About the group picture

Cornelius Van Til was a 20th century Christian apologist who drew this diagram while teaching classes in seminary. Below is an explanation of this diagram by one of his students.

“Van Til . . . always taught that a Christian worldview should be represented by two circles (for Creator and creature), clearly distinct from one another, with the larger one (representing God) on top. One circle alone referred to the non-Christian worldview, in which man and God (if he exists) are on the same level, part of one reality.” John Frame, Cornelius Van Til: An Analysis of His Thought, (Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, 1995), p. 27.

Yeah it's an absolutely phenomenal piece. The ease of the "conversation" was so well articulated and humble that I couldn't help but come away inspired and edified.

@Tony J. Bowe. I really like that pamphlet. Van Til shows his pastoral side, which is enjoyable. The last two sentences are great. "Well, my meanderings have, to be sure, been circular; they have made everything turn on God. So now I shall leave you with Him, and with His mercy."

Just finished reading this excellent piece by Van Til - many of you have probably read it before. It's:

Why I Believe in God

An absolutely fantastic work. Enjoy!
