Van Til, The Defense of the Faith

July 24, 2008

"If Cornelius Van Til is the most original apologist of the twentieth century, The Defense of the Faith is arguably his most important book. This new edition provides an enormous service to the reader."
- Dr. William Edgar, professor of apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary

Restoring the full text of the original, unabridged, 1955 work, this annotated edition sets forth and explains a method of apologetics that is consistent with the nature of Christianity itself.
