Reviews - What do customers think about Vatican II in Plain English: The Council?
An indispensable reference tool Jul 9, 2002
This three-volume set (including one on the Second Vatican Council, one on the Constitutions of the Council, and one on the Decrees and Declarations of the Council) is the best, most user-friendly reference tool I've seen about this landmark Council. It is difficult to overstate the effects of SV2 on how Catholics "do" church. Whether you are only casually interested in learning more about the Church, or are a convert who would like to understand more about why Catholics react the way they do to certain issues, this series is for you. (And while you're at it, pick up a copy of "With Mary in Prayer" to understand a bit more about her!)
