Editorial Reviews

Review


"Almost every chapter shows the breathtaking steps taken in the Council to engage openly, evenly, and critically with the complexity of the modern world and to renew and apply the teachings of the Church in this new historical context...[This volume] sets the stage for a new chapter in the interpretation of the Council which might move beyond the liberal and conservative judges...I strongly recommend Renewal which will, I think, mark a turning point in the American Catholic appropriation of Vatican II and help build a momentum for a fresh reading of the Council which is slowly gathering momentum."

38 of 42 people found the following review helpful By Joseph M. Hennessey on October 21, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a very good review of the contents of the 16 documents of the Second Vatican Council. Each article also included a brief history of what led up to that particular document, and some indication of how that document had or had not been 'received' since then. In general, i wish there had been more theological and cultural analysis, although then the book would be longer than its already daunting 442 pp. The best feature of this book is captured by the subtitle, "Renewal within Tradition." In other words, each chapter advocates a 'hermeneutic of contintuity," which locates each document within the context of the previous 20 Ecumenical Councils, rather than a 'hermeneutic of rupture,' (cousin of hermeneutic of suspicion), which attempts to create an adversary, revolutionary relationship between Vatican II and the previous councils.

26 of 31 people found the following review helpful By K. Heck on September 24, 2008
Format: Hardcover
Matthew Lamb and Matthew Levering have assembled a remarkable group of contributors to this landmark volume on the documents of Vatican II. The scholarship represented here comes from Africa, Europe, and all corners of North America. Truly a book indicative of the universal Church, and most importantly, of the 21st century. Very readable, and an important resource for scholars and non-scholars alike. Be prepared to think.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this for a class on the four constitutions of Vatican II. This has some excellent essays on the council, the documents, and the history surrounding the Council. It is a wonderful resource on what the council actually did and taught, aside from the documents of the Council themselves, instead of the silly "spirit of Vatican II" nonsense that has been produced since the Council. This is an excellent source for serious scholars of the Council. However, it is not a light read; not for the faint of heart.

A great book, bringing into limelight the spirit of Vatican 11. Each scholar, a master in his/her field did a good academic job to convince readers that that timely council was not a waste. Priests, religious, laity and people of ecumenical mind must love this collection of experts. C. K Anyanwu
