Today I want to share a thesis that was completed for a Masters of Religion that was completed over at Reformed Theological Seminary.  It was completed last year in 2018.  It is titled “A Defense of Presuppositional Apologetics and Its Practical Application to the Public University Campus” and written by R. Shane Hartley.  I have found Presuppositional apologetics when properly understood and properly employed to be a very helpful and powerful apologetic.  I am also involved with college campus evangelism in which I will start back again next Lord willing (pray for me!).  So this thesis obviously caught my attention.

What is this thesis specifically about?  In his introductory paragraph to his thesis Mr. Hartley wrote the following summary:

On the one hand some of the readers will say it is sad that a book like this is needed.  I agree.  But on the one hand I also know in seminary for some it is a spiritual cemetery because they saw the Bible as only academic knowledge and other problematic views.  For the record I had a great time in seminary with both my masters.  It was a great time of spiritual growth in life and in doctrines.

So a book like this is necessary.  And while it was written after I graduated and I have yet to read it, I’ve read enough positive review I can recommend it.  Fortunately it is not made available for free electronically for a short time: this weekend!

Here’s a doctoral dissertation that Southern Seminary has made available titled “The world in His hands: a Christian account of scientific law and its antithetical competitors.”  For those of you who are into worldview apologetics this is a treat!  The dissertation was written by Chris Bolt and was completed on October 27th, 2016.  Christ Bolt has written quite a bit on apologetics online over the years so its neat to see his dissertation is available online for free.

Here’s an abstract:

Today is the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his 95 Theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany which is the beginning of the trajectory that led to the Reformation.

One of the important thing that came out of the Reformation is the recovery of the Gospel.  From the Reformation we also get the five Solas.  During the Fall 2015 Theology Conference at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary the five Solas was the topic that was discussed from some of evangelicalism’s finest scholars as they unpack for us the meaning and significance of each of these themes.  From these lectures they have also partnered with the publishers Zondervan to released “The 5 Solas Series.”  You might want to check out my review of one of the volume, Faith Alone: The Doctrine of Justification by Thomas Schreiner.

All throughout the month I have posting resources and reviews of things related to the Reformation in light of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.  Here’s another one of those resource posts!

The following below are seminary lectures by Nathan Busenitz for a course at the Master’s of Divinity level on historical theology from the Reformation onward.  There are 26 lectures total and 11 of them alone are on the Reformation.  Lectures 12-15 also cover the Puritans which those who love Reformation history and Reformed theology often enjoy also as well.  What a treat!

If you enjoy these kinds of lectures don’t miss also 2017 Seminary Lectures: The Reformation by Dr. Carl Trueman.

Here are the videos featuring Dr. Busenitz:
