Therefore, Bahnsen’s starting point is the Bible.
Always Ready : Greg L Bahnsen :
On the plus side, it is a good work to understand presuppostionalism and provides excellent scriptural references. Takes us right back to Proverbs The Goins November 1, I’ll be coming back to this one. There would always be something greater then God’s wisdom-namely, the supposed wisdom zlways one’s intellectual starting point. What a greeg it is to be able to stand our ground and confidently proclaim the truth of the Bible against the foolishness of man’s “wisdom”.
I think Bahnsen would welcome the use of evidences. He summarized his view on the subject in the yreg essay: I would recommend this book to any Christian who is wishing to understand his faith more, This book was an eye-opener for me as far as Christian apologetics is concerned. Being true to that initial pre-supposition had grounded my faith and has made many a debater leave scratching thier heads. One must begin with the Christian worldview, and then adopt atheism from that standpoint, which leaves the unbeliever without consistency—he is a walking alaays.
Why can’t they be compatibilists, like many in the reformed camp are? Davitor, Please, by all means, ask God for answers. Greg and others seem to press the claim that presup’s transcendental argument is a one size fits all approach, the problem is that there is not clear bwhnsen that is every demonstrated to be presup that can be used on other theistic worldviews.
Dispatched from the UK in 4 business days When will my order arrive? I’ve listened to and read many apologetic works that do the readt exact thing.
Apr 06, Michael Jones rated it it was amazing Shelves: Aug 06, Andrew rated it it was amazing. I would recommend this book to any Christian who is wishing to understand his faith more, and especially to those who want to know the starting point on how to defend the Christian faith. I will try it again, I wrote a response but might of forgotten to hit post so it didn’t go through…grrr. The first half of the book is extremely easy to read and smoothly explains each aspect of presup.
Dec 22, Nathan Hardt rated it it was amazing. Bahnsen did his doctoral dissertation on self-deception. He says, “the proof that Christianity is true is that if it were not, we would not be able to prove anything. Bahnsen gives a great description of the deprived state of humanity – especially the mind.

I wish you would have integrated this line of criticism into your review, and show where you depart and where you agree. What’s even more fascinating is how apologist can conceive of a God who is all powerful yet always need human reason for defending. It’s Scriptural I don’t know about you, but I get frustrated when I read any work of Theology- including apologetic material- only to find that Scripture isn’t even used to support bahnaen main thesis.
This work gives us some of the content of what was going on in the mind of this alwahs apologist, whom John Frame even believed was the best debater for Presuppositionalism.
Always Ready: Directions For Defending The Faith by Greg L. Bahnsen
Within the first 10 pages of the book he asserts that approaching apologetics on a neutral ground practicing classical apologetics is “nothing short of immorality. This grwg might seem repetitive, but it is a fundamental point in understanding and appreciating the coherence of Presuppositional Apologetics.
This book helped to to realize that my “opponent” needs to prove the existence of “no-God”. When you tell someone they are a fool for using unregenerate thinking, I do not foresee a lot of come to Jesus moments.
The first section, previously published as a syllabus, provides a step-by-step explanation of key issues in Christian apologetics and establishes the biblical support for the presuppositional method. Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of Spurgeon No I will never stop correcting your errors about God and hope you will repent and trust in Christ with your entire life, your ONLY salvation. The non-Christian thinks that his thinking process is normal.
For instance, a book on the problem of evil may be recommended separately from a book on the cosmological argument for God’s existence.
The second part adress several philosophical problems of our time naturalism, the problem of evil, plurality and relativism. This may be your last day here after all. Directions for Defending the Faith offers a good corrective to this mindset. Would you lay down your weapon to make it bajnsen for him to attack?

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. The one major issue I dont agree with Bahnsan or Van Til on is calvanism but thats a whole Best book I’ve read on the subject!! That being said, Always Ready stands out from the pack as a genuinely biblical approach to apologetics.
Davitor November 4, It’s dense, so I took my time processing it all. Telling an Atheist to “try Jesus” is not Biblical, asking nonbelievers to evaluate God instead of evaluate self isn’t either.
Always Ready : Directions for Defending the Faith
Start reading Always Ready: How can an atheist point to his own reason as the final arbiter of truth, when that very reason comes from a random universe which contains no meaning or authority in itself?
Highly recommended and I hope this will get me in the right alwys to tackle Van Til, one of Bahnsen’s teachers, in the future. It is both accessible and scholarly. The denial of neutrality secures, rather than destroys, commonality.
