In this indispensable guide, Edward P. Hahnenberg outlines each of the documents produced by the Second Vatican Council. Offering the background for each work, its language and context, this book provides a clear and concise overview of the Council's work and its significance in the life of the church. Each document's history, content, major concerns and effects are considered. Significant quotes provide a sample of the language, and contemporary topics provide discussion opportunities. Scripture scholars and students—and every Catholic—will find this a valuable resource.

On the 50th anniversary of the 20th century's most important religious event there is renewed interest in the Council. Hahnenberg's book provides a concise rendering of key elements for those who prefer not to immerse themselves in the documents themselves.
