New Book: Pushing the Antithesis

I told you I would occasionally point out books from other fields of study that I thought were important.  Gary DeMar has edited and put together some notes and lectures of the late Greg Bahnsen in a new book.  The book is Pushing the Antithesis: The Apologetic Methodology of Greg L. Bahnsen.  Bahnsen was a great defender of the Christian faith and influenced me greatly in the area of presuppositional apologetics.  Check out the new book here.

    Chad,
    Thanks for the many book recommendations. So many books – so little time! I was wondering if you could comment further on Greg Bahnsen though. Do to his theonomic and reconstructionist positions I am cautious in endorsing his writings. I have heard from many others though that his apologetics are terrific. Some help needed here for your brother who is having his brain fried in the land of the scorching sun.

    Brian,

    I do not agree with Bahnsen’s theonomic stance, but that should not overshadow the contributions he has made to apologetics. Most of his apologetic work does not involve his stance on theonomy. His work in apologetics is fantastic. If you are looking for a good primer on Bahnsen get his book, “Always Ready.”

    For something more advanced get his work on Van Til. I don’t know of another person (except maybe Frame) who understood and artiuclates Van Til’s presuppositionalism better.

    If you want to hear how brilliant Bahnsen was in terms of seeing his apologetics put into practice, listen to him destroy the arguments of Gordon Stein. Stein can’t even touch Bahnsen and Bahnsen makes him look silly.

    It is good to see someone teaching this in the EFC. There is a group of people I try to study this subject with online that you may find interesting or useful at http://www.choosinghats.com/ they also have a chat channel where we discuss and debate aspects of Theology in application to Theology.
