Cornelius Van Til: Champion of Truth

Cornelius Van Til was one of the greatest Christian thinkers of the twentieth century. He revolutionized Christian apologetics, the field of study specializing in defending the faith. Van Til developed what is known as “presuppositional” apologetics, but he thought of it as simply the consistently Reformed method of defending the faith.

Much has been written about him in the last twenty years or so, but it is John R. Muether’s recent biography that is the most complete: Cornelius Van Til: Reformed Apologist and Churchman (P & R Publishing, 2008).
