Read full description of the books:
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.

Adam was born in Bavaria in 1876. He attended the Philosophical and Theological Seminary at Regensburg and was ordained in 1900. Adam spent the next two years doing parish work. Adam received his doctorate at the University of Munich in 1904.
In 1915, he became a professor of theology in Munich. Two years later, he accepted a chair in moral theology at Strasbourg and in 1919 he went to teach dogmatic theology at the University of Tübingen. He retired from that post in 1949.

Adam is best known for his 1924 work, The Spirit of Catholicism. It has been widely translated, and is still in print today. In The Spirit Of Catholicism, Adam communicates with the laity about the Catholic faith and the Church's role as the keeper of the faith.
