James Anderson is an apologist that is truly a gift to the church today.  He goes against the sterotypes some assume that Presuppositional Apologetics are just not educated.  Anderson has written a book titled Why Should I Believe Christianity? which I reviewed here: Review: Why Should I Believe Christianity?.

Rooted in Revelation Podcast recently interviewed James Anderson.

Here’s the interview:

Pooh not a contradiction

Since October 2015 I have blogged responses to alleged Bible contradictions listed on the Skeptic Annotated Bible.  Apparently this week I hit a milestone: I have refuted over two hundred alleged Bible Contradiction!

Below is the listing of these posts:

I am reviewing this book for this weekend’s leisure reading review because Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  I hope to share more reviews from the reading I finished while I was on Vacation.

Valiant Ambition

Purchase: Amazon

Want to read a book on the American War of Independence and the infamous general Benedict Arnold and his relationship with George Washington?  This book might be for you!  Benedict Arnold was the general who betrayed the American cause and helped the British.  About eight years ago I read The Notorious Benedict Arnold by Steve Sheinkin and reading this book jogged my memory of what I previously learned about Benedict Arnold whether from the previous book or other readings and lectures.  Yet I still learned some new things about Arnold from the book.

Edited: I did enjoy this work but someone brought to my attention that the author’s politics is not something I support.What If I'm Discouraged in My Evangelism

Isaac Adams. What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism?  Wheaton, IL: Crossway, March 10, 2020.  64 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

Have you once love to share the Gospel but lately have not been sharing the Gospel to unbelievers?  Do you realize you might be discouraged with evangelism?  Is there any help from God through the resources of His Word and books based upon His Word?  In this booklet titled What If I’m Discouraged in My Evangelism? the author write pastorally to minister to those discouraged or have stopped evangelizing.  I thought this booklet was very helpful and packed a powerful punch despite the booklet’s size.  It is written in an easy to read matter and yet it was profoundly biblical and Gospel-centered.  This might be a booklet a believer might have to read more than once and during different seasons when they feel discouraged to share the Gospel with others.

The Impossibility of the Contrary by Greg Bahnsen

Greg Bahnsen. Against All Opposition: Defending the Christian Worldview. Powder Springs, GA: American Vision, May 2020. 254 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: American Vision

Looking for a book that teaches how to apply Presuppositional Apologetics?  Greg Bahnsen is one of my favorite Christian apologist and surprisingly most of his books are published after his death than when he was alive.  This latest book is published in 2021 by American Vision that is edited from the audio teachings of the last Greg Bahnsen from an apologetics’ conference during the 1990s sponsored by American Vision.  One might ask why another Bahnsen book on Presuppositional apologetics?  David Bahnsen, the son of Greg Bahnsen in the Foreword said it is his favorite book by his father (vii).  Reading David saying that made me want to read the book even more.  I thought this book is worth reading even if you read older published works by Greg Bahnsen since in this volume he does cover more refutation of false worldviews than some of the other books published pre-2020 and that’s a big plus for Bahnsen fans.  Please don’t think this book is just a repetition of materials in other books (there are of course some things that are constant).  Plus I think its always good to sharpen and be reminded of how Presuppositional Apologetics works and how is it applied; I don’t think this is going to be the only time I read this book especially when it comes to discipling others in apologetics. I also think for those new to Presuppositional Apologetics this book does give readers a good intro.

We hit a new milestone for our blog Veritas Domain: Sometime today September 18th at 4-5 AM Pacific Standard Time we had 2 million total views!  That’s the total of view since our blog began in September 2006 but with most of the hits taking place the last few years.

It was 7 months ago and one day to get to here from when we were at 1.9 million.  Took longer for this 100,000 than the previous years since it seems we have less hits than before.

bible_contradiction_resolved_who_named_beersheba

For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who named Beersheba?

Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Abraham

Therefore he called that place Beersheba, because there the two of them took an oath.” (Genesis 21:31)

Isaac

So he called it Shibah; therefore the name of the city is Beersheba to this day.” (Genesis 26:33)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

This is one of the books I finished while on vacation!  A weekend non-fiction fun read as a break from heavy theological reading: Because Pastors need a break also!  Haven’t done one of these in a while!

A History of Fort SumterPatrick Hendrix. A History of Fort Sumter: Building a Civil War Landmark. Charleston, SC: The History Press, March 4, 2014. 161 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Most people have probably have heard of Fort Sumter from their history book as the place where the Confederates fired the first shot that launched the Civil War but did you know there were battles and military operations concerning Fort Sumter and around Fort Sumter between the Confederates and the Union after the first attack?  This book examines Fort Sumter not just with the historically memorable artillery barrage by South Carolians against Union troops in the Fort but it also goes over the history of the founding of the Fort, the tension between South Carolina and the fort for decades leading up to the attack and also the history of the fort militarily after the fateful attack of April 12-13, 1861.  And it was an interesting book written by the author even for a general reading audience.
