About two years ago Fred Butler posted on his blog “Nine Basic Bullet Points for Presuppositional Apologetics.”  Apparently someone has made that available on Youtube.  While the video shows the word but it does not read aloud the article, nevertheless I’m glad that this is available to read on another forum.  Plus there’s music.

George Zemek scholar

Readers to our blog will be familiar with the name George Zemek, a Calvinistic Dispensationalist engaged in Presuppositional apologetics that we have interviewed HERE and documented the table of content of his doctoral dissertation HERE.  His dissertation was on the exegetical and theological foundation for Presuppositional apologetics, with the title (you guessed it) of Exegetical and Theological Bases For a Consistently Presuppositional Approach to Apologetics.

I believe that it is a one of the best kept secret of exegetical support for Presuppositionalism that most Van Tillians aren’t familiar with due to Zemek’s Dispensationalism.   It ought to be better known beyond the immediate circle of Calvinistic Dispensationalists, especially with our current revival of Presuppositional apologetics and growing interests in Presuppositionalism’s exegetical and Scriptural basis.

Yesterday Fred Butler of Grace To You informs us in his personal blog that he took the time to scan Dr. Zemek’s dissertation and made it into a PDF!  That must have been some work since Zemek’s dissertation is big.

You can download the dissertation in PDF format if you click: Exegetical and Theological Bases For a Consistently Presuppositional Approach to Apologetics.
