It seems to me that most of the objection I’ve heard against Presuppositional Apologetics is a misunderstanding of this method of apologetics.  Either it is that or there’s a deliberate misrepresentation.  But I believe once one finally understand Presuppositional Apologetics…well the picture captures it well.

In this post I want to deal with a blog post by someone that have posted against Presuppositional Apologetics.  I want to be even more narrow in my focus to point out how sometimes objections against Presuppositional Apologetics seems to be quite appropriately described as schizophrenic. To avoid distraction I’m not even going to deal with the misrepresentations of Presuppositionalism but I am going to look only at what the guy assumes and show how it is internally incoherent within his own words–let alone whether his critique truly refutes what Presuppositionalists really believe.

One of the men that have been influential in shaping my Christian thought life is John Frame.  Reading his work has been a delight and an experience of worship of God for His wisdom, glory and splendor.  His writings has helped me to think more clearly, biblically, and logically.  Since this is God’s World that we live in I think what I got the most from John Frame than other theologians is the hunger to see the beauty of the inter-relationship of…everything.  Doctrines relate to other doctrines.  Areas of philosophies need and presuppose other areas of philosophy.  There’s inter-relationships of academic disciplines.  There’s a relationship between theology and life.  Its like a symphony; they all go together in harmony because of God’s Wisdom.  There’s an apologetic there with the beautiful coherence of the Christian worldview, of God’s revelation between the Word and World.  Which is one of the aesthetically pleasing aspect of a robust Presuppositional apologetics.  But its more than an apologetics, it has made me live my life seeing living colors of God’s World.

What follows below are all four volumes of John Frame’s Theology of Lordship with links to my reviews that explains further why I recommend them.  I bought one volume at a time as a young seminarian without a lot of money, with the goal that after graduating I would be able to read them.  Then I slowly read 5-10 pages a day every morning and finished it.  They are doctrinal yet devotional, deep but “do-able,” deals with difficult topics but also demonstrate the deep dive of doctrines we see as more simple.
