Attacks on Christianity have become more numerous and more pronounced in today's world. Cornelius Van Til's book "The Defence of the Faith" is a classic treatment on apologetics and endures for our time as crucial reading for the thinking Christian. Designed to stop secularists in their tracks, it is the kind of seminal work that serious defenders of the faith cannot afford to ignore. After laying a foundation in the Christian views of God, man, salvation, the world, and knowledge, Van Til explores the roles of authority, reason, and theistic proof, while contrasting Roman Catholic, Arminian, and Reformed methods of defending the faith. "Nothing short of the Christ of the Scriptures, as represented in historic Christian theology, can challenge men to forsake their sin and establish them in truth and life," writes Van Til.
