacking is a more thorough introduction to presuppositional apologetics which you will have to glean from it's advocates. However, the entire system is dealt with throughout, but it will be somewhat difficult to grasp because of the lack of a systematic reference point. If any truly desire to understand how classical apologetics proceeds and the differences between these two schools of thought, this book is for you. I searched and found plenty of blatant dismissals and skepticism but could not find a single intelectualy sound refutation of the critique contained in this book. God bless.
