it was amazing
bookshelves: apologetics-evangelism, philosophy, theology-doctrine, reformed
Read in October, 2009

The very first book I read by Gordon Clark, which is actually a compilation of his essays. It taught me to do apologetics Biblically and solidified my understanding of Bibliology. Read it!

Quotes Carlos Liked

Gordon H. Clark
“Suppose the word mountain meant metaphor, and dog, and Bible, and the United States. Clearly, if a word meant everything, it would mean nothing. If, now, the law of contradiction is an arbitrary convention, and if our linguistic theorists choose some other convention, I challenge them to write a book in conformity with their principles. As a matter of fact it will not be hard for them to do so. Nothing more is necessary than to write the word metaphor sixty thousand times: Metaphor metaphor metaphor metaphor…. This means the dog ran up the mountain, for the word metaphor means dog, ran, and mountain. Unfortunately, the sentence “metaphor metaphor metaphor” also means, Next Christmas is Thanksgiving, for the word metaphor has these meanings as well.”
Gordon H. Clark, God's Hammer: The Bible and Its Critics
