The author offers an unusual blend of official Catholic teaching - juxtaposed with positions of contemporary theologians - that will both appeal to and enlighten all who are interested in what has been happening in the church since Vatican II. This is a clearly presented introduction to Catholicism that answers the question of what it means to be a believing, practicing Catholic in the Church in light of Vatican II ecclesiology and contemporary theology. Dennis Doyle presents a solidly academic yet lively approach to understanding the workings of the contemporary Catholic Church. He looks at the challenges the church faces, its nature and mission, its symbolic character, its diversity, its leadership, the role of the laity, the meaning of Christian spirituality today, religious communities, the meaning of being a "pilgrim" church, Mary as the model of the church, and much more.
What does it mean to be a Catholic today? Doyle addresses this important question by examining key documents of the Second Vatican Council: Lumen Gentium (Dogmatic Constitution on the Church) and Gaudium et Spes (Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World). He offers an unusual blend of official Catholic teaching juxtaposed with positions of contemporary theologians that will both appeal to and enlighten students.
