Reformed Apologist and Churchman

“What [Van Til’s] students often overlook is that to separate Van Til the apologist from Van Til the churchman is to eclipse the very heart and underlying simplicity of his thought and life. Thus, many of his followers are searching for Van Til’s significance apart from the context in which he served. Van Til’s theological commitments cannot be understood apart from his ecclesiology. The faith that Van Til sought to defend was the faith of Reformed churches that found expression in Reformed creeds” (John R. Muether, Cornelius Van Til: Reformed Apologist and Churchman, 15).
