Currently I am reading Van Til’s The Doctrine of Scripture. It’s been ages since I’ve read Van Til. I read his A Survey of Christian Epistemology in 1999 and have appreciated a number of his books ever since. His Dutch background makes him hard to digest, but at least he’s no Dooyeweerd (who is almost entirely unintelligible). Van Til is someone I need to read slow and carefully. This book is certainly no exception to that rule.
“No one can be a scientist in any intelligible way without at the same time having a philosophy of reality as a whole.” (51)
“The non-Christian scientist may and does believe in the presence of order, but he has no warrant for doing so. His assumed philosophy of chance points to the opposite.” (52)
