[This is the same introduction that I gave to my review for Vol. I. The actual review below is different.] Although it does not cover every disputed exegetical and historical question in detail (and what book could without making the volume massive!), I give this three volume set five stars since there is simply nothing else like it from the Protestant/Evangelical side out there. Since it is a popular polemical work, I shall use a polemical tone in my review. But, before I get to the review, I would like to note that much of the criticisms of this work by the Roman Catholics below are actually addressed in the three volumes. These people remind me of the militant Darwinists who don't even read I.D. books before giving the book a one-star review and repeating ad infinitum ad nauseum the same tired arguments the book tries to address. So, now to the review:

Volume Two:

Chapter 1

In the first chapter Webster discusses how the early church fathers viewed Scripture, Tradition, and how they related to each other. He goes into depth on the views of such church fathers as: Irenaeus, Tertullian, Clement of Alexandria, Origen, Cyril of Jerusalem, Athanasius, John Chrysostom, Gregory of Nyssa, Gregory of Nazianzus, Basil of Caesarea, and especially Augustine. Webster also discusses and refutes the Roman Catholic (R.C. from now on) apologetic use of passages by these church fathers. R.C. apologists abuse these passages in a number of ways: they frequently cite such passages as these in isolation from the surrounding context, equivocate on terms such as "tradition", or a combination thereof. Next, he cites the view during the early to mid Middle Ages by noting the writings of Thomas Aquinas, Anselm, and historical scholars.

It seems as if the demise of sola Scriptura has been highly exaggerated. I admit that there are few comprehensive works of this vital truth. Furthermore, one would have to go back a few centuries to the work of William Whitaker, "Disputations on Holy Scripture" in 1588 or William Goode's "The Divine Rule of Faith and Practice" in 1853 for a comprehensive defense of sola Scriptura. However, with the work of David King and William Webster things have now changed. A contemporary comprehensive work is now available in "Holy Scripture The Ground and Pillar of Our Faith". In this three-volume work King and Webster has done the church an enormous service. Volume 1 contains close to 300 pages and deals with sola Scriptura from a biblical perspective. Volume 2 is over 400 pages and deals with sola Scripture from an historical perspective. Finally, volume 3 is approximately 300 pages of quotes from the fathers on the subject of sola Scriptura. In the end, I think King and Webster have set the new standard for discussions on this topic. This generation and generations to come are blessed with the most thorough comprehensive investigation of sola Scripture from a biblical and historical perspective available.
Volume 1 deals with the biblical evidence for sola Scripture and until reading it I hadn't really considered all the ancillary doctrines that affect sola Scripture. In this volume David King covers revelation (Catholic and Protestant views), exegesis of primary New Testament texts, New Testament meaning of tradition, Scripture the only infallible norm, Scripture the only certain norm, material sufficiency of Scripture, formal sufficiency of Scripture, final authority (Catholic and Protestant views), and common misrepresentations of sola Scriptura.

17 of 20 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on November 21, 2001
The ecumenical emphasis during the Roman Catholic council of Vatican II was a rather abrupt departure from a prior history of assembling for the purpose of condemning belief systems in opposition to Rome. Rather than placing a number of "anathema's" upon non-Catholic dogma, Vatican II emphasized an evangelical and ecumenical spirit towards Christian communities not in union with the Bishop of Rome. This change of direction has ignited an inferno of resources designed to woo back Evangelical Protestants into the Roman Catholic community. The Protestant field was ripe for such a Roman Catholic harvest. The current disdain for creedal Christianity among Protestants has set the stage for Evangelicals to be enticed by the promise of an infallible interpreter who is able to unite their non-denominational confusion into a monolithic community, claiming an unbroken succession of doctrine going back to the Apostles. This also means that an urgent need has been created to defend the supreme authority of the Scriptures. Praise God, David King and William Webster have met that need in "Holy Scripture: The Ground and Pillar of our Faith."
King and Webster demonstrate, in a comprehensive and unprecedented manner, that the unbroken succession of true Apostolic doctrine includes that which was defended by the Protestant Reformers who held to the doctrine of Sola Scriptura. There is no topic more important to the discussion of the issues that separate the Protestant and the Roman Catholic churches than this one of authority. Roman Catholics have exerted much energy in trying to topple the Protestant doctrine of Sola Scriptura, claiming it is unbiblical, illogical, and unhistorical.
