These Are The Words with which members of the Evangelicals and Catholics Together project closed their first joint statement in 1994. In that same spirit they offer the significant recent statement "Your Word Is Truth," which is the centerpiece of this exceptional book on the nature of Scripture. On the long list of traditional disagreements between evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics is the relationship between Scripture and tradition. It is commonly felt that there can be no way of getting over or around the fundamental difference between the Protestant principle of "Scripture alone" and the Catholic reliance on both Scripture and authoritative tradition. Your Word Is Truth takes a hard look at this historic rift. The result of intensive discussion by distinguished Evangelical and Catholic theologians, this book explores the ways both communions handle Scripture and tradition and searches for points of contact. While not claiming to resolve all the differences that exist, this volume does go a long way toward recasting this old dispute in a new and promising light.
