This is what countless Christians believe as they look to the Bible for a sure, sufficient source to form and guide their doctrines. But is this approach true and is it what Jesus intended? The Bible Alone? presents a competing look at the biblical roots, historical precedent, and logic behind using only the Bible as an infallible source of truth. This short book affirms the importance of Scripture as a divinely given foundation for our faith and also encourages the reader to consider the need for an authority established by Christ for its trustworthy interpretation.

Does the Church teach that the Bible is a faithful record of God's revealed truth,or a purely human account of mankind's limited understanding of God, filled with numerous errors? Are the books of the New Testament historical accounts by contemporary witnesses or merely the theological reflections of later generations? For Catholic Scripture scholar and best-selling author Dr. Scott Hahn, the issue is really quite simple: Can you trust the Bible or can't you?
In his classic series, Can You Trust the Bible?, Dr. Hahn irrefutably demonstrates how the ancient Catholic teaching that the Bible is free from all error, was actually reaffirmed by recent papal encyclicals and, despite claims to the contrary, by the Vatican II document on the Bible Dei Verbum as well. He forcefully asserts that the position taken by many Catholic Biblical scholars, that the Bible is free from error only in religious and moral matters, is hardly a "new" development achieved by scientific methods of analysis, but was explicitly condemned by Pope Leo XIII, Pope Pius XII, and Vatican II!
According to Dr.
Hahn, modernist attempts to allow for "errors" in the Bible is actually a bad
solution to a false problem. You'll discover that apparent "contradictions"
and "errors" in Scripture only come about when scholars misuse scripture in
ways it never intended (for example, attempting to discover astrophysics in
the Book of Genesis!)
In this landmark presentation, Dr. Hahn exposes the Catholic confusion about Biblical inerrancy and traces it back to a deliberate misreading of a key passage in Dei Verbum. He shows how a poor translation of the Latin text allowed some liberal Bible scholars to argue that Vatican II supported the idea that there are errors in Scripture. Unpacking such pre-Vatican II encyclicals as Pope Leo XIII's Providentissimus Deus and Pius XII's Humani Generis and Divino Afflante Spiritu, Dr.Hahn shows how the skeptical position that is accepted without question by some scholars today is definitely not new, but can be traced back to 19th century liberal Protestantism!
In this eye-opening series, Dr. Hahn invites you to consider the question that St. Augustine asked St. Jerome, "If God is the Author of Scripture, why would He deceive us by putting errors into the text?" Dr. Hahn reveals that before Leo XIII settled the issues of inspiration and inerrancy many good theologians and even saints held different views about Biblical inspiration. St. Robert Bellarmine, a doctor of the Church, held a theory of Biblical inspiration known as "divine assistance." John Henry Cardinal Newman believed in "limited inerrancy." In this six-tape series, Dr. Scott Hahn explores and explains various theories all the way up to the rise of modern critical methods and the rampant skepticism that followed.
While most Catholic scholars now accept with certainty that much of the New Testament is not historical, many Protestant scholars are discovering new respect for the Church's classical claims for the Bible. In fact, you'll discover why 30 years after the skeptical methods of liberal Protestantism hijacked Catholic Biblical criticism; the Protestants themselves are now abandoning these same methods as hopelessly inadequate! Can you trust the Bible? Order this set today and discover the truth!
