Item description for The Road to Renewal: Victor Joseph Reed and Oklahoma Catholicism, 1905-1971 by Jeremy Bonner...
Between 1958 AND 1971, Catholics in Oklahoma emerged from the sheltered world of the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church. Under assault from divisive cultural forces within American society at large, many responded to the deliberations of the Second Vatican Council by embracing a wholesale transformation of the way in which the Church functioned in secular society, a process that brought national attention to a comparatively small Midwestern Catholic Diocese and to its ordinary, Victor Joseph Reed. In this study, Jeremy Bonner explores the process of Catholic renewal at the parish level and assesses the role of Victor Reed as an agent of that process.
