THE PROTESTANT DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE
by Cornelius Van Til

Nutley, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed, 1967. 156 pp.
The first in a series of six volumes published under the auspices of the den Dulk Christian Foundation (Ripon, CA).

“The studies presented in this series are written with a view to the defense of the doctrine of the free grace of God through Christ as he testifies of himself in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. They are written from the point of view of one who believes the Reformed Faith to be the most truly biblical expression of the Christian Faith. They are written from the point of view of one who believes that a world that lies in darkness needs, therefore, to hear about the Reformed Faith.
Moreover, if the world needs to hear the Reformed Faith, the statement of this Faith must be true to the historic Reformed creeds. The Reformed Faith, to be heard, must, therefore, be set over against neo-orthodoxy.
These studies are merely student syllabi; they are not to be regarded as published books.
These studies are produced under the auspices of the den Dulk Christian Foundation of Ripon, California.”
