Three years ago I posted Christmas wish list in Presuppositional Christian Apologetics.
In light of the fact that Black Friday was yesterday I thought I add a few more books to that lists of books I recommend if you are looking for gifts for those who are curious about Presuppositional apologetics or getting more into it. Of course, if it’s someone who is intensely into Van Til’s apologetics, it doesn’t hurt to ask whether or not they have it already.
Here are a few that I think I can recommend with links to my review:
1.) Christian Apologetics by Dr. Cornelius Van Til
Note: For some reason I really enjoyed the format of this book more than Van Til’s Defending the Faith.
Note: Found this helpful for apologetics discipleship with the format though not without concern (see comment section of the review).
Note: Good sketches of what apologetics and evangelism conversation with a Van Tillian bent looks like with different folks.
Note: This spiritual biography is authored by a professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary. A good devotional and spiritual read for an apologist, to keep one’s life spiritually balance and not just “head knowledge.”
Note: 25th Anniversary edition. I think it’s important for Presuppositionalists to also really know their Scriptures and their Old Testament Messianic prophecies pointing towards Jesus Christ. If one claims to be driven by Scripture in apologetics (where the Word sets the framework for apologetics) I think it’s also important to know how the Old Testament prophesied about Jesus as the Messiah.
