I’m especially excited to present our annual Christmas Recommended Books on Presuppositional apologetics and Van Til’s apologetics.  That is because this is our blog’s eleventh year in which we post our recommendations of books as Christmas gifts on the subject of Presuppositional apologetics or the Christian worldview!

Below are links to the recommendations from previous years, and if you are new to the whole thing with Presuppositional apologetics and want something introductory I highly recommend the first two books we recommend this year along with the listing from 2014 which we highlighted in bold:

James N. Anderson. David Hume.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, December 2, 2019. 160 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

In a 1999 poll conducted by the British based Sunday Times the person voted as the “Greatest Scot of the Millennium” was the philosopher David Hume.  Unfortunately Hume’s philosophy wasn’t just unbiblical but many times Hume was deliberately anti-Christian.  Over the decades of evangelism, engaging in apologetics and taking courses in philosophy and religion I’ve heard people cite Hume or use argument for naturalism that came from Hume.  So who was Hume, what did he teach and what does a Christian philosophical critique of Hume looks like?  This book does an incredibly good job answering these questions.  The author James Anderson is an excellent example of a Christian scholar who engages in philosophy, theology and apologetics and here in this book he delivers the good.  This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the four volumes I have read (this work and the ones on Aquinas, Marx and Richard Dawkins) currently this one is my favorite one.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Looking for an apologetics’ book on why believe in Christianity that would be biblically sound in its doctrine and also clear and reasonable in its worldview analysis?  This book might be for you.  Written by a professor of philosophy and theology and Christian Apologetics at Reformed Theological Seminary this book presents arguments and reasoning from someone that is quite capable and qualified to discuss the veracity of the Christian worldview.  I also like how the author’s presentation is shaped by Presuppositional apologetics!
