My rating: 3 of 5 stars

There can be little doubt that the documents of the Second Vatican Council represent a very significant contribution to the ongoing theological life of the Catholic Church. To look at them from a particularly liturgical lens, as this book does, provides a completely different approach to these documents which have been so much a part of the last fifty years of Catholic thought.

Each of the authors provides a contribution and understanding of each of the documents promulgated by the Council, encouraging readers to see these documents with new eyes and as part of a corpus of work that is woven together with common themes.

For any student of the Second Vatican Council, this book is a highly recommended read. For anyone interested in the liturgy of the Church, this book is an absolute necessity.
