Archive for the ‘James Anderson’ Category

I really do appreciate the interviewer’s ministry.  Marlon Wilson runs The Gospel Truth a show that hosts many theological debates; I don’t know anyone that has gotten such a wide group of people to debate theology and is himself Presuppositional in his apologetics.  You can catch his channel here.  Here Marlon Wilson interviewed James Anderson for his church’s midweek fellowship.

The person being interviewed is James Anderson, I’ve shared resources and interviews featuring him on my blog in the past but a quick run down: He 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?.

Some of the discussions include what is Presuppositional Apologetics, is Presuppositional Apologetics against evidence (spoiler: its the opposite!), how Anderson got into apologetics, etc.

Here’s the interview:

James N. Anderson. David Hume.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, December 2, 2019. 160 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

In a 1999 poll conducted by the British based Sunday Times the person voted as the “Greatest Scot of the Millennium” was the philosopher David Hume.  Unfortunately Hume’s philosophy wasn’t just unbiblical but many times Hume was deliberately anti-Christian.  Over the decades of evangelism, engaging in apologetics and taking courses in philosophy and religion I’ve heard people cite Hume or use argument for naturalism that came from Hume.  So who was Hume, what did he teach and what does a Christian philosophical critique of Hume looks like?  This book does an incredibly good job answering these questions.  The author James Anderson is an excellent example of a Christian scholar who engages in philosophy, theology and apologetics and here in this book he delivers the good.  This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the four volumes I have read (this work and the ones on Aquinas, Marx and Richard Dawkins) currently this one is my favorite one.

James Anderson. Why Should I Believe Christianity?.  Ross-Shire, UK: Christian Focus Publications, July 20th 2016. 240 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Looking for an apologetics’ book on why believe in Christianity that would be biblically sound in its doctrine and also clear and reasonable in its worldview analysis?  This book might be for you.  Written by a professor of philosophy and theology and Christian Apologetics at Reformed Theological Seminary this book presents arguments and reasoning from someone that is quite capable and qualified to discuss the veracity of the Christian worldview.  I also like how the author’s presentation is shaped by Presuppositional apologetics!

Dr. James Anderson is a Christian theologian, philosopher and apologist who teaches at Reformed Theological Seminary.  I appreciate the fact that he’s a Presuppositionalists and has written many scholarly journal articles in addition to his wonderful interactive book  which I have reviewed on this blog in the past.

I was glad to hear that Ligonier Ministries has given him the opportunity to speak at their 2016 National Conference.  This is wonderful and somewhat of a surprised for myself, given how RC Sproul doesn’t necessarily think highly of Presuppositional apologetics.

Below is the video of Dr. Anderson’s presentation.  It is under 20 minutes in duration so worth the watch.

If you enjoyed it, again I would recommend you to consider his book “.”

The blog True Forms (http://trueforms.wordpress.com) used to have a popular post titled “Ultimate Collection of Free Presuppositional Apologetics Lectures” that was heavily promoted on Social Media.  Unfortunately the blog owner has recently deleted his blog account.  Which is unfortunate if you are looking for great lectures on Presuppositional apologetics online.

I’ve been digging around online to reconstruct that original list.  I have also decided to post the listing with further expansion of other lectures!  This is a work in progress.

Feel free to share this on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.
