The Trinity and the Vindication of Christian Paradox
An Interpretation and Refinement of the Theological Apologetic of Cornelius Van Til
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"With the pathway now clearer because of Bosserman's work, those of us who seek to follow in Van Til's line can better recognize its direction, as well as its boundaries. There will be more brush to clear along the way . . . but the Trinitarian trail, mapped out by Van Til, has now been extensively trod. Its end has not been reached and we may want to sidestep it in places in order to mark off a better sidepath, but wisdom points to the trail Bosserman has blazed as the best place to begin."
--from the foreword by K. Scott Oliphint
"I am delighted that Brant Bosserman has continued the discussion over Cornelius Van Til and his view of theological paradox. Bosserman's analysis of these issues is well worthy of publication and many readers will find it helpful. As Bosserman clearly indicates, these issues are closely related to the Bible's teaching about God's Trinitarian existence, and his proposal about that will contribute significantly to the ongoing discussion."
--John Frame, Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando, FL
"Bosserman offers a profound discussion of the central issue--why the one true God must be three and only three persons. He also adds to Van Til's theology of paradox, showing in detail how paradoxically related truths mutually presuppose one another. Bosserman's work joins the list of must-reads for a new generation of Reformed apologists."
--Ralph Allan Smith, pastor, Mitaka Evangelical Church, Tokyo, Japan
"The Trinity and the Vindication of Christian Paradox is ambitious in its scope, depth, and creativity. It is the first book-length exposition of Van Til's apologetic to give a leading role to his understanding of theological paradox, rather than treating it (as many other Van Tilians have done) as merely a supporting actor or a dispensable extra. In addition, Bosserman's development of Van Til's claim (that the ontological Trinity uniquely solves the ancient problem of the one and the many) moves the discussion forward in significant respects."
