Psychology of Religion


P&R 1971

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Van Til analyzes the perpetual warfare between the secular and Christian psychologies, one being focused on the Christ’s interaction with the human being and the other, which is worthless without this interaction of the Holy Spirit. He analyzes the ways human thought has attempted to escape facing God and on recognizing ways in which Satan uses human thought to pull us away from the relationship with God.

About Cornelius Van Til

Cornelius Van Til, Dr. Cornelius Van Til, served as a professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, for 43 years. He retired in 1972, but remained as an emeritus professor until his death in 1987. Van Til, an immigrant from The Netherlands, was one of the most respected apologetic theologians of his time.

Van Til earned degrees from Calvin College, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Princeton University on his way to becoming an Orthodox Presbyterian Minister. He served throughout the ministry and scholarly fields, including teaching as an instructor of apologetics at Princeton Theological Seminary and being heavily involved with the foundation of the Philadelphia-Montgomery Christian Academy.

His most noted writings include The New Modernism, The Defense of the Faith, and Christianity and Barthianism. Much of his work with apologetics focuses on the presuppositions of humans, the difference between believers and non-believers, and the opposition between Christian and non-Christian worldviews.
