About-

Loisy's book was originally written as a response to Adolf von Harnack's What is Christianity? Its importance revolves around both the crucial debate with Harnack and the intrinsic merit of its own scholarly position.

Loisy's The Gospel and the Church serves to remind Catholics of their own inherited past and offers a view of the Protestant past from the point of view of an outsider. For the Protestant reader in particular, it offers an alternative view to Protestant understanding of the relationship of Jesus to the Church.

Bio(s)-

Alfred Loisy, a controversial figure much of his life, studied at the Institut Catholique in Paris from 1881 to 1893. His work on the historical-critical method brought condemnation by Cardinal Richard in 1893 and excommunication by Pius X in 1908. During this period he came under the influence of John Henry Newman's An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine: The Gospel and the Church and thereby brought to a head the whole problem of Modernism in the Roman Catholic Church. Bernard B. Scott, who wrote the introduction to this volume, teaches New Testament at the St. Meinrad School of Theology and is also Academic Dean there.
