"An excellent brief introduction. . . . insightful, well-written. . . . lays a good foundation for further classroom exploration . . . whether in undergraduate or graduate courses." --Stephen R. Spencer, Bibliotheca Sacra

This is a fairly easy read aimed at intellectually-able high school graduates while he often quotes from Turretin as well as other relevant scholars.
Oliphint echoes previous scholars as he notes: "Given any fact or experience, it (TA) asks the question as to the presuppositions behind that fact, and which make it possible." Michael Butler adds that "only the Christian worldview provides the necessary preconditions for the intelligibility of human experience. That is, only the Christian view of God, creation, providence, revelation, and human nature can make sense of the world in which we live."
also see the presuppositional apologetic works: Apologetics to the Glory of God: An Introduction
Truth, Knowledge and the Reason for God: The Defense of the Rational Assurance of Christianity
and some of Bahnsen's works too.
Oliphint gives students, apologists, ministers, and philosophers a fine resource that advocates philosophy's servitude to theology. He is Reformed, presuppositional, and erudite. now that it is a few years old, you can get it a a good price.
