    Here is a quote from Gregg Strawbridge's article.
    The entire article is located here: http://www.wordmp3.com/files/gs/presuppbible.htm

    How would you respond to it? He is making an analogy between identifying which person is the judge and identifying which book is the word of God. His point is that finding a way outside of the Bible to identify which book is the word of God does not mean that there is something more authoritative than the word of God. My response to this quote is that we have a way to identify which person is the judge because the civil law or another civil magistrate tells us how to identify the judge. There is some legitimate or authorized authority that tells us how to identify the judge. When it comes to finding out which book is the word of God, we have no other way of knowing what that is unless the Bible tells us or God tells us.

    That is an interesting statement. Is he not a presup?

    Only the God described in the Bible provides the "preconditions of intelligibility". that is the prrsuppositiomalist position. When you compare the credentials/attributes of the God of the Bible with other gods you find that the credentials/attributes of other gods are inadequate.
