Description

The Second Vatican Council, which met from 1962 through 1965, is the most significant event in the last 400 years of Christian history. It changed the face of the Roman Catholic Church forever and dramatically affected all the people of the world. Author and theologian Bill Huebsch has provided a thorough and thoroughly readable telling of the story of Vatican II.

This volume paraphrases the texts of nine decrees and three declarations of the council, including the Decree on Ecumenism, the Declaration on Religious Freedom, the Decree on the Appropriate Renewal of Religious Life, and the Declaration on Christian Education.

Praise

"Clear, understandable English."

"Huebsch is at his best in paraphrasing the documents of the Second Vatican Council in clear, understandable English. These volumes will be a service to parish ministers, leaders, and volunteers who desire to bring the vision of Vatican II into the renewal of Church and society."
