The Westminster Doctrine anent Holy Scripture: Tractates by A. A. Hodge and B. B. Warfield was published at the close of the nineteenth century by the Free Church of Scotland to address the controversy brewing over scriptural inspiration. Liberalism had nearly succeeded in stripping the divine inspiration and authority from Scripture, and fundamentalists responded with a doctrine of inerrancy. This series of tracts by A. A. Hodge and B. B. Warfield contain a succinct summary of biblical inspiration and respond to its objections. Both Hodge and Warfield defend the authenticity and integrity of the books of the Old and New Testament, and examine both textual and historical evidence. This volume also contains a lengthy appendix on the doctrine of biblical inspiration in the Free Church of Scotland.
