Bahnsen just assumes that all non-Christians are moral relativists or reafy of some sort. My only somewhat critique of this book is that for a book designed to be introductory, it does dive deep at times. After writing all of this I just realized who Gre Apologetic Front is now, he is no stranger to any of this.
By far, the best book I’ve read on apologetics to-date. Let me ask you directly as to avoid this smoke screen. Readings and Analysis Love the work.
Apologetics is the special talent of some believers, and the interested hobby of others; but it is the God-ordained responsibility of all believers. Why can’t they be compatibilists, like many in the reformed camp are?
A plethora of books on apologetics can be found in your local Christian bookstore. To demonstrate the unreasonableness of anti-Christianity 2. Bahnsen’s enthusiasm for assuming what you are trying to defend or prove, a very obvious rebuttal to this would for the non-Christian to simply assume a coherent worldview similar to that of Dr.
It is the job of the Christian apologist to reveal this deficiency and to show that Christianity is the only worldview that makes sense of the world around us. Finally in the closing Appendix Bahnsen gives a Biblical exposition of the 17th chapter of the book of Acts and demonstrates how Paul used the Presuppositional method in his encounter with the Greeks on Mars Hill and the Jews in Jerusalem.
I would recommend anyone read this book before they started into Plato or Kant.
Book Review: Always Ready by Greg Bahnsen | Apologetics
On the negative side, this book has a small range of appeal and leaves much to be desired in terms of practical application. So Bahnsen moves away from theory in the first half to practice in the second half: Definitely recommend this book.
Bahnsen makes such bahneen. The author wants to establish a foundation within the readers mind, of the core problem that unbelievers have when it comes to the gospel—their faulty presuppositions.
It argues in a circle. Dec 25, Greenguitar rated it reqdy was amazing.
The book also gives the reader a summary of various logical fallacies to look out for which unbeliever typically make, regardless of their range of intellectual ability. Bahnsen continues to lay out the foundations of the presuppositional apologetic, citing Van Til and Calvin not a few times. And he works through “answer, don’t answer” from proverbs Finally a presuppositional apologetics book that I understand!
Jul 06, Daniel Woodworth rated it it was amazing Shelves: Unbelievers, Bahnsen says, occupy a self-defeating worldview that cannot answer even the most basic questions about life without borrowing nahnsen theistic belief.
That is just it, God has indeed already revealed Himself to you.
Bahnsen makes claims that are very polemical and very underdeveloped. What’s even more fascinating is how apologist can conceive of a God who is all powerful yet always need human reason for defending. I find this book to be highly recommended as a starting point for someone gteg wants to understand the relationship between philosophy and Christianity and discern the differences between believing and unbelieving systems of thought.
Want to Read saving…. It is also less controversial.
ggreg Please understand this very important point: The reason and logic that the unbeliever points to as an authority, is in itself totally corrupt apart from the new birth, and even in an unregenerate person, it is part of his fallen nature and is never a place to start.
I think Bahnsen is cogent and his philosophical method can be argued as sound. Anyone who is seriously wanting to learn Christian apologetics.
This is a clear and forceful case for presuppositional apologetics. He insists, “A Spirit-filled apologist will evidence the fruits of the Spirit in his approach to others. Ex N1hilo November 2, Please, by all means, ask God for answers. This work gives us some of the content of what was going on in the mind of this notable apologist, whom John Frame even believed was the best debater for Presuppositionalism.
It’s dense, so I took my time processing it all. After reading this book, I can say that I have not lost hope for presuppositional apologetics as a whole, but rather with this particular book defending it. Oct alwats, Cho Yim rated it really liked it. For a contemporary example, that may be a little more humble in its approach, try The Reason for God by Tim Keller.
Bahnsen spends a alwaays of time arguing for theism and in the appendix discusses Paul sharing Christianity, but how are we to defend against a Muslim?
