I had recently read Roots of the Reformation by Fr. Karl Adam who was a German Catholic theologian. I had heard many good things about this book and found it very insightful and an excellent read. Thus I moved on to another book of his The Spirit Of Catholicism.
This was unbelievably good with a unique viewpoint. As a general canvas of the Church and her doctrines while it has some apologetic tone to it, mostly it has a theological viewpoint that looks at the Church on a deeper level. It was one of those books I was tempted to highlight every page. If I hadn’t read the ebook version I could have saved myself time by just dipping the book in highlighter yellow. I just so enjoyed how he wrote on the papacy and it’s connection to love or how the Church is permeated with Christ and united to him. Just such a rich book with much to reflect on.
I found this book on EWTN’s document library.
Since I created an eBook from the text on EWTN’s site I provide it here:
Update: Due to a request here is a copy of “Roots of the Reformation” which was also available in EWTN’s document library.
