5.0 out of 5 stars tradition and the Bride of Christ 25 July 2007
By matt
Format:Hardcover
I would give this book 10 stars if I could. Not only does Congar present his thesis with great expertise, he covers ALL the bases in regards to tradition, scripture, and the Church just as the subtitle says. He's done his homework, now do yours! Protestants beware!

This will not be a quick read, however. You'll need to take some time to chew on this one. Other books which you may want to look at include: "Not by Scripture Alone" by Sungenis, "By What Authority?" by Shea, "Eucharist" by Bouyer, "the Christian Tradition" in 5 volumes by Jaraslov Pelikan, "Common Ground" by Bajis, "The Vindication of Tradition" by Pelikan, and "The Orthodox Way" by Bishop Kallistos Ware.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very informative and practical 13 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This work is a classic in the field of historical theology, in which the author recounts the history of "tradition," from scriptural, patristic and medieval sources, then attempts to find the common threads that run through Church history. Congar dispels many myths and superstitions about the Catholic conception of Tradtion. Unfortunately, this work and its conclusions are largely ignored by conservatives.

5.0 out of 5 stars contra sola scriptura 6 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
great place to start if you ever wondered about the historical nature of the keystone of Protestant theology, and why it fails to produce the truth and secure the Church. The Holy Spirit, living in the Church, is what constitutes the foundation of truth and unity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 24 Mar 2013
By rjjrm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The fullest and most convincing explanation and justification for non-Biblical Catholic tradition and traditions ever written. The protestant doctrine of "by the Bible alone" (sola Scriptura) is both unbiblical (it's found nowhere in the Bible) and untraditional (it was rejected by the Fathers of the Church and never taught by any of the Apostles - in fact, in several places in his letters St. Paul asks his readers to follow the oral [unwritten] traditions that he has taught them). This book provides all of the evidence for tradition, from the Bible [both Old and New Testaments] to the Church Fathers down to the Middle Ages, as the necessary complement, along with a valid teaching authority (bishops in apostolic succession), to Sacred Scripture. From the beginning of Christianity, the rule of faith has been Bible + Tradition, both interpreted within a living Church led by legitimate spiritual authority (magisterium)... not the Bible alone, much less one's private interpretation of it. The protestant doctrines of Christianity "by the Bible alone" and salvation "by faith alone" (which is contradicted by the Letter of James, several letters of Paul, and most importantly, Jesus' own teachings on salvation in the Gospels) were both inventions of the ex-Catholic monk Martin Luther in the 16th century.
