Presuppositional Apologetics - read slowly and carefully. Van Til is not anti-Evidential in his apologetics, but shows how we first start with people's presuppositions (why they believe what they believe). If people can discover why their presuppositions are wrong or based on the wrong thing (self) then they may be open to change. If so, then the truth of God/Scripture is a tangible option of truth if understood (thus Evidiential Apologetics may be in order at some points). Scripture is truth that is not based on self, but on God because God is the basis of all truth and should be the basis of our presuppositions (there is a God - I am not God - I need to know God in truth).

Maybe a four year old better says it sometimes, "But why?" Keeping asking your friends that question until they can't answer any more, then insert, "Because God..."
