KIRKUS REVIEW

This worthwhile little book may be described as a primer of modern theology for the layman. It gives, in capsule form and in an engaging style, a summary of the main thrust of Catholic thought since Vatican II, particularly in the revolutionary areas such as the role of the laity, the meaning of faith, the structure of the (institutional) Church, ecumenism, eschatology, and so forth. Father Fannon has resisted the temptation to treat of Christology, where he recognizes that, some authorities to the contrary, there has been almost no development worthy of the name, and to discuss Mariology which, as he says, has already presented us ""with the unusual phenomenon of theological elephantiasis."" All in all, it is a well balanced, realistic, and painlessly informative work.
