Van Til the Controversialist
This article is about Cornelius van Til the Controversialist. The nickname is based on an article that he published in 1976 entitled Calvin the Controversialist, which took on a subtle autobiographical character. Van Til developed and championed a presuppositional approach to the defense of the faith. He was consistent in affirming a Reformed doctrine of the church, and that, above all, is what rendered his work controversial.
