KIRKUS REVIEW

In line with the pronouncements of Vatican II, April Oursler Armstrong interprets the position of the Church on a series of crucial issues for the lay Catholic. She sees the Church achieving a new stage of maturity, Vatican II leaving ""the future free to grow."" She takes a historical perspective to present the evolved and evolving stance on scripture (in 1943 Pope Pius XII gave the go-ahead on exegesis), the Church, the role of the Pope, and of the layman, Mary, the liturgy, the sacrament, the meaning of marriage, the ecumenical movement, the nature of dogma. Helpful.
