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:

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.
