Vatican II - The crisis and the promise

With "Vatican II: The Crisis and the Promise", Alan Schreck rescues the misunderstood council from the clutches of dissenters on the Left and the Right.

In an accessible Q&A format, he guides readers through a tour of the important conciliar documents and explains the cultural milieu in which the bishops gathered from 1962-1965. Terms like "collegiality" and "people of God" are explained crisply, concisely and always charitably. He does this mostly by -- surprise! -- citing the documents themselves.

What does Vatican II teach about priestly celibacy? women's "ordination"? the role of the laity? You'll find answers here.
