  Literally, it means “Scripture Alone,” not ironically the title of this book. James White has written a unique treatise on an issue that is heavily under fire in today’s world that harkens back to this principle that the reformers understood: that the Christian faith rests finally on the Bible/5(99). Scripture Alone by James R. White had me hooked at the Dedication page. The heart for Christ that is briefly exposed there is more full expressed in the subsequent pages. White states in his Introduction that he is passionate about theology and faith, and that passion is clear throughout the book/5(2). R.C. Sproul (Drs, Free University of Amsterdam) was the founder of Ligonier Ministries and general editor of The Reformation Study Bible. A prolific author, he wrote more than sixty books, including The Holiness of God, Faith Alone, Scripture Alone, Chosen by God, What Is Reformed Theology?, The Glory of Christ, The Mystery of the Holy Spirit, and Getting the Gospel Right. The Bible Alone? Introduction. Many Christians believe that the Bible, and the Bible alone, is the sole authority, or the sole rule of faith, that one needs in order to know what is and is not authentic Christian teaching and practice. This belief is known as sola scriptura, or “Scripture Alone.” Catholic Christians, however, believe that.

selves to be people of the Book, that is, Bible-believing Christians. To affirm the biblical principle of sola Scriptura (by Scripture alone), we acknowledge the unique authority of the Bible. Scripture alone is the rul-ing norm for our theology and the ultimate authority for life and doctrine. Sola Scriptura (Scriptura alone) was the “formal principle” of the Reformation—the authority that formed and shaped the entire movement from beginning to end. It meant that the Word of God was sufficient, and its purpose was to reposition the Bible as the final authority over the Church. 21 Reasons to Reject Sola Scriptura.

Every generation of Christians since the time of Jesus has had to face attacks upon Scripture from an unbelieving and hostile world. And in every generation, men and women have stood for the absolute inerrancy. This conviction of sola Scriptura— the Scriptures alone are the Word of God and, therefore, the only infallible rule for life and doctrine—provided the fuel needed to ignite the Reformation. Indeed, it was regarded as the “formal cause” of the Reformation (whereas sola fide, or “faith alone,” was regarded as the “material cause”). A denial of the sufficiency of Scripture is at the core of almost every form of opposition to the Christian faith today. Scripture Alone is written to instill a passionate love for and understanding of the Bible. In this defense of God's inspired Word, readers will comprehend what "God's Word"is, the nature of Scripture, the relationship of the Bible to tradition, how to apply Scripture to 5/5(1).   A most helpful feature in this book is the dialog that buttresses each of White’s chapters. As an experienced debater White provides an abundance of real life conversations with those who would deny the sufficiency of Scripture. This feature alone makes the book worth your read.
