By Fr. Louis Bouyer

The Word, Church and Sacraments in Protestantism and Catholicism┬áis a theological classic. It seeks to foster unity and deeper understanding among Christians by comparing the Catholic and Protestant views of Scripture, Church authority, and the Sacraments. Bouyer contributed significantly to the movement out of which came the Second Vatican Council’s efforts to promote Christian unity. He shows how Catholic teaching is often misunderstood by Catholics and Protestants alike, and how this teaching is fundamentally compatible with key positive elements of Reformation thought. He also examines the main points of disagreement between Catholicism and Protestantism, and demonstrates how Catholicism, properly understood, maintains the theological balance necessary to uphold some of the main truths on which Catholics and Protestants agree. 92 pages.
