The church and the Bible by B. C Butler( Book )

5 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The result of modern Biblical criticism has been to cast doubt in many minds on the traditional doctrine of the inspiration of the Bible. The author of this book advocates a whole-hearted acceptance of critical method and seeks to show that Biblical inspiration is not thereby impugned. Emphasizing that the message of the Old and the New Testaments is Christ, he shows the place of the Bible in the life of the Church and of her members and suggests that Biblical study may pave the way towards the healing of divisions between those who believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
The Vatican Council, 1869-1870 : based on Bishop Ullathorne's letters by Cuthbert Butler( Book )

13 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was written before the advent of the Second Vatican Council. We find this note in the Preface: "The news that there will shortly be held a second Vatican Council has awakened world-wide interest. Many questions at once suggest themselves. What is a General Council of the Church? What sort of agenda will the Council have before it? What are the powers of such a Council? What happened at the First Vatican Council, nearly a hundred years ago? The present work...provides a convenient answer to the last of these questions."

Why Christ by B. C Butler( Book )

6 editions published between 1960 and 1971 in English and Polish and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows that Christianity meets man at the point of his deepest need, and that its message takes account of perhaps the gravest difficulty that our reason has to face in seeking a criterion for living: the difficulty that reasonable men, seeking such a criterion by the unaided light of their own reason, have reached such diverse and contradictory conclusions. The conclusion of the book is that Christianity, when examined honestly and carefully, is compelling to the human mind: 'When a man has once realized at all deeply its nature, its adaptation to our human needs, and its consonance with the verdict of our conscience, it is unlikely that he will ever find profound and lasting satisfaction until he has made the vision his own.'
