An Introduction to Systematic Theology (Cornelius Van Til)

  • Author: Cornelius Van Til

$20.99 $17.50 Save 17%

Cornelius Van Til’s Introduction to Systematic Theology is one of his most important books, certainly a must-read for anyone who is trying to understand Systematic Theology. And it is important for Christians to learn at the feet of Van Til today, perhaps as never before, a scholar who challenges Christians to think in a distinctively biblical way. That biblical way opposes and challenges all religions and secular philosophies, all ideologies that place the ultimate source of truth and value in human beings rather than in God.

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.

An Introduction to Systematic Theology

Prolegomena and the Doctrines of Revelation, Scripture, and God

Cornelius Van Til’s Introduction to Systematic Theology is one of his most important books, certainly a must-read for anyone who is trying to understand Systematic Theology. And it is important for Christians to learn at the feet of Van Til today, perhaps as never before, a scholar who challenges Christians to think in a distinctively biblical way. That biblical way opposes and challenges all religions and secular philosophies, all ideologies that place the ultimate source of truth and value in human beings rather than in God.

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. Cornelius Van Til taught apologetics for more than forty-five years at Westminster Theological Seminary.

This newly edited and typeset edition features an introduction and explanatory notes by William Edgar.
