Publisher's Description

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of Vatican II (1962-65), a watershed event in the history of the church whose meaning and interpretation continue to inspire heated debate. In this book fifty leading theologians, scholars, and pastoral leaders offer their own assessment of the meaning of the Council, in many cases drawing on their personal experience as witnesses or participants. The contributors are a who's- who of modern Catholic voices: Francis Murphy (who, as "Xavier Rynne," penned an inside account of the Council for The New Yorker, Lisa Sowle Cahill, John O'Malley, Joan Chittister, Gregory Baum, Michael Novak, Basil Pennington, Richard McBrien, Cardinal Avery Dulles, John Dominic Crossan, Joseph Komonchak, Brother Roger of Taiz, Cardinal Francis Arinze, Elizabeth Johnson, David Hollenbach, and many more.
