One of the premier issues that divides Protestants from Roman Catholics is the question of the place of Scripture. Protestants declare that the Scriptures alone are the rule of faith and practice, while Roman Catholics assert that it is Scripture and the traditions held by the Church that constitute the final word on a matter. This debate is not new. William Whitaker (1547-1595) championed the Protestant position in this book, first printed in 1588. He deals with the number of canonical books, the authority of Scripture, the perspicuity (clarity) of Scripture, the proper interpretation of Scripture, and the perfection of Scripture against unwritten traditions.

From the Publisher:

"This new edition of William Whitaker's Disputations on Holy Scripture is most welcome. Quite simply, Whitaker's book belongs in the library of evangelical pastors, theologians, and other students of the Bible. It helps us to better understand and defend the doctrine of sola scriptura, and the ways Protestants deflated the innovative claims of post-Tridentine Roman Catholic apologists who touted 'tradition' as an equal authority with the Scripture." -Dr. John Woodbridge (Trinity Evangelical School)

About the Author:

William Whitaker (1547-1595) William Whitaker (sometimes spelled "Whatacre") was born in Lancashire in 1547. He was sent to Trinity College, Cambridge at the age of 18 by his uncle, the dean of St. Paul’s. He was so proficient in languages that he regularly translated books from English into Latin and Greek. He received his Doctor of Divinity degree from Oxford. He served as a professor at Cambridge, where he was highly regarded for his studies and abilities as a teacher and preacher. Whitaker gave himself to such diligent study that it greatly affected his health. Indeed, it is said that he fell sick due to unusual fatigue and lack of sleep, and died in 1595.
