Scott Oliphint apologist

Rev. Dr. K. Scott Oliphint (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is professor of apologetics and systematic theology at Westminster Theological Seminary.  He is a proponent of Presuppositional Apologetics which starts with a high view of the God of the Bible, Scripture and engages in apologetics at the level of worldviews.

He was recently on a show for the “Trinities Podcasts” which was loaded up online two days ago.  The topic: How Christianity Trumps Philosophy.  Readers should beware that not necessarily everything associated with “Trinities Podcasts” is orthodox although Dr. Oliphint who is being interviewed is himself orthodox.  Since our blog has a new wave of readers I would say if you are new to Presuppositional apologetics its better to start with .

Here’s the show as found on Youtube with further description below:

Christian theistic evidences Van Til second edition

Cornelius Van Til. Christian Theistic Evidences.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, February 29th, 2016. 288 pp.

There is a lot of misunderstanding today concerning the role of evidence in Cornelius Van Til’s apologetics which makes this book a valuable primary source for those who want to understand Van Til’s view.  I think understanding Van Til’s position is important whether one agrees with him or not.  This is especially relevant given the rising popularity of Presuppositional apologetics.  This particular volume is the second edition of the book and it has helpful footnotes with commentaries from the editor K. Scott Oliphint who is currently the professor of Presuppositional apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary (this is where Van Til taught at when he was alive).  In this review I shall look first at Oliphint’s contribution and then the rest of the book that was penned by Van Til.
