I've heard the question from Roman Catholics [and Orthodox I presume] that how can protestants hold to Sola Scriptura (scripture alone) when what books should or should not be included in the canon cannot be determined with any certainty and/or authority from our traditions. The charge is that our history for the church begins in 1517 (implying that protestants are like Joseph Smith, saying that we restored what was lost). For example, Roman Catholics appeal to the council of Carthage in AD 397 where the canon was supposedly set in stone. What "proof" or "evidence" would you give as to what books should be included in the canon and why?
