Vatican II: Forty Personal Storiesby William Madges
From the beginning, Christians have been people who tell stories. Today, as the Vatican II generation grows older, it's time to tell the stories of the council, what it meant in the lives of that generation, and what it means in the lives of the generations that follow them. William Madges and Michael Daley have gathered forty personal stories of women and men who took part in the council, were there at the time, or saw the course of their lives change dramatically because of it. Along with Madges's and Daley's insightful introductions to the major themes of the council, Vatican II: Forty Personal Stories highlights the momentous events that have shaped the Catholic Church for the past forty years. Catholics of the Vatican II generation will see some of their own personal experiences reflected in these stories, and perhaps come to new understandings about the events of their lives. High school and college students will find here a great introduction to the council and why it's still so significant to their lives today.
