In the twentieth century, the doctrine of Scripture became a particular focus of intense criticism. Some of R. C. Sproul’s most significant writings have been on the doctrine of Scripture. Not all of this material is in print, and no volume has ever collected his best writings on this pivotal doctrine. Scripture Alone consists of four chapters that originally appeared in symposium volumes edited by others and the author’s commentary on the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy. These writings constitute an important restatement of the evangelical doctrine of Scripture. Scripture Alone will help all Christians to stand firm in defense of the truth.

**** Is the Bible trustworthy? That has been an issue for many years, but issues such as the increasingly hot debates over creation vs. Darwinianism, or whether or not recent bestsellers have any validity have made it more important to be sure that the Bible is what it claims, the word of God. In a scholarly, yet conversational style, this book examines why it is important to know where you stand on that point of doctrine and why the Bible can be trusted. The explanation of complex terms and the historical background of the debate will broaden readers' acumen in multiple ways. Granted, it is not light reading, but it is worth your time. ****
