    if you have itunes, click on whatever and look for stuff under launch itunes. Then click on courses in theology. Then click on Christian Apologetics.

    It rocks. He deals with Bahnsen somewhere down the line (in the section on van til).

    He cannot deal with Bahnsen, because where he differs, he is wrong :D

    Now he could address Bahnsen's concerns....

    Hey CT, are you signed in as Jeremy again! :lol:

    By the way, since you're here, you might know the answer to my question (or somebody else).

    I picked up the entired History of Western Philosophy series by Bahnsen in audio format for some outrageously low price around 2002. It's an excellent series and I've been listening to it off and on after I converted it to MP3 so I could listed on my iPod while working out and driving.

    Do you know if the notes that he refers to in that series are available online somewhere? I'd love to have the outline of the stuff he covers. I get used to the terminology after repeated exposure but I tend to forget some of the stuff and the notes would be handy.

    Just a couple of days ago, I was reading The New Modernism and Van Til was criticizing Barth and Brunner's activism and I wasn't sure what the term meant. Providentially, I heard Bahnsen talking about 19th and 20th Century philosophy and he defined activism! I swear, most of the time understanding a thing is just knowing the definitions of the words they're using.

    this is the best I could come up with? I will ask some of my friends in the theonomic underground what the word on the street is.

    It was a baptist trap. He no longer lives here, but he still has a key. So he seemed to have dropped by while I was at work and left himself signed in.

    It is available for pretty cheap here: http://www.wordmp3.com/search.asp?itemid=5295

    I would have given you the same link that Jacob posted just above. It is all that I know of.

    Thanks Jacob and CT.

    I really enjoy listening to Bahnsen. I can place the year he's talking when he references Haiti and Clinton and the like. It kind of makes me laugh to myself when he gives those cultural references. Those students of his in those lectures are all in their early to mid-30's by now.

    Is anybody else getting an error message when they try to open up the RTS iTunes store?

    He quoted Mr T and the A-team in one of the ones I just listened to. :lol:

    Because its RTS. By definition it can't be user-friendly.

    You'll have to explain that to me someday. Probably some inside knowledge.

    No.

    It looks like a bunch of other stuff is free too. Either that or iTunes is nailing my PayPal account without me knowing.

    It's working now. If Jacob was nearby I'd give him a bear hug for pointing this out. It's amazing how much time I spend driving. I only work about a half mile away but between driving to lunch, checking mail, working out, etc I'm able to listen to about 45 minutes of audio per day. Talk about redeeming time!

    I actually get frustrated if I have to drive somewhere and I don't have something new to listen to.

    Philosophy?

    Does anyone know of any philosophy lectures along these lines? For example, I thought I remember hearing that Yale was going to put some of their classes on-line, etc.

    Any pointers?

    What a grand thing!

    Hello Everybody,

    I own the mp3 series of Bahnsen's history of Western Civ., but find the audio quality to be very poor. Is what is being offered at Wordmp3.com a better quality than the first mp3 releases by Covenant Media?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    1.) I shall get my adorable little iPOD shuffle ready for this!
    2.) Theonomic Underground (as Jacob referred to his cohorts) sounds like a new metal band! I might use that for a song title one day...

    Thanks for posting this!

    The Trinity Foundation has a lot of lectures available. Many people on this board aren't fond of Gordon Clark and John Robbins. I have listened to some that deal with more general issues instead of starting on Clarkian specifics and have found them to be helpful.

    I've really been toying with the idea of doing a metal song based on Psalm 2, myself.

    I've always been on the lookout for a metal band who do something like a Katatonia version of Psalm 88.

    *chokes back tears*

    Its scary how similar we are. Come to the dark side...

    As to the RTS thing, they have a lot of potentially awesome material that is almost impossible to access. Plus, there is a lot inside stuff while not bad, doesn't make your life easier.

    Becoming the Archetype has a song called "One Man Parade" that responds to the following verses from that psalm:

    Psa 88:10 Do you work wonders for the dead? Do the departed rise up to praise you? Selah.
    Psa 88:11 Is your steadfast love declared in the grave, or your faithfulness in Abaddon?

    by saying

    "The dead rise up to praise you
    Your love goes far beyond the grave"

    Of course, the end of the song kinda sounds arminian (Make your choice, who's side are you on?), but it's nothing unlike what Joshua said to the people of Israel. Likewise, their singer said the song "Elegy" is about the "total depravity" of man. Whether he meant this in the theological sense, I don't know. But, they are a pretty decent metal band for those who like screamers and such.

    Please, please stop with comparing theonomy to heavy metal. Bon Jovi's *Wanted: Dead or Alive* (or anything by Bon Jovi, for that matter) is the ultimate theonomic music.
