  1. Thanks for your recent episode about “Uncle Case”.  I wonder if someone has tried to combine sound recordings of CVT with diagrams in a video format.

    • Hi Bob,

      It is wonderful to hear CVT, isn’t it? He’s such a pastor. More than 20 years ago I transcribed a sermon he gave (for the Lord’s Supper). I wish I could find it. That was the first thing that signaled to me that there was more to Van Til than two circles and the fierce apologist. He was a Dutch Reformed biblical theologian.

      It was very good and gracious of John to sit for this interview.

      Just for fun, the Dutch spell his nickname “Kees.”

  2. Mag ik even uw aandacht. I always had trouble with the Kees, number and gender of nouns, pronouns and adjectives. 🙂
