The Spirit of Catholicism is a brilliant and widely influential reflection on the fundamental nature of the Catholic faith and the Catholic Church. First appearing in 1924, this is a truly pioneering work of Catholic theology, one that had a major influence on subsequent theology.

This is as clear and powerful a statement of the fundamental ideas of Catholicism as can be found in any modern book. (Kirkus Reviews)
