Posts Tagged ‘Greg Bahnsen’

Many years ago as a young Christian I wanted to purchase this lecture series. So the fact that this is now available for free is a treat.

But let’s back up. A few months ago our blog mentioned that all of Apologist Greg Bahnsen’s MP3 Lectures now free for download!

He’s my favorite apologist and has shaped me in so many ways.  He’s one of my role models with his example of scholarship, intellect, boldness to defend the faith, his desire to be biblical and also his pastoral heart.  And everything he did was so intense.

Here is a quick bio of Bahnsen:

Greg L. Bahnsen, (1948-1995), was an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and a full time Scholar in Residence for the Southern California Center for Christian Studies. He received his Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Southern California, specializing in the theory of knowledge. He previously received the B.A. (magna cum laude, philosophy) from Westmont College, and then simultaneously earned the M.Div. and Th.M. degrees from Westminster Theological Seminary. Dr. Bahnsen lectured to a broad range of evangelical Christian groups at many colleges and conferences. He was an experienced apologist and debater, a clear and cogent teacher of the Christian worldview who was devoted to training believers in understanding and applying the Christian faith to every area of life. He published numerous scholarly articles, a number of well-known books, and has over 1,500 recorded lectures and sermons.

Among those 1,500 lectures Bahnsen taught a four part series titled “Answer to Frame’s Critique of Cornelius Van Til.” It was just loaded this month on July 7th!

There was a recent debate this past week on on apologetics methodology one of the debaters wrote on Facebook that Presuppositionalists claims that nonbelievers cannot know anything.  If “Presuppositional apologetics” is new to you I recommend checking out our Ultimate Collection of Free Presuppositional Apologetics Lectures and listening to anything on there under Greg Bahnsen.

Is it true that Presuppositionalists claims nonbelievers do not not know anything?

Among those 1,500 lectures Bahnsen taught a three part series titled “Apologetics in the Workplace.” These were originally taught to lay people in Grand Rapids. He emphasized in opening this series he wants to teach and equip God’s people with knowing how to defend the faith in every day life.

Here’s the MP3s:

1 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 1 (1 of 3)

2 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 2 (2 of 3)

3 – Apologetics in the Workplace, Part 3 (3 of 3)

Greg Bahnsen. Against All Opposition: Defending the Christian Worldview. Powder Springs, GA: American Vision, May 2020. 254 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: American Vision

Want to read a book on what does Pesuppositional Apologetics looks like especially with its application?  This book is published by American Vision that is edited from the audio teachings of the last Greg Bahnsen of a conference called Life Preparation Conference during the 1990s sponsored by American Vision.  Greg Bahnsen is one of my favorite apologists and reading this latest book made me remember all the reasons I love about Bahnsen: He was biblically driven, worldview conscious, laid out his presentation clearly and rigorous in his refutation of unbelieving worldview.

I think one of the best Christian apologist of the last half of the last Century was Greg Bahnsen.  He was a skilled debater and lecturer on Presuppositional Apologetics and a student of Cornelius Van Til, the father of Presuppositonal apologetics.  He’s my favorite apologist and has shaped me in so many ways.  He’s one of my role models with his example of scholarship, intellect, boldness to defend the faith, his desire to be biblical and also his pastoral heart.  And everything he did was so intense.

We have shared many resources from Greg Bahnsen on our blog over the last 14  years.  All you have to do is type in his name under search.

Well there’s a big news I want to share: Now all his audio MP3s are now all available online for free at Covenant Media Foundation:

Last week I posted .  Today I want to post another of Greg Bahnsen‘s debate and this would be his most famous one with atheist Gordon Stein.

Thanks to ReformedWiki who spent some time to improve the audio of this debate.   It is because ReformedWiki has improved the sound is why I’m posting this; some of you have followed this blog for years might know our top post for the decades of 2006-2010 and 2010-2020 was on this debate which you can download the MP3 here: Greg Bahnsen vs Gordon Stein Mp3.

The debate took place at the University of Irvine in 1985.  It is unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died rather young and unexpectantly.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian and wrote on many subjects from a biblical worldview while he was alive.

Below is the debate and also further information about Greg Bahnsen:

ReformedWiki spent some time to improve the audios for this famous debate between Christian apologist Greg Bahnsen vs Edward Tabash.  The debate took place in UC Davis in California back in 1993.  Unfortunately Dr. Greg Bahnsen died a few years after that debate.  Some of you know he’s my favorite apologist.  Bahnsen was a student of Cornelius Van Til (father of Presuppositional apologetics) and he  was a prolific apologist and theologian while he was alive.

If you follow my blog you know that my apologetics’ methodology is shaped by Philosopher and Theologian Cornelius Van Til who is the father of Presuppositional Apologetics.  Who is Cornelius Van Til and what did he teach and why is he important?  Where do one begin with an introduction?  I think why I like him is not just only how there’s a lot of “bite” with this school of apologetics but also Van Til’s emphasis that our method of defending the faith must be biblical and not compromised.  Here’s a podcast discussion about the Van Til from Reformed Forum:
