William Whitaker (1547-1595) was an Oxford-trained theologian of significant influence and prestige. One of his most important treatises was Disputations on Holy Scripture, a work that set out to explain and defend the principle of Sola Scriptura over and against the arguments of Rome’s foremost apologists.
Matthew D. Shultz is starting a new blog series on William Whitaker’s Disputations at the excellent apologetics blog: Beggars All: Reformation and Apologetics. See links below for a repository of all posts in the study. See the comment section to review the venomous cavils that have already been laid against but the introductory post. This will certainly prove to be a beneficial series, if not one that will enflame the minions of anti-christ.
