LIMITED-TIME OFFER - $14.36 (A 20% Discount): In “Reclaiming Vatican II: What It (Really) Said, What It Means, and How It Calls Us to Renew the Church," Fr. Blake Britton presses beyond the political narrative foisted upon the postconciliar Church and contends that Vatican II was neither conservative nor liberal, but something much more beautiful and challenging. He clears up misconceptions about the council and reveals how—when properly understood and applied—it fosters a richer experience of being in the Church.
He shows how Vatican II promotes a radical return to the Church Fathers and the Scriptures, holding both a commitment to tradition and the need for constant renewal in life-giving balance, recenters the Church on sacred liturgy and encourages both active participation and genuine encounter with transcendence, and charts a clear path for the Church’s renewal and empowers it for evangelism and transformative engagement with the world. Fr. Blake invites all Catholics to step beyond the polarization and embrace Vatican II as one of our greatest resources for being in the Church in a way that is faithful, engaged, and effective, if we answer its radical call to worship and renewal.
