Dr. Greg L. Bahnsen was one of the most effective Christian apologists and teachers of apologetics of the twentieth century. His work consistently underscored the abiding authority of the Word of God and the need to apply it to all of life. In addition to his powerful work in the area of apologetics, His seminal book, Theonomy in Christian Ethics is still challenging the church to honor all of God''s word as the only perfect standard of righteousness.
This festschrift seeks to acknowledge the enormous contribution Dr. Bahnsen made to the Christian church; a contribution that has and will continue to provide a positive influence in the kingdom of God for many, many years to come. Each of the contributors to this volume owe a debt of love and gratitude to Dr. Bahnsen, not only for the labor and instruction he provided for them, but also for his kind and personal affection.
