Thirty years ago, Thom Notaro wrote a much talked about book (in Presuppositional circles) called "Van Til & The Use of Evidence," in which he argued that there is a valuable role for evidences in Van Til's apologetic. This small volume is precise, readable, and great for the nontechnical student of apologetics.5/5. On a “cringe-ometer” scale from 1 to 10, with 10 inducing a coma from embarrassment, this rates a 9. I pontificated about Van Til’s thought, about which I knew little first-hand, instead of actually reviewing a book about the role of evidence in an apologetic often mischaracterized as anti-evidence .

Dr Van Til was a great challenge to me because he was a man who spoke in one language and thought in another. If you have ever tried to read his books you will know that he does not think in the English language. Though he writes in English, it is very opaque writing. When Dr Van Til would lecture in the class-room, you would be about 10 minutes. Van Til’s method encourages, rather than discourages, the use of evidence, although some of his language mas suggest otherwise. Typically, however, he did not give his students much instruction in the actual, detailed evidences for s: The Role and Use of Evidence in Reformed Presuppositional Apologetics (1/2) by Alejandro Moreno Morrison Hungarian Translations of Van Til's Books by Cornelius Van Til resources linked from may or may not be sympathetic to Van Til's work. Thom Notaro in his book, Van Til and the Use of Evidence, (Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, ), makes the same point, even finding that “the frequency with which Van Til defends the notion of proof is alarming ” (65). I have cited perhaps only a third of Van Til’s endorsements of the theistic proofs that have appeared in his published writings.

Van Til wrote this book as an “expansion and supplement” to his work The Defense of the Faith (). Van Til summarizes it as an “attempt to work out in greater detail the nature and implications of our commitment to Scriptural authority in relation to our activity . Van Til and the Use of Evidence.

All Students of Apologetics should read at least one book by arguably the most important apologist of the twentieth century: Cornelius Van Til. The single best point of entry into Van Til's writings is Christian Apologetics. Here Van Til presents the underpinnings of his uniquely biblical approach/5(62). [Note: this email has been cross-posted to the Apologia list, due to recent remarks there about the availability of Geisler's latest book, and speculation about the contents of the entry on Van Til. Nevertheless, detailed interaction with the Van Tilian approach should probably be posted to the Van Til List, and not to Apologia.].
