Below are all four of Jeff Johnson’s lectures on Presuppositional Apologetics for Reformed Baptist Seminary. Enjoy!
Listen to Jeff’s interview on the Refining and Reforming Podcast as he discusses The Absurdity of Unbelief: A Worldview Apologetic of the Christian Faith, his excellent new book on apologetics. I highly recommend the book as an outstanding example of presuppositional apologetics. Jeff ably demonstrates how all other worldviews but the Christian worldview are internally inconsistent and ultimately end in absurdity.
Above is a video of an interview of Steve Camp by Jeff Durbin of Apologia Radio. You may also watch it at the Apologia Radio website here, where you may read the comments from Marcus Pitman and some listeners. It is a shame that the interview went as it did, but it nevertheless highlighted some crucial issues regarding how Christians ought to think about their choice for a presidential candidate. I recommend watching the interview and then reading James White’s point of view regarding it in an article entitled My Thoughts on the Jeff Durbin/Steve Camp Interview.
I think James sums things up pretty well, but I would like to add that, so far as I can tell, Donald Trump is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He claims to be a Christian and says that the Bible is his favorite book, but there is every reason to believe that he is lying when he makes such claims, whether intentionally — which I suspect is the case — or because he is self-deceived. This is where I think Steve Camp really misses the crucial point that Jeff Durbin was trying to make. Jeff was right to point out the lack of credibility in Trump’s claims and the fact that this should cause Christians to beware of him (despite the fact that Jeff”s Postmillennial Theonomist views are wrong in my opinion). I cannot understand how so many Christians, represented here by men like Steve Camp, can so willingly ignore the clear evidence in this regard. James White hits the nail on the head when he refers to “Steve’s disconnection of the Christian worldview from the political support of a clearly non-Christian man—who still claims to be Christian even though he is unrepentant about his adultery, fornication, etc. Further, it is clearly relevant to the analysis of Trump as a leader as to what choices he would make regarding SC justices that we look at the consistency of his viewpoints over time.”
Listen to Jeff’s interview with Kevin Boling on the Knowing the Truth Radio Program as they discuss The Absurdity of Unbelief, Jeff’s excellent new book on apologetics. I highly recommend the book as an outstanding example of presuppositional apologetics. Jeff ably demonstrates how all other worldviews but the Christian worldview are internally inconsistent and ultimately end in absurdity.
Today my blog partner, Jeff Johnson, announced on Facebook that The Absurdity of Unbelief, his new book on apologetics, is now available on Amazon.com. Here is the description of the book on the Amazon webpage:
Because all non-Christian worldviews are indefensible, it is not sufficient for skeptics to attack Christianity without also defending the foundation for their own unbelief. Everyone has a worldview, even atheists and skeptics, but only the Christian worldview is not self-contradictory. The Absurdity of Unbelief demonstrates why every possible reason for unbelief is irrational and ultimately meaningless by exposing the various self-refuting systems of thought in which these objections are rooted.
“Agnostics and atheists have been making a lot of noise in recent years, in spite of the fact that their belief systems are so obviously flawed. To counter their propaganda we need a flow of books exposing just how flimsy their arguments are. Jeffrey Johnson has chosen the word ‘absurdity’ to characterise these, and he has chosen well. Chapter by chapter he strips unbelief of any vestige of credibility, then shows with crystal clarity why the biblical case for God stands supreme when contrasted with all other philosophical and religious belief systems. I predict that this book will be as great a help to many of its readers as it has been to me, and I commend it warmly.” John Blanchard
“As Christians struggle to hold onto a semblance of sanity in the midst of the collapse of Western morality and thought, a sound foundation upon which to stand in explaining our unwillingness to bow the knee to Caesar is a must. In The Absurdity of Unbelief, Jeffrey Johnson provides a clear and compelling case for the Christian faith, readable and usable for believer and unbeliever alike.” James R. White
Having read the book myself, I highly recommend it as a must read on the subject. As I said in a post earlier this week, it as an excellent example of presuppositional apologetics. It is one of those books on apologetics that every pastor should read and have on his shelf for future reference.

The blog’s regular readers will recall that I posted an article previewing The Absurdity of Unbelief, Jeff Johnson’s upcoming book on apologetics, here. I then posted an article seeking reviewers here. Now I am pleased to say, however, that the book will be available on December 1 and that Jeff has just debuted a new website for the book here.
