That is Covenant Seminary Professor, Dr. Sean Michael Lucas’ view of Tim Keller’s new book . Here is what Dr. Lucas says:

I had to smile in recognition to the apologetic methodology–moving on to the unbeliever’s turf in order to show the inconsistencies of their own worldview and then demonstrating that only a Christian worldview can make sense of any thing. It was just like Van Til.
…Only without the confusing terminology. And a whole heap more readable. And winsome. And literate. And interesting. And, well, better. I’m looking forward to finishing the book over the weekend.
Greg, the youth pastor as our church is a HUGE Van Til fan. Dorks out on the guy. He even has a "Cornelius Van Til is my homeboy" shirt that he had made. Anyway, our college pastor, Carlos, who I stole the above post from, thinks Keller is better. Here was Greg's response from our group blog. Only theology dorks will find this funny. I found it extremely funny:
That’s it Carlos, you bring Keller and I’ll bring the dutch…its on.
Then again, Keller would bring out his whole NY army of thugs, but then again, the dutch would bring all of Michigan.
Then again, Keller would bring Guliani…and the dutch would bring Bavinck (with Ben D to help translate) and it would be a stale mate.
Bottom line, read them both.
