The purpose of this collection of essays is to set in the foreground the necessity of exegetical and theological foundations for any Reformed, Christian apologetic. A Reformed apologetic is only Reformed to the extent that its tenets, principles, methodology, etc. are formed and re-formed by Scripture. It is our hope that this book will demonstrate the necessity of the truth of Scripture, and the implications of that truth, for apologetics.
This collection of essays sets in the foreground the necessity of exegetical and theological foundations for any Reformed, Christian apologetic. A Reformed apologetic is only Reformed to the extent that its tenets, principles, and methodology are formed and re-formed by Scripture. Here, noted theologians show the necessity of the truth of Scripture and the implications of that truth for apologeticsspelling out more clearly the need for, and the beauty of, an apologetic surrounded by the rich truths of the Reformed faith.
But to suggest that this volume is only an attempt to shore up the missing exegetical basis for presuppositional apologetics would not do it justice. It is that and so much more . . . This appendix ought to be required reading for anyone interested in either apologetics generally or Van Til's contribution in particular.
This volume is an excellent exposition of the Reformed apologetics of Cornelius Van Til . . . Both Reformed and non-Reformed Christians will profit from this book.
Revelation and Reason is notable, even remarkable, in its interdisciplinary thrust. These essays span biblical theology as well as systematics, and include works on historical theology (the Theologia Naturalis of the Reformed Orthodox and the Westminster Standards are both related to the apologetic task), hermeneutics, and even a philosophical excursus on logic.
