Greg Bahnsen / George H. Smith
Greg L. Bahnsen (September 17, 1948 - December 11, 1995) was an influential Calvinist philosopher, apologist, and debater. He was an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and a full time Scholar in Residence for the Southern California Center for Christian Studies.
In 1970 Bahnsen graduated magna cum laude from Westmont College, receiving his B.A. in philosophy as well as the John Bunyan Smith Award for his overall grade point average. From there he went on to Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, where he studied under Van Til.
George Hamilton Smith (born February 10, 1949 in Japan) is an American libertarian author and educator. He grew up mostly in Tucson, Arizona, and attended the University of Arizona for several years before leaving without a degree.
After relocating to Los Angeles during 1971, Smith (through the intercession of Roy A. Childs, Jr.) secured a contract from Nash Publishing (then located in Los Angeles) to produce a book on atheism. The finished product, his first book, Atheism: The Case Against God (1974), became one of the bestselling works on atheism published during the 20th century.
