Signposts: Why Sola Scriptura Matters

This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Central to the Reformation’s theology was the idea of sola Scriptura, meaning “The Bible alone.” What does sola Scriptura mean practically for the Christian life? Is it a workable doctrine, or does it lead to a fractured, individualistic spiritual life?

In this episode of Signposts I talk about an evangelical theology of Scripture, and why saying “The Bible alone” is not a recipe for an anti-authority Christianity.

Only when we see how lost we are, we can find our way again. Only when we bury what’s dead can we experience life again. Only when we lose our religion can we be amazed by grace again.
