Book Recommendation: Scripture Alone by RC Sproul

The Rev. Dr. RC Sproul is one of the best Christian writers, thinkers and teachers around. His book, "Scripture Alone" is top notch for those wondering about the nature, authority and truthfulness of the bible.

Every generation of Christians since the time of Jesus has had to face attacks upon Scripture from an unbelieving and hostile world. And in every generation, men and women have stood for the absolute inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture as essential to the health and welfare of the church.

From his work with the International Council on Biblical Inerrancy to his many lectures and writings, Dr. R.C. Sproul has been a leader in the defense of the infallibility and inerrancy of Scripture during our time. This new book collects four previously published articles by Dr. Sproul on this subject, The Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy and his commentary on it, and The Ligonier Statement on biblical authority, which helped lay the groundwork for the work of the International Council...more

I'll be borrowing from it a little when we come to the "scripture" section of our Systematic Theology class so if you want to get a head start, buy it now. If you are not in the class, buy it anyway(follow the link above)...I can think of few better resources for understanding the bible.
