The Second Vatican Council
Message and Meaning
$20.99
($24.95)
Convened by Pope John XXIII, the Second Vatican Council (1962 65) profoundly changed the self-image and life of the Catholic Church. But understanding, interpreting, and implementing Vatican II still remain a task far from completed. Pope Francis has given fresh impetus toward practicing the Council s teaching about a humble, servant Church that pursues justice and peace for the whole world.This book explores and presents Vatican II s developments in doctrine about divine revelation; the nature, mission, and collegiality of the Church; religious freedom; and the divine grace that reaches all human beings. It takes up the profound significance of the liturgy constitution, which opened the way for the Council s subsequent teaching.In documenting the renewal and reform conveyed by the message and meaning of Vatican II, this book illustrates the scholarship and accessible style for which Gerald O Collins has become renowned.
