Item Description...
The purpose of this collection of essays is to set in the foreground the necessity of exegetical and theological foundations for any Reformed, Christian apologetic. A Reformed apologetic is only Reformed to the extent that its tenets, principles, methodology, etc. are formed and re-formed by Scripture. It is our hope that this book will demonstrate the necessity of the truth of Scripture, and the implications of that truth, for apologetics. These essays are meant to spell out more clearly the need for, and the beauty of, an apologetic surrounded by the rich truths of the Reformed faith.

Brilliant and Diverse Essays on Apologetics  Oct 16, 2009
This compilation of essays is scriptural, persuasive, and practical. The chapters are vividly conveyed from the pen of several of the most erudite Reformed scholars. The driving force of this regimented apologetic collection is the clear display and demonstration of the exegetical, theological, and methodological content of the Christian apologetic. The biblical truth is depicted and defended as Presuppositional and Van Tilian.

The scholars not only look back, but as they stand on the shoulders of Van Til, they press forward with a rigorous and highly rational defense of the faith. These men of letters urge the reader to defend Christian theism from a proper exposition of scripture. The essays maintain the necessity of the Christian faith as expressed in the Reformed tradition inasmuch as it is embedded in the biblical text. Thus the apologist must not gather his arsenal from merely empirical or theoretical sources, but from the precepts of God's word. This presupposition has epistemic immunity inasmuch as it alone furnishes the pre-essentials for intelligibly (receiving, comprehending, pondering, discerning, and applying that which is known).

Since I am an apologist active in refuting non-believers on YouTube, College Campuses, etc., I enjoyed Don Collett's essay the most. It is my favorite chapter and I did not highlight it because I would have had to paint every page yellow! He provides an indispensable treatise on an up-to-date application of TAG (although the Presuppositional scholarship is advancing rapidly and aspects of his work may be up for minor epistemic amendment). He comments on secular notions of TA's (Gram, Strawson, Fraasen) and interacts with Van Til's and Frame's work.

Oliphint's essay on the Old/New Reformed Apologetic is outstanding and a must read for any apologist who desires the most reasonable apologia available (it covers important aspects of Plantiga's work on warrant). Additionally if you desire to know and proclaim the most biblically faithful Resurrection defense then you must study Gaffin's treatise.

My favorite quote is from John Frame: "The apologist must defend only the distinctive theism of Christianity" p. 119.

Contributors consist of: William Edgar, John Frame, Richard Gaffin, Lane G. Tipton, Michael Horton, K. Scott Oliphint, Don Collett, Thom Notaro, Moises Silva and more.

I recommend this scholarly offering that may be acute and technical, but it is compelling and interesting. Furthermore it will encourage and motivate the cerebral reader.
The Necessary Existence of God: The Proof of Christianity Through Presuppositional Apologetics
Invaluable Resource for Apologetics  Aug 10, 2007
Revelation and Reason: New Essays in Reformed Apologetics (360 pp) is a collection of essays edited by Scott Oliphint and Lane Tipton, two profs from Westminster Philly. This is an outstanding resource. Here are the contents:

----Part 1 Reformed Apologetics: Exegetical Considerations
1. Some Epistemological Reflections on I Cor. 2:6-13-Richard B. Gaffin
2. Resurrection, Proof, and Presuppositionalism: Acts 17:30-31-Lane G. Tipton
3. The Irrationality of Unbelief: An Exegetical Study-K. Scott Oliphint
4. The Case for Calvinistic Hermeneutics-Moises Silva
5. Paul's Christological Interpretation of Creation and Presuppositional Apologetics-Lane G. Tipton
----Part 2 Reformed Apologetics: Theological Foundations
6. Divine Aseity and Apologetics-John M. Frame
7. Consistently Reformed: The Inheritance and Legacy of Van Til's Apologetic-Michael S. Horton
8. A Confessional Apologetic-Thom Notaro
9. Theologia Naturalis: A Reformed Tradition-Jeffrey K. Jue
10. The Eschatological Implications of Genesis 2:15 for Apologetics-Bill Dennison
----Part 3 Reformed Apologetics: Methodological Implications
11. The Old-New Reformed Epistemology-K. Scott Oliphint
12. The Fate of Apologetics in an Age of Normal Nihilism-Michael Payne
13. Turn! Turn! Turn! Reformed Apologetics and the Cultural Dimension-William Edgar
14. Van Til and Transcendental Argument-Don Collett
APPENDIX - Cornelius Van Til and the Reformation of Christian Apologetics-K. Scott Oliphint.

----This is a fairly technical book. It is great, but I would only recommend it to those with a little background in Reformed apologetics. It is in some ways, simply more exegetical, theological, historical, and methodological ammunition to support Van Til's presuppostional method of apologetics. My favorite parts of the books were chapters 2, 5, and 10 where the contributors combined the insights of Cornelius Van Til and Geerhardus Vos, two of my favorite theologians.
