I have watched many of Sye's debated and this video suffers from the same thing his debates do. Greg Bahnsen was good at being patient and communicating this idea in a way intellectuals could appreciate. Sye just puts himself on repeat and waits until they get too frustrated to continue. He seems to have a good heart and a love for the lost and we can commend him on that. I'm sure he helps but in my opinion the bull in the china shop might help you find what your looking for but he makes a mess while doing it.
I highly recommend this DVD, it's great for watching in a group.
If you have been afraid to tackle this subject before, get this DVD and be prepared to engage your unbelieving family and friends! You'll watch it over and over as you master different areas of thinking. It is great for a Bible study group!
There is a move afoot, primarily within reformed evangelical circles, that is decrying all methods of evangelism other than presuppositional apologetics. This, according to Sye (the video producer), is THE way to do evangelism.
I thought Sye's methods were deliberately confrontational, argumentative and downright arrogant. Quite frankly, though I have been a committed believer in the sacrificial death of Christ for more than 40 years, I often found myself on the side of the "fool". Not that I agreed with their unbelief or was sympathetic to their level of self-sufficiency, but felt that they were being abused by Sye's antics. As their words were being cleverly manipulated, Sye acted so smug and condescending. In my view, he was simply engaging in the same circular arguments his opponents were attempting to use against him. After each confrontation, I said to myself, "This is utter futility." Is this truly the evangelism of our future? Where was the Gospel? Where was the love of Christ?
Sye's argument goes like this:
1. "The Fool" asks the Christian for some measure of "proof"
2. The Christian provides what they believe is "convincing evidence"
3. "The fool" is thereby granted full authority to act as both judge and jury
