Product Description

More than a simple Cook's tour of an influential apologist, Greg Bahnsen presents Van Til's theology as he actually wrote it, but with the added commentary necessary to bridge the gap between the perceived audience of the writer and the layman. Bahnsen doesn't oversimplify, but gives true commentary and context to spotlight the material in a way that even long-time Van Til readers will find refreshing.

Van Til didn't shy away from the difficult aspects of presuppositional apologetics (which uses Christianity as a starting point rather than nature or hard science), but embraced them, incorporating them into his presentation of the Christian worldview. Bahnsen molds much of the souce texts into a comprehensive treatise on Apologetics, and covers such varied ground as:

  • The place of Apologetics in Theology
  • The nature, necessity and aim of Apologetics
  • Apologetics in relation to Epistemology (the study of the limits and validity of knowledge)
  • Comparative apologetics
  • The complexities and failures of unbelief

    Although Cornelius Van Til (1895-1987) authored over 250 separate pieces of material, he never released an in-depth systematic overview. This volume distills his thought on presuppositionalism, giving space to fully illustrate this biblically-based type of apologetical argument.

      There is no doubt that Greg Bahnsen not only fully understood Van Til's apologetic, he attempted to fully apply it to every area of life. This book is his best and most cogent work. Bahnsen, better than anyone else, was able to communicate Van Til's system and help others to understand it and use it. I recommend getting his taped debates with Atheist Gordon Stein (now deceased), and Atheist Edward Tabash, in order to hear how the system is applied. Michael Martin and others have tried to develop an answer to Bahnsen's fine tuning of Van Til's system (the TA - Transendental Argument), but so far their efforts have proved pitifully futile. Take up and read! Be ready to give an answer, a reason for the hope that lies within you!
