The Apologetic Smack-down of the 20th Century

The Greg Bahnsen – Gordon Stein debate of 1985.

As one who is not smart enough to enter the larger public arena of apologetics, nevertheless I’ve been a serious follower of what I consider to be the best of the Christian apologists for more than 30 years, and I consider THIS to be the smack-down of the last century.

It occurred at the University of California, Irvine, in 1985. Greg Bahnsen died December 11, 1995.

My grandson is proudly named after this great Christian.

Do not let the fact that he was a Presuppositionalist generate a bias against him. He was a master debater, immensely Christ-centered and immensely brutal on his opponent. All while maintaining a 1 Peter 3:15 graciousness.

Here is an excellent, brief analysis of the debate from an eye-witness perspective.
