Bringing Every Thought Captive
Apologetics — The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth
A paperback primer on the presuppositional method adapted from an oral presentation offered by Dr. Bahnsen during an informal debate with Dr. R.C. Sproul in 1977 at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi.
“This booklet offers a most concise, yet thorough-going presentation of Presuppositional Apologetics. Bahnsen’s rigorous exegesis, logical consistency and cogent style provide a superbly persuasive primer on defending the Christian faith in a Biblical manner. This resource will prove particularly valuable for those involved in ministry to an unbelieving culture.”
“Never was it more important for the Christian church to retain a right biblical apologetic than at the present. The raging age of skepticism and Christian apostasy calls for a rock-solid, biblically-based, presuppositional apologetic as so elegantly, simply, and succinctly laid out here by Dr. Greg Bahnsen. I recommend this for every Christian leader and lay person.”
“Derived from the classic informal debate between Greg Bahnsen and RC Sproul, “Apologetics” presents a concise summary of the fundamental principles of the presuppositional approach. This brief and succinct overview serves as a valuable resource, offering key insights into the biblical foundation of apologetics, making it beneficial for both experts and laypeople. I wholeheartedly recommend it.”
Sponsored by the visiting scholars-in-residence series at Orange Coast College, this four-part dialogue features representatives of the the three main religions which arose from the Middle East. Dr. Bahnsen challenges the material adequacy of both Judaism and Islam and demonstrates that only God's grace, declared in the Bible, meets man's most...

By Dr. Greg Bahnsen in The Seventh Trumpet, Vol. V, No. 4 (Sep./Oct. 1990) Don’t let anyone fool you. Ideas are not irrelevant. The most basic way that people think – the way they see themselves and the world around them – makes a walloping difference to their world and their behavior in it. For instance, plenty of people think of this as a...
By Dr. Greg Bahnsen in Penpoint VII:2 (Feb./Mar., 1996) Presuppositional apologetics as taught by Cornelius Van Til urges the Christian to argue with unbelievers in an "indirect" fashion, doing an internal analysis of the unbeliever's worldview (his fundamental assumptions about reality, knowledge, and ethics) and comparing it to the worldview...
By Dr. Greg Bahnsen in Penpoint VI:11 (November, 1995) In popular misconception today, the choice of an apologetical method facing a Bible-believing Christian is between arguing presuppositionally OR appealing to evidences from history and nature in support of Christianity. But that is entirely wrong. Presuppositional apologetics endorses and...
