The American Catholic community prior to Vatican II (1962-1965) can be numbered among the most vital expressions of Catholicism in the history of the church. Despite the vast cultural divide that separates us from that era, the contributors to this book-a who's who of leading theologians and spiritual writers-assess whether reclaimed spiritual wisdom from those times can enrich the faith lives of Catholics today.
