On the long list of traditional disagreements between evangelicalProtestants and Roman Catholics is the relationship between scriptureand tradition. It is commonly felt there can be no way of gettingover or around the fundamental difference between the Protestantprinciple of "scripture alone" and the Catholic reliance onboth scripture and authoritative tradition."Your Word Is Truth takes a hard look at this historic rift. Theresult of intensive discussion by distinguished Evangelical and Catholictheologians, these chapters explore the ways both communionshandle scripture and tradition and search for points of contact.While this volume does not claim to resolve all the differences thatexist, it does go a long way toward recasting this old dispute in anew and promising light.
