Whitaker's design (prosecuted throughout his lifetime) was to deal systematically with the major points of controversy between the Protestants and the Roman Catholics; his Disputation on Holy Scripture was the first in this series, and the only one translated from Latin into English (of which we are aware).
In this book we find the following six main chapters: "Of the number of the Canonical Books of Scripture," "Of the Authentic Edition and Versions of the Scriptures," "Of the Authority of Scripture," "Of the Perspicuity of Scripture," "Of the Interpretation of Scripture," "Of the Perfection of Scripture, against Unwritten Traditions," as well as Whitaker's "Preface to the Controversies, Delivered to the Audience at Cambridge."
This is a first-rate classic on some of the most foundational teaching of the Faith, not to be missed by the serious Christian, the scholar or anyone seeking ultimate truth.
