Vintage Van Til

I have been reading through Van Til’s book simply entitled “Apologetic.” It is remarkable for its forcefulness, but also its simplicity. He argues that to defend Christian theism as “a unit it must be shown that its parts are really related to one another.” The Bible is at the center not only of every course, “but at the center of the curriculum as a whole.” This centrality and consistency leads him to affirm that the “religious and moral instructions of the Bible cannot be separated.” Without taking the Bible into account, “there is nothing in the universe on which human beings can have full and true information.”
