Overview

Yves Congar (1904-1995), a French Dominican theologian, was a prophet in the church of the mid-twentieth century, silenced in the 1950s only to become perhaps the single most formative influence on Vatican II. To the extent that the agenda of Vatican II remains to he fulfilled, one could say that it is Congar's vision that provides the ongoing agenda of the church.

Congar's many contributions ranged from ecumenism to social justice, the Holy Spirit to the identity of the church. Perhaps his most significant and far-reaching influence was his commitment to the role of the laity. Throughout his life he embodied the struggle to join faithfulness to the church with an ongoing commitment to reform and renewal. In recognition of his service to the church, Pope John Paul II named him a cardinal just before his death.

This volume provides insight and hope for those concerned to breathe new life into the church of the twenty-first century.
