Some of R. C. Sproul’s most significant writings have focused on the doctrine of Scipture. Not all of this material is in print, and no volume has ever collected his best writings on this pivotal doctrine.

Part 1 consists of four essays originally published in symposiums: (1) Sola Scriptura: Crucial to Evangelicalism, (2) The Establishment of Scripture, (3) The Case for Inerrancy: A Methodological Analysis, and (4) The Internal Testimony of the Holy Spirit. Part 2, the author’s commentary on the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, treats the Word of God and six things: authority, revelation, inspiration, inerrancy, truth, and you.

The Chicago Statement (1978) and the Ligonier Statement (1973), two documents to which the author was  a key contributor, are reproduced in full.


“Few evangelical leaders in the last half-century have contributed as much to our appreciation of both the message of Scripture and the nature of Scripture itself. I’m glad to be among that throng and am delighted to see R. C. Sproul’s insights on Scripture collected in this marvelous volume.”

—Michael Horton, Professor of Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

“R.C. Sproul has done it again! This master teacher and faithful theologian tackles the most significant issues confronting today’s church in its engagement with Holy Scripture. Scripture Alone brings together some of his most significant writings in defense of the inerrancy, authority, and inspiration of the Bible.”

—R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Complete confidence in the Bible as the inerrant, infallible Word of God is essential to the very life of the evangelical church. In Scripture Alone R. C. Sproul offers a full defense of the Reformation doctrine of Scripture. An ideal resource for understanding why we should believe what the Bible says about its own inspiration and authority.”

—Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
