Common Grace and the Gospel, Second Edition
3 in stock
What point of contact does the Christian have with the world in order to bring the biblical message to the nonbeliever? How can the doctrines of election and total depravity be reconciled with the universal offer of the gospel and human responsibility? Does our Lord show favour to saint and sinner alike?
Restoring the full text of the original 1972 work, this collection of annotated essays addresses questions on common grace and its relevance to the gospel. A pioneer in presuppositional apologetics, Cornelius Van Til sets forth a Christian philosophy of history; examines the views of Abraham Kuyper, Herman Hoeksema and others in the debate over common grace; and replies to criticism.
"Van Til's account of the matter has been controversial, even among his disciples. But there is much we can learn from him on this subject, and anyone who wants to understand his apologetic and theology must engage his thought at this point."?
