Product Description

Listen to an episode of Christ the Center entitled The Defense of the Faith. (Reformed Forum)


Recommended by K. Scott Oliphint of Westminster Theological Seminary. See all of Dr. Oliphint's recommendations.

This new, annotated edition of The Defense of the Faith restores the full text of the original work in a form that is more easily understood. Cornelius Van Til, who taught for more than forty-five years at Westminster Seminary, sometimes used philosophical vocabulary in The Defense, and many of his conversation partners and critics were not widely known. When later editions greatly abridged this work for these reasons, valuable discussions were laid aside.

Now they are restored, and with added clarification. Newly edited and retypeset, this unabridged edition features a foreword and explanatory notes by K. Scott Oliphint, which help us grasp a method of apologetics consistent with the nature of Christianity itself and continually relevant to our time.

Includes a Foreword by K. Scott Oliphint
