Rev. Chilton followed the legacy of Dr. Cornelius Van Til in the presuppositional school of Christian apologetics. This school believes the Christian faith is the only basis for rational thought. It presupposes that the Bible is divine revelation and attempts to expose flaws in other worldviews.
This Van Tillian style of apologetics claims that there are valid arguments to prove that the God of the Bible exists but that the unbeliever would not necessarily be persuaded by them because of his suppression of the truth, and therefore the apologist, he said, must present the truth regardless of whether anyone is actually persuaded by it.
