In the God's Word Alone series, scholar and professor Matthew Barrett explores the historic, heroic adherence to sola scriptura, seeking to return today’s Christians to a biblical understanding of the authority of God’s Word.
Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or solas) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith.
In the God's Word Alone series, scholar and professor Matthew Barrett explores the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine that Scripture alone is the final and decisive authority for God's people. Videos explain the development of this theme in the Reformation and trace the crisis that followed, resulting in a shift away from the authority of Scripture. Each lesson shows that we need to recover a robust doctrine of Scripture's authority in the face of today's challenges and why a solid doctrinal foundation built on God's Word is the best hope for the future of the church.
