Point: Some Christians engage in apologetics in a piecemeal fashion.  They give evidence here and there.  They refute an objection here and there.  They don’t see the importance of Presuppositional apologetics’ emphasis of going beyond the individual point and pursuing refutations at the level of worldviews.

Picture: Earlier this year I read a book on counter-terrorism titled Counterstrike by Eric Schmitt and Thom Shanker.  There was a conversation in the book that really stayed with me in terms of the FBI’s post-9/11 change of strategy against terrorism.  Instead of going after an individual they were now going after networks.  Here’s an excerpt from page 38 and 39:

History of Western Philosophy John Frame

John Frame. A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, October 23rd, 2015. 864 pp.

This year (2015) is one of John Frame’s most productive year in terms of the quantity and quality of books published.  For many the most anticipated book among them is probably A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.  The following is my review of this book.

If there is anyone today that is qualified to give a biblical evaluation and exposition of Western philosophy and how it shapes theology it would be John Frame.  This book is the result of the author’s experience with teaching and writing on philosophy, theology and apologetics over the last few decades.  Like other works by Frame I appreciate his commitment to Scripture and the Christian worldview.  At the same time Frame is knowledgeable of philosophy.  Frame is a great model of a Christian scholar:  He is charitable but does not shy away from refuting error.  All this contribute towards making this work a great book.
