Review: How to Answer the Fool: A Pressupositional Defense of the Faith
How to Answer the Fool: A Pressupositional Defense of the Faith by Sye Ten Bruggencate
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I actually watched a DVD, didn't read this book.
Sye has a knack for taking an abstract philosophical apologetic point and bringing it down to street level for believers and unbelievers alike to understand. He merges Collision, the video documenting debates between atheist Christopher Hitchens and Christian pastor Douglas Wilson, with Ray Comfort’s street interview format.
One of his better stories to get the point across is to suppose your neighbor has stolen a police car and uniform and pulled you over for speeding. They have no right to play judge over the facts if they are not submitting to the Bible.
He’s pretty "in your face," which is perfect for street preaching on the college campus. You can see kids with closed minds arguing back and sometimes starting to really think, three questions into the argument. In his argument with the atheist on stage, he goes too far, though, and just repetitively dismisses him. This actually gets him booted from the stage by the people who put on the event. But they wind up having a fascinating discussion back stage for the last 15 minutes of the hour long session. Published by American Vision.
