Van Til in 30 seconds

William White Jr. in his biography of Cornelius Van Til: Defender of the Faith, summarizes Van Til in this way: “To concede that the mind of the thinker can by searching find out about God, or discover truth, be it Plato’s or Spinoza’s or Einstein’s, is in effect to fight the Lord’s battle in Saul’s armor.” Van Til believed with great conviction that the way to know God was by presupposing God; a presupposition that only came by the work of the Spirit. This was certainly revolutionary in Van Til’s day and it is quite revolutionary today.
