VanTil-teaching

 

Dr. Cornelius Van Til spent 43 years as professor of apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, and emeritus professor after his retirement in 1972. His educational credentials include: graduating from Calvin College (A.B., 1922), Princeton Theological Seminary (Th.B., 1924; Th.M., 1925) and Princeton University (Ph.D. 1927). He served as the pastor of the Christian Reformed Church in Spring Lake, MI, 1927–28 and was instructor of apologetics at Princeton Theological Seminary, 1928–29. He was professor of apologetics at Westminster, 1929–72. He held an honorary professorship at the University of Debrecen, Hungary, in 1938; the Th.D. (honoris causa) from the University of Potchefstroom, South Africa; and the D.D. from Reformed Episcopal Seminary, Philadelphia. He was a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church from 1936 until his death April 18, 1987 (at the age of 91). Van Til was also instrumental in the founding of Philadelphia-Montgomery Christian Academy, serving as the president of the board. Begun in September 1942, the school had hundreds of students, K-12, on campuses in three Philadelphia communities: Roxborough, Dresher and Erdenheim.

He is perhaps best known for the development of a fresh approach to the task of defending the Christian faith. Although trained in traditional methods he drew on the insights of fellow Calvinistic philosophers Vollenhoven and Dooyeweerd to formulate a more consistently Christian methodology. His apologetic focused on the role of presuppositions, the point of contact between believers and unbelievers, and the antithesis between Christian and non-Christian worldviews.

Van Til’s published writings include Apologetics (Presbyterian & Reformed, 1976), The Defense of the Faith (P&R, 1955) and A Christian Theory of Knowledge (P&R, 1969), plus several syallabi and numerous reviews and articles. He was joint editor of Philosophia Reformata, a quarterly devoted to Calvinistic philosophy. A festschrift, Jerusalem and Athens, edited by E. R. Geehan with contributions by Hendrik G. Stoker, Herman Dooyeweerd, J. I. Packer, Paul K. Jewett, Arthur Holmes and others, was published on his 75th birthday (P&R, 1971).

    Anytime, thank you for putting this together in one place. I greatly appreciate the effort to make these resources available. I had a few of these that were available through Itunes but not all of them.
