John Calvin On Bible Onlyism

Here's another interesting quote from Sze Zeng's Blog:
"...John Calvin belongs to that part of the Christian tradition which affirmes philosophical achievements... It has been said that Reformed theology consists of "the Bible, the whole Bible, and nothing but the Bible." Of course, Calvin affirms the centrality of the Scripture, but, by his example, he suggests that one who knows only the Bible does not even know the Bible."
(Charles Partee, Calvin and Classical Philosophy, p.146. Bold added.
