Introduction to Logic Jason Lisle

Jason Lisle. Introduction to Logic.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, December 10, 2018. 192 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Do you want to improve your reasoning ability as a Christian?  Christian apologist Jason Lisle has written for us an introduction to the laws of logic.  Some who read this review might be thinking: Christian and logic?  Yes the two are compatible.  Jason Lisle’s book on logic follow a long tradition of Christian works on logic such as hymn writer Isaac Watts in 1725 with his Logic: The Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry after Truth, Methodist founder John Wesley’s A Compendium Of Logic, and Gordon Clark’s textbook on logic, etc.  Jason Lisle himself is an astrophysicist who is involved with Creation ministries and previously I enjoyed his book titled Ultimate Proof that give a detailed introduction to Presuppositional Apologetics.  Seeing how good Dr Lisle writes I was looking for a book that I can introduced my daughters to the laws of logic and critical thinking and this book exceeded my expectation!

Relationship presup

Personal Relationship are part of the fabric of who we are.  Yet relationships don’t make sense in every worldview.  In fact personal relationships are intelligible and meaningful in a Christian worldview.

On May 21st there was a conference called “Rescue Youth and Young Adult Conference 2022” at Metropolitan Baptist Church at Hollywood Florida.  Speaker James Hanna delivered an excellent message employing Presuppositional Apologetics to drive the point home that relationships presupposes the Biblical worldview.

Global skepticism

Someone asked:

Here’s my quick take:

Danger1

A few days ago I wrote “Question: Unbelievers spiritually blinded and also knows there is a God?

It made me think tangent to the possibility of not only suppression of truth by nonbelievers but also the suppression of the memory of the act of suppression of truth.

unbelievers know God spirtually blind

Someone asked: Are unbelievers spiritually blinded? If everyone in their heart knows there is a God, how can they be blinded?

This is a question that particularly is one that concerns the Presuppositional Apologists who say nonbelievers in some sense actually know God but are also spiritually blinded.  If someone is not careful, one can think this is an objection to Presuppositional Apologetics.

Here’s my take:

bahnsen tupac

A light humor post.

If you know know the reference to the rapper rapper name Tupac he has a lot of his songs released after his death.

My favorite apologist Greg Bahnsen is like Tupac as most of his books and audios were published and released after his death.

Bahnsen is like Tupac. Short life. Wrote a lot. Taught nonstop. Like a productive robot. More stuff came out after he got shot. Ok maybe not shot. But after his death, his content were still hot. New contents are still released and bought.

Here’s some of the books I recommend:

Seems there’s more teachings on Presuppositional Apologetics out there recently!

These teachings was presented by John O’Roark on how to defend the Christian faith from a distinctly Presuppositional perspective.  John O’Roark functions as a Evangelistic Worker under Reformed Evangelistic Fellowship (REF).  This series is three parts and was taught for a conference called Jim Elliot Fellowship Apologetics Conference Lectures.  I haven’t been able to find out much information about it other than it took place in Chicago, Illinois.

The three lectures are:

  1. Competing Worldviews
  2. The Irrationality of Non-Christian Worldviews
  3. Apologetics Q&A

The Box Answering the Faith of Unbelief

Craig Biehl. The Box: Answering the Faith of Unbelief.  Franklin, TN: Carpenter’s Son Publishing, November 10, 2014. 160 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase:  Amazon

Are you looking for a resource that shows what an evangelistic dialogue with an unbeliever from a Presuppositional apologetics’ perspective looks like, for the purpose of training and being spiritually equipped?  The author Craig Biehl has given us a great resources with his book The Box.  While coming from a Presuppositional Apologetics perspective (the author has a PhD from Westminster Theological Seminary, the school where Cornelius Van Til, the father of Presuppositional Apologetics once taught at) it is written with a pastoral heart for the general audience and with as little technical jargon as possible.  I appreciate that.  I suspect many Christians who pick up this book will too.
