John Muether has written a noteworthy biography of the life and ministry of Cornelius Van Til, setting the theological contributions of Van Til in the historical context in which they were developed and defended. It is on this account that Muether's Cornelius Van Til: Re-formed Apologist and Churchman stands out as a unique contribution to the world of Christian biographies. The overarching purpose of this work is to show that Van Til was preeminently committed to the work of Christ in the church. In short, the book aims at demonstrating that "Van Til's theological commitment cannot be understood apart from his ecclesiology" (15).
