As attacks on Christianity become more numerous and pronounced, Cornelius Van Til's classic treatment on apologetics endures as crucial reading for our time. Designed to stop secularists in their tracks, it is the kind of work that serious defenders of the faith cannot afford to ignore.
After laying a foundation in the Christian views of God, Van Til explores the roles of authority, reason, and theistic proof, while contrasting Roman Catholic, Arminian, and Reformed methods of defending the faith. "Nothing short of the Christ of the Scriptures, as presented in historic Reformed theology, can challenge men to forsake their sin and establish them in truth and life," writes Van Til. "The natural man must be shown that on his presupposition or assumption of man's autonomy human predication has no meaning at all."
