Most widely held works by Louis Bouyer
Newman, his life and spirituality by Louis Bouyer( Book )

55 editions published between 1952 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Henry Newman, recently Beatified by Pope Benedict XVI, was a famous Anglican convert to the Catholic Church, an Oratorian priest, a brilliant author of novels, poems and acclaimed spiritual works, and a renowned preacher. Newman had a great impact on the intellectual and spiritual journey of the author, Fr. Louis Bouyer, who became a famous theologian and spiritual writer. His exchange with the thought of Newman over the years is a model of theological dialogue as Bouyer understood it: the passionate engagement with and free assimilation of all that can illuminate Catholic truth. Bouyer does not see in Newman the eminent Victorian, but a "potential contemporary"; not the subtle philosopher, but a Christian of integrity who sought all his life to follow Christ and did so with an edifying fidelity. Bouyer studied important unpublished documents by Newman at the Birmingham oratory and addressed the delicate question of Newman's sensitive temperament, the key to entering the world of this great theologian. For Bouyer, one of the principle elements of the spiritual universe of Newman is a genuine mysticism of Christ: "Irreplaceable mirror outside of which God's radiance eludes fallen man and only appears as shadow." Bouyer shows that as St. Augustine was the great apostle to the early Church, and St. Thomas Aquinas was to the Middle Ages, so is Newman that for modern times. A work of major significance for anyone who wants to approach the towering figure of John Henry Newman

The word, church and sacraments in Protestantism and Catholicism by Louis Bouyer( Book )

24 editions published between 1960 and 2004 in French and English and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This classic work seeks to foster unity and deeper understanding among Christians by comparing the Catholic and Protestant views of Scripture, Church authority and the sacraments. The author, one of the greatest theologians of the 20th century and a convert from Protestantism, 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
Introduction to spirituality by Louis Bouyer( Book )

13 editions published between 1961 and 1991 in English and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To seminarians, priests, novices, religious and all the faithful who wish to deepen their spiritual life by going to the great sources of Holy Scripture illuminated by Catholic tradition, this 'Introduction' is offered for what it is and nothing more: an initiation into the fundamental problems of every spiritual life and into the perennial principles governing the solution of these problems. I have consistently avoided making this a work of special pleading for any one side or school of thought, since I am convinced that there is only one Catholic spirituality worthy of the name: that of the Gospel as the Church proclaims it to us: that is, as it came from Christ Himself through the Apostles, 'the same yesterday, today and forever'."--Foreword

The Christian mystery : from pagan myth to Christian mysticism by Louis Bouyer( Book )

17 editions published between 1989 and 2004 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Bouyer, one of the most gifted and internationally renowned theologians of our time, explores the importance of mystery and mysticism in the Christian tradition. He first shows how myth and mystery, as understood and practiced by pagan, Hellenistic and classical cults, gave way through the ages to Christian mysticism and spirituality. In this historical treatment, there are many insights into the religious practices of the earliest known societies. Bouyer goes on to examine the development of mysticism and spirituality in the Christian West up to the present day: looking at the psychology of mysticism found in certain celebrated mystics; comparing Christian with cosmic, Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist mysticism; and considering the nature of mystic experience

The spirituality of the New Testament and the Fathers by Louis Bouyer( Book )

16 editions published between 1960 and 1986 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first part of this volume, the author pays special attention to the Jewish foundations of Christianity before examining in detail the teaching and influence of Jesus, the Primitive Church and St. Paul, the Synoptic Gospels, the Johnannine writings, the Epistle to the Hebrews and the epistles linked with the names of Peter, James and Jude. Part Two describes and discusses the spirituality of the first Christian generations, the martyrs, the problem of Gnosis in its different manifestations, the different schools of monasticism and mysticism in Eastern and Western Christianity and the writings and teachings of the Fathes, concluding with St. Benedict. This history will be, in the final analysis, the search for, and the bringing to light of, the integral witness of tradition and of Christian experience to the whole concrete reality of 'life in Christ Jesus'."
