Staff Reviews

Each of us has 5 senses and a 3-pound brain. This is our only fundamental, basic equiptment for discovering, evaluating or knowing anything. At least, this is the position of the atheist-materialist. Yet how do we know our equiptment is adequate or even functioning properly? Ultimately, the best we can say is: my equiptment works because my equiptment tells me this is true. Circular reasoning! Well, Van Til is your best guide to this crisis - the problem of presuppositions, of our essential dependency and creaturliness - in view of Christianity, this book is often abstract but also accessible, and when read as intended it may have the effect of the Book of Psalms, the effect of doxology.

— From Adam


This book originated in Van Til's seminary syllabus in 1929. This went through many editions and was first published for use outside the classroom as a book by P&R in 1975. Since then, it has become a classic of apologetics theory and practice. In this edition, editor Bill Edgar adds an introduction and explanatory notes.
