Overview

The Theological Foundations of Van Til's defense of the faith are set forth here as the unified system of truth to which believers are committed and with which nonbelievers need to be confronted. Writes Van Til: "The Christian faith as a whole, as a unit, must be set over against the non-Christian faith as a whole. Piecemeal apologetics is inadequate, especially for our time. A Christian totality picture requires a Christian view of the methodology of science and philosophy, as well as a Christian view of theology." Thus Van Til explores the implications of Christian theology, particularly for philosophy, as he discusses epistemology, general and special revelation, and the knowledge and attributes of God.
