Description

Old controversies sometimes renew themselves as current ones, and this appears to be true of the sixteenth-century Protestant-Catholic debate about the relationship between Scripture and church. Does Scripture precede the church, and provide the 'rule' against which the teaching of the church is to be measured, or does the church precede Scripture, and provide the only context in which Scripture may rightly be understood? This lecture will explore this issue in the context of significant contemporary debate about it within the contemporary Protestant church in the West.
