I have written a few years ago “Quick Thoughts on the self attesting nature of the Bible.”  I thought I add to that discussion on the self-attesting nature of the Bible and how Biblical Theology helps us crystalize how the Bible is itself self-attesting.

The Faithful Apologist Rethinking the Role of Persuasion in Apologetics

K. Scott Oliphint. The Faithful Apologist: Rethinking the Role of Persuasion in Apologetics. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Academic, February 22nd 2022. 224 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Want to read a biblical book on persuasion in the context of evangelism and apologetics?  This book is worth considering.  It is written by a professor of apologetics, K. Scott Oliphint.  Oliphint teaches at Westminster Theological Seminary and is also a Presuppositional Apologist.  I know some people have told me they think Presuppositionalists have no interests with persuading people but only to refute unbelievers; this book suggests otherwise.  I’m glad that a book on persuasion was written by someone who is a Presuppositionalist!

Immanuel Kant by Shao Kai Tseng

Shao Kai Tseng. Immanuel Kant.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, November 16th 2020. 232 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Have you heard of the philosopher Immanuel Kant?  Kant as a philosopher is hard to understand and yet Kant was such a watershed individual in philosophy.  Through his writings philosophy went from the trend of large speculation on the “big ideas” of God, freedom, morality, religion, etc., to the overall trend today of being interpretative and analytic, and dare I say “less ambitious” in its scope and aims.  Given Kant’s importance and the difficulties of interpreting him this book has been immensely helpful.  The author Shao Kai Tseng has done a superb job writing this book.  He’s given us a rigorous introduction to Kant from a Reformed standpoint.  A professor of philosophy, the author is also a Reformed Christian with an impressive academic background in philosophy and theology: His Master of Divinity is from Regent College, his ThM from Princeton Theological Seminary and his MSt and DPhil from Oxford. I appreciate that his writing is from a biblical worldview.

Note: This is a guest post since presently I am busy today teaching class online for seminary students overseas. This is by Cowboy Bob. His blog be found here and he runs The Question Evolution Project on Facebook here.

Throughout much of history, people have used watchtowers for various purposes. East Berlin had several (with one remaining) to alert guards of people trying to escape their socialist paradise. Towers were set up to watch for fires. See a movie about the cavalry in a Western movie and notice the towers to watch for attackers.

It was very common for cities and castles to have walls built to keep out marauders, and of course, those had towers as well. However, towers were not the only place for sentries and lookouts; they also walked on those thick walls.

Because I deserve it

“Wow, I sure had a rough week. I’m going to order out for some extra nice food because I deserve it.”

“After being subjected to hours of mindless cookie-cutter pop music, I’m going to listen to Alice Sara Ott play Grieg’s piano concerto. I really deserve that.”

“You’ve been doing a good job even though you had one of our inferior hosses to work with. Get yourself over to the remuda tomorrow morning and get a good one. You deserve it.”

“The people deserve to know how elected officials are spending their tax money!”

“That guy disrespected me and Imma hurt him ‘cuz he deserves it!”
