This is rather belated, since I got this last September 21. However, I do have a thing or two to say in response:
I really like your blog, however, I was somewhat curious as to your analysis of Michael Martin on TAG and that he showed serious problems with it (the blog on February 10, 2005). Are you aware that he skipped out on the debate that he and Dr. Bahnsen had scheduled on the issue? I know his excuse was that he didn't want it taped but I think that is somewhat lame given the fact that he loves to critique the Christian worldview in front of the entire world in his books. Gary North pointed it out quite right when he said that now that Bahnsen's dead, everyone will be trying to debate him. I also think it was after Bahnsen died that Martin finally did a critique of the argument, however, Scott Oliphint, John Frame, and Michael Butler (among others) have both pointed out the absolute absurdity of Dr. Martin's TANG (Transcendental Argument for the Nonexistence of God). Dr. Martin does not even touch TAG much less the Christian worldview. Dr. Bahnsen did a devasting critique of Dr. Martin in 12 lectures that can be found at www.cmfnow.com (mp3 or tape). When Dr. Martin decided to skip the debate, Bahnsen showed up and critiqued Martin in two or three lecture series that can also be found at the same website.
Reppert: What I really had in mind was the debate between Theodore Drange and Douglas Wilson on Internet Infidels. I thought Wilson got slaughtered in that one, and insofar as he was being faithful to presuppositionalism, the debate demonstrates the weaknesses of presuppositonalism. I probably should not have included Michael Martin. When it comes to debating presuppositionalism, I don't think anyone else is in the same league with Bahnsen, so maybe that is what happened in the Drange-Wilson debate (linked below). On the other hand, there never was a real collision between Bahnsen and a real atheist philosopher, and I think that's unfortunate.
By the way, I am getting your book on C.S. Lewis for my birthday and really look forward to reading it. I've heard some really good things about it! Do you also recommend Angus Menuge's book Agents Under Fire?
Reppert: I strongly recommend Dr. Menuge's book, as you can see from my review of it on Amazon. If you want to "go deep," then my book should be read in tandem with Hasker's The Emergent Self and Menuge's Agents Under Fire.
