    You all were very gracious toward the good professor for not pushing back more in his refusal to think through his historical method on Van Tillian terms! It was a really good interview though. I could listen to Trueman talk about random stuff all day long.

  2. I would love to hear some more about Scottish Common Sense Realism. Especially since it undergirded Princeton for most of its existence.

    Entertaining and enlightening episode! This book is now part of my growing wtsbooks wishlist.

    Hey Camden!

    This was a great episode. While Trueman is always refined and articulate, you and my favorite group of Van Tillians continue to show greater and greater maturity and refinement too!
    It is my great hope that more reformed historians grapple with Van Til (or better, with self-attesting Christ of Scripture) as the beginning of their methodology. Method matters. Because of the prominence of Hegel in the academy, ‘Historical Methodology’ matters far more than we’ve assumed.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. (Romans 16:17-18)
