In October 1990, the long-promised book by the faculty of Westminster Theological Seminary finally appeared: Theonomy: A Reformed Critique. This book is North’s two-pronged response. First, he takes up the major essays and themes of the Westminster faculty’s critique/interaction with theonomy and provides clarifications and rejoinders. Second, he argues that Westminster has abandoned the apologetic theory of Cornelius Van Til, which maintains that between the believer and the unbeliever all ground is common ground, but no ground is neutral ground. No neutral ground means that every square inch of life is claimed by Christ, including law, civil government and social ethics. No neutral ground means that the Bible must be the ultimate authority in every sphere of life. The Westminster faculty has abandoned Van Til, substituting various versions of “neutral” natural law theory. The faculty has not openly faced up to the question: “If not Van Til’s philosophy, what?” This is a production of Recon Radio.
