The Apologetic Methodology of Greg L. Bahnsen
Foreword by Gary DeMar
Hardback, 270 pp.
This book was written by Dr. Gentry on a special commission from American Vision. It was originally written as a study guide to the video lectures of Dr. Bahnsen on apologetics. Dr. Gentry requested that his own name be left off the book in that he wanted the book to be, in effect, Dr. Bahnsen's, since he was summarizing his presentation.
Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen believed that to deal with the academics of the day and their arguments against the Christian faith, it is necessary to do battle with them at the highest levels of scholarship using their intellectual tools against them. He could quickly analyze and give direct and compelling answers to all their objections.
Prior to his untimely death in 1995, Dr. Bahnsen delivered a series of lectures on apologetics at American Vision's Life Preparation Conference. These lectures are rare in that they are some of the only video presentations of Dr. Bahnsen's teachings. The week-long sessions, presented before high school and college students, set forth the basics of the Christian worldview and the biblical approach to defending the faith. These lessons have been distilled by Dr. Gentry and turned into a one-of-a kind handbook on apologetics
Pushing the Antithesis consists of twelve chapters that include study questions, an answer key, a glossary of terms, and a comprehensive bibliography. If you want to be equipped to present the truth of the gospel in a compelling way, then Pushing the Antithesis is required reading.
