Tradition and the Church by Msgr. George Agius (1873–1962) is one of the finest books ever written on the subject of Tradition and its role in the Deposit of Faith—the body of revealed truth found in both Tradition and Scripture. First published in 1928, it provides solid doctrinal coverage concerning the most important aspects of Tradition.

Msgr. Agius reaffirms the Church’s teaching that Tradition precedes Scripture and that the early Church was inexorably in favor of preserving and fostering both. Masterfully written and readable, countless readers will grow deeper in their appreciation of the Tradition that was handed down by Christ through the apostles and entrusted exclusively to the teaching office of the Church. 

The author was a Maltese priest who, in 1897, enrolled at the Gregorian University in Rome, where he became lifelong friends with his classmate Fr. Eugenio Pacelli, the future Pius XII. He was later invited to the newly created Diocese of Lincoln, Nebraska, where in 1902, he assumed duties as secretary and chancellor of the first bishop. Tradition and the Church is a book every Catholic should read in order to understand and appreciate how the Church has transmitted the Faith since apostolic times.
