Most widely held works by Karl Adam
The spirit of Catholicism by Karl Adam( Book )

181 editions published between 1605 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 2,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What are the fundamental attributes of the Catholic Church? What is the source from which it has drawn vigor and life through its two thousand years of life on earth? What are the secret sources of its incredible vitality in the world today? The author answers these and many other questions about the nature and structure of the Church. He examines the essential nature of the Catholic Church from the basic premise that it was expressly founded by Christ, traces its historical development and analyzes its actual functioning through the ages
The Son of God by Karl Adam( Book )

110 editions published between 1034 and 1992 in 6 languages and held by 982 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We must either give our consent to the historical existence of the whole Christ, the Christ of the miracles, or openly in the face of all the historical evidence venture the assertion that the Christ of the Gospels never existed." (Ch. 1) The author's point, that the so-called "historical" Christ and the Christ of faith are impossible to separate, is amply documented in these pages. But this is not simply a work of historical apologetics; it is also spiritual writing of the highest quality by a man of great faith
The Christ of faith; the Christology of the church by Karl Adam( Book )

17 editions published between 1957 and 1962 in 3 languages and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catholic dogma is centered on this simple faith: a belief in the historical reality of the Son of God and the revelation of his Spirit through his living Church. The author defines the doctrine of the Church as it is revealed in the life, the works, the personality and the message of Jesus Christ. Through scriptural study, evaluation of historical evidence, comparison of Catholic and non-Catholic theology, the author demonstrates that man's true union with Christ can be achieved only through faith--and that the community of that faith is the Catholic Church
Christ our Brother by Karl Adam( Book )

78 editions published between 1926 and 1979 in 4 languages and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Takes one central doctrine of the Christian faith in relative isolation and endeavours to bring this doctrine home to us in its living reality. Throughout this book there is practically but one subject, our Lord and Saviour, and practically but one aspect of that subject, the sacred humanity. Convinced that dogma is the very structure of the Christian life and that any obscuration of dogma is bound to impair that life, the author would have us meditate upon the doctrinal fact that our Lord is not only true God, but also true and perfect man
Saint Augustine : the odyssey of his soul by Karl Adam( Book )

54 editions published between 1931 and 1977 in 3 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Christians understand the Reformation from only one perspective.
