A CONCISE GUIDE TO THE DOCUMENTS OF VATICAN II
In this indispensable guide, Edward P. Hahnenberg outlines each of the documents produced by the Second Vatican Council. Offering the background for each work, its language and context, this book provides a clear and concise overview of the Council's work and its significance in the life of the church. Each document's history, content, major concerns and effects are considered. Significant quotes provide a sample of the language, and contemporary topics provide discussion opportunities. Scripture scholars and students—and every Catholic—will find this a valuable resource. (Item #81582) $19.99

    

KEYS TO THE COUNCIL
As the church marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, too few Catholics have an adequate grasp of what the council contributed to the life of the church. The problem is understandable. The Second Vatican Council produced, by far, more document pages than any other council. Consequently, any attempt to master its core teachings can be daunting. There is a danger of missing the forest for the trees. With this in mind, Keys to the Council identifies twenty key conciliar passages, central texts that help us appreciate the vision of the council fathers.

Each chapter places the given passage in its larger historical context, explores its fundamental meaning and significance, and finally considers its larger significance for the life of the church today. Chapters include exploration of Sacrosanctum Concilium’s demand for “full, conscious, and active participation” in the liturgy; Lumen Gentium’s eucharistic ecclesiology; Gaudium et Spes’s vision of marriage as an intimate partnership of life and love; Nostra Aetate’s approach to non-Christian religions; and more.

Vatican II: Fifty Personal Stories (Revised, Expanded)

Marty, 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 Taizé, Cardinal Francis Arinze, Elizabeth Johnson, David Hollenbach, and many more.

What Catholics believe (doctrine)

The Voice of Vatican II: Words for our Church Today

At the turn of this century, Pope John Paul II called for a new season of engaging the sixteen documents of the Second Vatican Council. Although these documents are part of the Church's official teaching, reading the constitutions, degrees, and declarations can be daunting, especially for the average Catholic.

In The Voice of Vatican II, Peter A. Huff uses the cathedral as metaphor to help readers hear and relate the documents to their experience today. Beginning at the altar with the Council's first document, Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, he explores each in turn, explaining their significance today.

"The pilgrim departs a great cathedral rejuvenated," writes Huff. "What awaits the sincere reader of Vatican II texts is a life-changing encounter with the living Church and the Church's living Lord." (Item #80500) $6.99

     

 

Vatican II is known to every Catholic at least by name, but
we’re a little skimpy on the details. What happened there? Why did it take place? Why have there been mixed reactions to it? Most importantly, what is the impact of the Second Vatican Council on the People of the Church now?

Peter A. Huff, in Vatican II: Its Impact on You, answers these questions and more in a lively, brief, easy-to-read, fresh overview of the event that has had the greatest impact onthe Catholic experience today.

Vatican II, the brainchild of Blessed Pope John XXIII, spanned from 1962 to 1965, attracted 2,500 bishops to Vatican City, and produced inspiring activity and documents from extraordinary personalities.

This book analyzes Vatican II’s sources, context, decisions, and ongoing impact. Huff argues that "we rightly associate the council with change, but it is just as correctly portrayed as a strategic preservation of Catholicism's time-tested heritage."

While written from a Catholic perspective, all Christians will find Vatican II: Its Impact on You a fascinating look at a time in recent world history when truth and grace joined for what the author calls "the most important religious event of the twentieth century." (Item #84208) $6.99

   
Vatican II in Plain English

 

The Council: 3 VOLUMES
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. In this three-volume set, author and theologian Bill Huebsch has provided a thorough and thoroughly readable telling of the story of Vatican II.

The Council. This volume describes the Church on the eve of the council, gives an easy-to-read version of the opening speech of John XXIII and other speeches, provides a chronology of major events in Vatican II's unfolding story, lists all previous church councils, and offers biographies of key players at Vatican II, as well as a summary of each document.

The Constitutions. This volume paraphrases the texts of the four constitutions—on the liturgy, the Church, divine revelation, and the Church in the modern world—in easily readable sense lines and invites the reader to better understand and internalize the message of the council fathers in a spirit of reverence, prayer, and reflection.

The Decrees and Declarations. This volume paraphrases the 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. (Item #81087) $48.00

   

 

As the church marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, too few Catholics have an adequate grasp of what the council contributed to the life of the church. The problem is understandable. The Second Vatican Council produced, by far, more document pages than any other council. Consequently, any attempt to master its core teachings can be daunting. There is a danger of missing the forest for the trees. With this in mind, Keys to the Council identifies twenty key conciliar passages, central texts that help us appreciate the vision of the council fathers.

Each chapter places the given passage in its larger historical context, explores its fundamental meaning and significance, and finally considers its larger significance for the life of the church today. Chapters include exploration of Sacrosanctum Concilium’s demand for “full, conscious, and active participation” in the liturgy; Lumen Gentium’s eucharistic ecclesiology; Gaudium et Spes’s vision of marriage as an intimate partnership of life and love; Nostra Aetate’s approach to non-Christian religions; and more. (Item #81580) $19.95

   

The Second Vatican Council, summoned by Pope John XXIII on Christmas day 1961, began in October 1962. Meeting in four autumn sessions from 1962 to 1965, Pope John’s Council was a watershed in both world Christian and world religious history.

With brevity and insight Giuseppe Alberigo tells the story of Vatican II Council for a generation that has come of age since its close. He shows us a Council that Pope John called to renew not just the church but Christianity as a whole. He shows that that vision was realized in ways far beyond its participants’ ability to understand.

The drama of the Council comes alive, as the assembled bishops and their advisors work on themes that transformed the global landscape of religion, bringing Catholicism into dialogue with other religious traditions and establishing a whole new spirit of intra-Christian dialogue. Alberigo also suggests ways in which the spirit of the Council has not been implemented. (Item #81581) $24.00
