This is an important caveat by Erik Wait

This work was written in 2002 and was originally put together for my own use and was not intended to be published or posted on my web site. Essentially it is a synthesis of my notes from Greg Bahnsen’s audio lecture series “A Seminary Course on Apologetics,” his posthumously published works Van Til’s Apologetic and his shorter introduction to Apologetics Always Ready, John Frame’s books Van Til: An Analysis of His Thought and Apologetics to the Glory of God as well as own original work. In editing this project I have also reworded some phrases in order to make them easier to understand as well as added dates and clarifying statements. Consequently, the reader should not think what follows is necessarily a direct quotation of Bahnsen’s lectures.

Here it is for your enjoyment!
