Cover ArtScott Swain was interviewed at Logos Reformed about his recent book with Michael Allen, Reformed Catholicity.

Protestants tend to be leery of church confessions, especially when it comes to biblical interpretation, and to believe that the individual’s private judgment about the interpretation of the biblical text is the final court of appeal for theology.

We believe the modern approach to sola scriptura rests upon an unbiblical anthropology and an unbiblical ecclesiology and thus seek to relocate sola Scriptura within the context of a more biblical understanding of humanity and the church.

Also, Michael at Philomythois reflected on the distinction between Sola Scriptura and Solo Scriptura in light of Reformed Catholicity.
