Greg Bahnsen sitting down

I think one of the best Christian apologist of the last half of the last Century was Greg Bahnsen.  He was a skilled debater and lecturer on Presuppositional Apologetics!  We have shared many resources from him on our blog.  All you have to do is type in his name under search.

Here’s another one of him speaking on how to do apologetics based upon the teaching recorded in Acts 17:

Last week I posted .  Today I want to post another of Greg Bahnsen‘s debate and this would be his most famous one with atheist Gordon Stein.

Thanks to ReformedWiki who spent some time to improve the audio of this debate.   It is because ReformedWiki has improved the sound is why I’m posting this; some of you have followed this blog for years might know our top post for the decades of 2006-2010 and 2010-2020 was on this debate which you can download the MP3 here: Greg Bahnsen vs Gordon Stein Mp3.

The debate took place at the University of Irvine in 1985.  It is unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died rather young and unexpectantly.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian and wrote on many subjects from a biblical worldview while he was alive.

Below is the debate and also further information about Greg Bahnsen:

ReformedWiki spent some time to improve the audios for this famous debate between Christian apologist Greg Bahnsen vs Edward Tabash.  The debate took place in UC Davis in California back in 1993.  Unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died a few years after that debate.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian while he was alive.

Below is the debate and also further information about Greg Bahnsen:

If you follow my blog you know that my apologetics’ methodology is shaped by Philosopher and Theologian Cornelius Van Til who is the father of Presuppositional Apologetics.  Who is Cornelius Van Til and what did he teach and why is he important?  Where do one begin with an introduction?  I think why I like him is not just only how there’s a lot of “bite” with this school of apologetics but also Van Til’s emphasis that our method of defending the faith must be biblical and not compromised.  Here’s a podcast discussion about the Van Til from Reformed Forum:

Here’s a nine minute video clip of Bahnsen speaking on the problem of Relativism and how relativism refutes itself:

I love the amount of books from various publishers at the Shepherd’s Conference.

Here are the solid biblical books I recommend from the Conference that are deals but they fly below the radar of being publicized like in the Conference’s bulletins.  Note these books can be purchased online as well and I have linked them online in case they are no longer available.  Also I have linked to my book reviews.

A lighthearted post.

I often get asked about which book I recommend as an introduction to Presuppositional apologetics.  I thought I make a meme of that.

I’m always ready to recommend Always Ready by Greg Bahnsen.

Greg Bahnsen was a disciple of Cornelius Van Til, the father of Presuppositional apologetics.  He’s done a lot to make Presuppositional apologetics understandable and to apply it.

You can check out my review of his book by clicking here.
