That the Bible as we have it today is the inspired Word of God, and that it is authoritative and sufficient for all faith and practice, is the foundation on which all other Christian doctrines stand. This truth must be continually affirmed and defended. Sola Scriptura; The Protestant Position on the Bible does this in a way that will prove profitable to both laypeople and professional clergy. I highly recommend it. --Jerry Bridges: Bible teacher, Conference speaker, Author of The Pursuit of Holiness and other titles
Christians are Bible people. We are made followers of Christ by the message of the Bible and continue to be guided in the ways of Christ by what the Bible says. The Bible is the Spirit's sword, and we must learn to wield it with confidence in order to live effectively in this world. This book will help you do that. The contributors are trustworthy teachers who understand the importance of the recovery Sola Scriptura, not only for the sixteenth century, but for the twenty-first. I am grateful to Reformation Trust for making it available once again. --Thomas K. Ascol: Senior pastor: Grace Baptist Church, Cape Coral, Florida
The Christian doctrine of Scripture, that the Bible alone is the Word of God, that it clearly and infallibly reveals the triune God and His truth in Christ, has always been at the heart of the faith. Since the sixteenth century, there have been three great assaults on this doctrine: the Romanist claim to authority over Scripture, the modernist rejection of the authority and truthfulness of Scripture, and the late-modern denial of the clarity and sufficiency of Scripture. The republication of Sola Scriptura is a most welcome response to each of these. This book is more relevant and necessary today than when it first appeared. --R. Scott Clark: Professor of church history and historical theology Westminster Seminary California, Escondido, California

Much of the debate around the issue is, of course, between the Protestant position and the Roman doctrine of an authoritative repository of Tradition that combines with Scripture to make up the Word of God. It's impossible to deal with those differences without some polemics, but the tone with which the writers make their points isn't strident and their representation of the other side's position doesn't dwell on the most outrageous examples to make their arguments easier to make.
The writers also make ample mention of the practical denial of scriptural authority within evangelicalism. In many ways, this is a more insidious threat, since it claims to recognize scripture as its standard while undermining it in dozens of little ways that leave people with no foundation for faith.
Each of these chapters can be- and have been- subjects of many volumes through the centuries. If you're looking for an easily digestible introduction to the issue, this is an excellent place to start.
This short book does a good job of defining the words, establishing the issues, and starting you on your journey of sola scriptura. This book is not intended to be exhaustive and should not be sought for it. Good authors on a much needed truth in today's Church. Final Grade - A-
