Today I want to share a thesis that was completed for a Masters of Religion that was completed over at Reformed Theological Seminary.  It was completed last year in 2018.  It is titled “A Defense of Presuppositional Apologetics and Its Practical Application to the Public University Campus” and written by R. Shane Hartley.  I have found Presuppositional apologetics when properly understood and properly employed to be a very helpful and powerful apologetic.  I am also involved with college campus evangelism in which I will start back again next Lord willing (pray for me!).  So this thesis obviously caught my attention.

Point: An argument in the arsenal of Presuppositional apologetics is the Transcendental argument.  John Frame describes apologist Cornelius Van Til’s transcendental argument in the following matter with one of Van Til’s famous illustration:

I’m glad I’m the first to review this new book on Amazon!

John Frame.  Nature’s Case for God: A Brief Biblical Argument. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, December 12th 2018. 124 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Christian apologist and theologian John Frame has written this short book on a biblical natural theology.  If you have been studying theology for sometime now you might be familiar with this Reformed theologian.  I really enjoy John Frame for his discussion about theological method, apologetics methodology and the inter-relationship of doctrines and theological disciplines.  In this recent work Frame gives the topic of natural revelation a one volume treatment.
