An analysis of the nature, effectiveness, and reliability of the Bahnsenian method of Presuppositional Apologetics when applied to the South African context
MetadataShow full item record
The debate amongst Christian apologists regarding which apologetical method is most useful, continues, and church history not only testifies to this fact, but also displays the variety of ways in which apologetics has been approached by theologians of old (Craig, et all., 2000:7). Closer analyses of the Presuppositional method of Apologetics sheds cardinal light on this debate, and offers possible conclusions and recommendations regarding the way forward for Apologetics (Bahnsen, 1998:467). The nature, effectiveness and reliability of Presuppositionalism become evident through careful analyses of the Bahnsenian method. The views of two South-African opponents of Christianity are apologetically evaluated with the Bahnsenian method. So doing, the Presuppositional method as interpreted by Bahnsen is not only proven effective, but also indispensable to the defence of orthodox Christianity also in South Africa.
