Overview

The pastor has the primary purpose to grasp, proclaim, and defend the Christian faith. While their faith is continually ridiculed, pastors must develop a criterion for analyzing such criticism and holding to their foundations in Christian teaching. Van Til argues that pastors must recognize these places where they will face criticism and learn ways to defend Christianity in the ways of modern thought.

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.
