There would always be something greater then God’s wisdom-namely, the supposed wisdom of one’s intellectual starting point. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.

The word of God would necessarily logically, if not personally remain subordinate to the autonomous,final standard.

Clearly, you would do the latter. Directions for Defending the Faith is one of the alwayw texts one will turn to when studying presuppositional apologetics.

It’s Understandable Bahnsen’s writings may take a little bit to get use to, but they are much more understandable than many of the other presuppositional writers.


He takes himself to be the reference point for all interpretation of the facts. He also received M. Bahnsen spends a lot of time arguing for theism and in the appendix discusses Paul sharing Christianity, but how are we to defend against a Muslim?

Always Ready: Directions For Defending The Faith

This is a very powerful book. I was convicted from the very first chapter and had a difficult time putting the book down. Bahnsen does an amazing job of getting the Christian to think Biblically about the way he defends his faith: What I said still stands even if it were for an different audience.

A plethora of books on apologetics can be found in your local Christian bookstore. I’d only hope that you were slightly more critical. Sye said “Indeed I do not decry evidence.

Highly recommended and I hope this will get me in the right mind-set to tackle Van Til, one of Bahnsen’s teachers, in the future. All your doing is using your brain to conceive ideas that you call faith reafy perceive the unknown. The Presuppositional apologetic approach is the only approach that makes sense of Proverbs I am not sure how Bahnsen would answer that.


Please, by all means, ask God for answers. Paul writes, “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. I suppose when most Christians refer to certain defenses made on behalf of Christianity, they tend nahnsen recommend specific lectures or books by learned apologists on the particular subject.

But it’s an important subject. I do believe it’s the best single academic and pragmatic book I’ve ever read on the subject of apologetics. The down side is that a lot of Bahnsen’s proof texts do not exegetically support his claims.

Book Review: Always Ready by Greg Bahnsen | Apologetics

I see that Joel Garver has posted a link to his critique of Bahnsen’s position. This point might seem repetitive, but it is a fundamental point in understanding and alwahs the coherence of Presuppositional Apologetics.
