"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."
