J. V. Fesko’s Reforming Apologetics: A Review by James N. Anderson

From the Analogical Thoughts blog of James N. Anderson, a review of J. V. Fesko’s Reforming Apologetics.

Anderson writes, here:

So the debate isn’t about whether we should make use of natural revelation, but rather how we do so. Van Til, following Calvin, only insists that the two books of divine revelation be read in conjunction, as they were always intended by their Author to be read. When it comes to apologetics, the Christian faith must be defended “as a unit”; that is, as an integrated, coherent, self-interpreting “system of truth” that coordinates general and special revelation. For this reason, Van Til criticized forms of natural theology that attempted to interpret natural revelation in isolation from biblical revelation, on the basis of a ‘neutral’ epistemology (whether rationalist, empiricist, or some hybrid of the two).

Theological Education in the Era of Covid-19

Dear Friends,

I want to share a blog post with you that has blessed me in the current context of Covid-19 and theological training. It was written by Dr Graham Cheesman of Belfast, Northern Ireland on his Teaching Theology blog site.

Theological educators have been reminded over the last 13 months that the mode of delivery may change, but, as Dr. Graham Cheesman has written, “what we are delivering needs to be preserved.” The Lord we serve and declare does not change!

Please continue to pray for theological training and education at this time. Many strains and stresses have been added, but we serve a faithful, unchanging, and glorious God. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever.” Hebrews 13: 8.
