In his latest work, popular author Patrick Madrid explores the issue of Catholic-Protestant relations and the possibility of unification. He does this by analyzing the work of one of the greatest twentieth-century theologians—Fr. Yves Congar. Areas covered include Congar’s ecumenical vocation, the Early Church Fathers, the role of the Holy Spirit in the Church’s transmission of the gospel, St. Thomas Aquinas, and even a discussion on Church development if the Reformation had never happened. This comprehensive work will be of great value to all who are interested in Catholic-Protestant relations and to those who pray and work for unity.

The relationship between Scripture, tradition, revelation, and authority is a tangled question in dispute between Catholics and Protestants. Patrick Madrid’s scholarly book analyses this question thoroughly, with the help of the best insights offered by Yves Congar OP in the 20th century. These are ongoing and important questions, intelligently articulated by a Catholic mind well-trained through engagement in modern apologetics.
