Building Old School Churches

In the early 19th century, a controversy arose in American Presbyterianism over evangelistic method and doctrines such as the imputation of Adam’s sin. One group identified as the Old School Presbyterians and organized around teachings such as the regulative principle of worship, Presbyterian polity, Calvinism, the spirituality of the church and warm, winsome preaching that applies God’s truths to men’s hearts. Andy Webb joins Jim Cassidy, Jeff Waddington and Camden Bucey for a discussion on building old school churches. (more…)

Van Til and Barth

The group continues their discussion of Cornelius Van Til by examining Van Til’s critique of the theology of Karl Barth. Van Til’s two books The New Modernism and Christianity and Barthianism were extremely influential in developing an understanding of Barth among English-speaking theologians. The discussion brings the critique to the foreground particularly in the light of Barthianism’s dominance in the current evangelical landscape.

Cornelius Van Til

Cornelius Van Til (1895–1987) developed a unique approach to apologetics which stemmed from a solid foundation in reformed theology and a background in Idealist philosophy. His method has been called presuppositionalism, transcendental and covenantal. Many recent theologians have been influenced by Van Til’s thought, especially current faculty members of Westminster Theological Seminary where he so faithfully taught. Jeff Waddington, Jim Cassidy and Camden Bucey discuss Cornelius Van Til and his tremendous contribution to reformed apologetics. (more…)
