This is for a group of guys in my church with whom I am going over the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle. It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview. Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.
I thought the following questions might be helpful for other individuals and other small groups to facilitate discussions and learning. The following are questions for chapter 2 of the book. (For a discussion guide for the previous part of the book see this post on the Introduction and Chapter 1).
- Why is it that science in of itself will not resolve the origin debate? (31-32)
- What must we deal with in order for the origin debate to be rationally resolved? (32)
- Describe the Creation worldview. (32-33)
- Describe the Evolution worldview. (33-34)
- Can there neutral meeting grounds? Why or why not? (36-37)
- How can the debate over be rationally resolved? (37-42)
- What are some examples of self-contradictory worldviews? (37-38)
- What do we mean by “the preconditions of intelligibility?” (38-39)
- How do we summarize the ultimate proof of Creation? (40)
- What is knowledge and what is the problem with arbitrary beliefs? (41)
- What illustrations did you find helpful in this chapter?
