Yves Congar (1904-1995), a French Dominican theologian, was a prophet in the Church of the mid-twentieth century, persecuted by his church in the 1950s only to be perhaps the single most formative influence on Vatican II. Cardinal Avery Dulles has said that Vatican II 'could almost be called Congar's council.") To the extent that the agenda of Vatican II remains to be fulfilled, one could say that it is congar's vision that provides the ongoing agenda of thechurch. This volume provides real insight and fresh hope for those concerned to breathe new life into the Church of the 21st century.
