First off thanks to Jeff Downs for letting me know about these lectures!

Westminster Theological Seminary have these “Seminary on Saturday” series and during April 2017 they had their professor of Apologetics Dr. Scott Oliphint teach.  For those of you who didn’t know Westminster Theological Seminary is the seminary where Cornelius Van Til taught at many years ago who was the founder of Presuppositional apologetics.  Christians must be informed by the Bible in how they do apologetics and that’s one of the plus of this method (among other things).

These lectures took place at Covenant Church in Nashville, TN.

Here are the lectures:

What a long week last week has been for me!  It was busy both on our blog and offline with ministry in light of Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday.  As readers will notice this past week we dealt with various attacks by skeptics concerning the final week of Jesus.

As a bit of a break this Sunday evening I read and reviewed a Christian children story that’s appropriate for this Resurrection Sunday which I imagine some of you would appreciate.

R.C. Sproul. The Donkey Who Carried a King.  Sanford, FL: Reformation Trust Publishing, February 17th, 2012. 48 pp.

Purchase: Amazon

I have previously enjoyed the author’s Christian children’s book titled The Priest with Dirty Clothes.  Written by Christian theologian R.C. Sproul, I appreciated that this book was biblically solid and yet enjoyable for young ones.  My three little girls who are all pre-school age also enjoyed this book when I read it aloud to them.

This might be a timely post in light of what is today’s date.

 

I’m embarrassed to admit this but it took me nearly four years after this documentary came out before I finally got around to watching it even though I have been following apologist Sye Ten Bruggencate and sharing his materials since his early days of appearing on the radio show Unchained Radio.  But watched it I did!  I purchased two set of it, one for myself and one for our church.  Sye Ten Bruggencate is a proponent of what is called Presuppositonal apologetics, a school of apologetics that began with Cornelius Van Til.  Sye breaks down Presuppositional apologetics barney style for more people to understand.  Over the years many people have come to embrace Presuppositional apologetics through Sye’s ministry which include this DVD that was produced by Marcus Pittman’s Crown Rights Media.  I welcome that fact.  If you haven’t heard of Presuppositional apologetics as a Christian this resource might be useful to you.  Here’s my brief review.

I plan to review more counseling booklets for the sake of the edification and encouragement of the church.

Edward Welch. Depression: The Way Up When You Are Down.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, October 1st, 2000. 28 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster | Amazon

This is a counseling booklet that’s part of the series published by Presbyterian and Reformed called “Resources for Changing Lives.”  In this series of 26 booklets biblical counselor Edward Welch wrote this one on the issue of depression.  After reading this booklet myself I thought this was a helpful resource for Pastors to assign as a reading assignment for someone whom they are counseling concerning depression.  And Pastors definitely need resources on depression if they are going to be prepared to minister to people and their problems.
