Item description for Communion Ecclesiology: Vision and Versions by Dennis M. Doyle...
Overview In this penetrating new study Dennis Doyle notes that scholars as diverse as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Edward Schillebeeckx have been quoted as saying that "communion ecclesiology" is the most basic way to characterize the nature of the church. Yet the term has often been caught up in the divide between left and right in a polarized church. Doyle shows that the notion of communiom among God's people and between them and the triune God is a doctrine that allows for both solid, this-worldly community and a fundamental sense that the Church is essentially rooted in and convoked by God.
Publishers Description Doyle constructs communion ecclesiology as a broad and inclusive category that makes room for a range of legitimate approaches. He examines the approaches of Johann Adam Mohler, Charles Journet, Henri de Lubac, Yves Congar, Karl Rahner, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Elizabeth Johnson, Joseph Ratzinger and many others.

Excellent Aug 13, 2006
This is an excellent introduction to twentieth century "catholic" ecclesiology from de Lubac to Zizioulas. It is a reliable in its analyses and a sure foundation for further reading (if one were to be so inclined). It is unusually well written. I found it generous and honest. I thoroughly recommend it.
