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:
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.

You must have this book, if you are serious about trying to understand Van Tils thought.
It is most welcome . . . to have this massive volume of readings and analysis of [Van Tils] publications by his former student and a first-rate thinker in his own right. . . . This book will be of great benefit to mature theological students who wish to engage secular and other pagan ideologies in contemporary society.
Bahnsen does a masterful job of systematizing the central themes in Van Tils thought and follows them with carefully selected passages from Van Tils books, essays, syllabuses, articles, lectures and so on.

Buddy Boone5 Stars Out Of 5October 17, 2001Buddy BooneThere 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!
