Review Link for New Book on Apologetics


I just finished Scott Oliphint’s generally excellent book on apologetics, Covenantal Apologetics (P&R, 2013) and was fixing to write a review when I stumbled upon an insightful review by Paul Henebury to which I had very little to add. In short, I would agree with the reviewer that Oliphint’s book is a superb explanation of VanTilian presuppositionalism that is weakened considerably by the author’s relentless agenda of making presuppositionalism the exclusive domain of Reformed covenantalists.

I recommend the book generally. I really do. Oliphint has made a very difficult and philosophical subject both clear and practical. I only wish that he had written the book quite apart from the distraction of his second agenda.
