Trunk of Scrolls is infused with John Gerstner. The questions he poses in his Handout Apologetics are the ones philosophers have been debating since the beginning. And yet, Gerstner and Trunk of Scrolls provide hope for those answers. As should be clear by the very focus of my website, “Promoting Intelligent Christianity,” it is by reasoning through things that Truth will be found.
Reason, or philosophy, was given by God as a means to find Truth, and reasoning done in the light will always find what is True. If the premises are true, and reasoning is solid, the conclusions will be correct.
This is why it is essential to teach logic and philosophy and to train children how to think through things. Trunk of Scrolls is the story of one family’s exploration of the questions that have always been here–about reality, about suffering, about God, about finding what is true. And hat-tip to Gerstner who so succinctly and amiably presented this at an accessible level. I hope that Trunk of Scrolls will likewise be for each reader an accessible, entertaining and challenging exploration of this historical pursuit.
