Until now nearly everything written about Van Til has come from either uncritical followers or unsympathetic critics. This volume, presented in celebration of Van Til's 100th birthday, combines deep appreciation with incisive critical analysis of the renowned Westminster apologist's ideas. John M. Frame offers warm personal reflections on Van Til's life and a close examination of his thought, including his interaction with prominent figures in the Reformed, evangelical, and secular communities.
This brilliant analysis of the thought of Van Til combines praise, clarification, and constructive criticism. Both warm and incisive, it promotes appreciation of Van Til and refinement of his ideas.
John M. Frame (A.B., Princeton University; B.D., Westminster Theological Seminary; M.A. and M.Phil., Yale University; D.D., Belhaven College) is the J. D. Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and the author of many books, including the four-volume Theology of Lordship series.
