Reviews - What do our customers think?
Simply Amazing!!  Oct 31, 2007
I have heard this author speak in person and he is just as amazing in print!! Some may agree with the previous reviewer that reading the actual documents themselves or Flannery's version is more helpful, and that's fine. What you simply cannot do without is the first volume of Huebsch's 3 volume set. In it he paints a vivid, enjoyable, informative picture of the situation preceding and surrounding the council. As someone born at the tail-end of the 1970's I knew nothing about the council before reading Huebsch's books. His first book was so interesting and wonderful that it only made me want to learn more! Imagine that! A book making a Catholic want to read more Church documents! Wonderful! Loved them! Go Bill!
oh please.  Dec 16, 2006
I've read the Vatican II in plain english and Whole Community Catechesis by Bill Hubsch. the other reviewer should give it a rest. Bill is a breath of fresh air and a learned man. Let the man talk and let his views be heard as part of the Catholic Church. We're big enough, we're old enough, and doggone it, people like him.
No need for this  Dec 24, 2005
The idea of putting the documents of Vatican II in the hands of Catholics is laudable. It is deplorable that so few Catholics have read these documents. Many have been given the idea that these documents are only for the clergy or for theology dweebs.
So I was excited when I saw the cover of this book -- but I wondered what "in plain English" meant. I had always thought that the "Flannery translation" was plain enough. It is clear and non-ugly. What Huebsch has given us is, by his own admission, not a translation but a paraphrase. The question arises: Why in Heaven's Name do we need a paraphrase, given that we already have a translation which is eminently readable?
I haven't been able to answer that question. To me, the Hueblehized text is stilted and difficult to read. It would be so, I think, even without the ditzy fashion in which he aligns the text on the page.
If it were within my means, I would find every individual who owns this book, take it out of his or her hands, replace the book with Flannery's translation, and say to the beneficiary: "There. Now you have a reliable and readable record of the Constitutions of Vatican II.
I can think of no more effective way of devaluing the Council than to have this book in the hands of English-speaking Catholics.
