Two fellow bloggers posted this yesterday: A Mysterious Drop in Views – Year 2 and Was It Something I Said?

I have also noticed the decrease of blog views since 2020 with every year having less views.  Yet I also want to balance that to say that God has been tremendously gracious with the blog Veritas Domain with its reach and interactions with people.

I want to add some further thoughts on why this might be happening, why I still blog and what I try to do to support others.

Yesterday I wrote my post “Bible Contradiction? Did Paul go to Jerusalem immediately after his conversion? and from the comments I thought about how I have heard this alleged contradiction has actually been brought up many times including when I was in college by a professor.

Then today I saw this clip from the son of a famous preacher, and this son apostated from Christianity.  These days he’s making videos attacking Christianity.

There’s a thesis for a Master’s in Theology over at Southern Seminary that seems fascinating titled “Reforming Virtue: Bavinck’s Method of Engaging with Virtue Ethics from a Reformed Perspective” by David Moon.  It was completed in December 2022.

I want to examine something in the thesis that was critical of Presuppositionalism and its founder, Cornelius Van Til.

If you read this blog you know that I subscribe to Presuppositional Apologetics.  I won’t be rehearsing what Presuppositional Apologetics is but check out here for a compact definition and here for a lists of many lectures and of those many messages check out Apologetics: What Would Jesus Do? 4 Messages if you can’t decide

While I want to comment about the author’s thoughts on Van Til and Presuppositionalism I want to also say there’s things that one can learn from in the thesis and in no way should this post be seen as a dismissal of everything that’s written in the thesis.

I have written a few years ago “Quick Thoughts on the self attesting nature of the Bible.”  I thought I add to that discussion on the self-attesting nature of the Bible and how Biblical Theology helps us crystalize how the Bible is itself self-attesting.

The Faithful Apologist Rethinking the Role of Persuasion in Apologetics

K. Scott Oliphint. The Faithful Apologist: Rethinking the Role of Persuasion in Apologetics. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Academic, February 22nd 2022. 224 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Want to read a biblical book on persuasion in the context of evangelism and apologetics?  This book is worth considering.  It is written by a professor of apologetics, K. Scott Oliphint.  Oliphint teaches at Westminster Theological Seminary and is also a Presuppositional Apologist.  I know some people have told me they think Presuppositionalists have no interests with persuading people but only to refute unbelievers; this book suggests otherwise.  I’m glad that a book on persuasion was written by someone who is a Presuppositionalist!

Immanuel Kant by Shao Kai Tseng

Shao Kai Tseng. Immanuel Kant.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, November 16th 2020. 232 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Have you heard of the philosopher Immanuel Kant?  Kant as a philosopher is hard to understand and yet Kant was such a watershed individual in philosophy.  Through his writings philosophy went from the trend of large speculation on the “big ideas” of God, freedom, morality, religion, etc., to the overall trend today of being interpretative and analytic, and dare I say “less ambitious” in its scope and aims.  Given Kant’s importance and the difficulties of interpreting him this book has been immensely helpful.  The author Shao Kai Tseng has done a superb job writing this book.  He’s given us a rigorous introduction to Kant from a Reformed standpoint.  A professor of philosophy, the author is also a Reformed Christian with an impressive academic background in philosophy and theology: His Master of Divinity is from Regent College, his ThM from Princeton Theological Seminary and his MSt and DPhil from Oxford. I appreciate that his writing is from a biblical worldview.
