Product Description

The theological and cultural vigor of these seven French Dominicans—Sertillanges, Chenu, Congar, Lebret, Loew, Liégé, and Couturier—eventually influenced the entire church through the breakthrough of Vatican II. They read the signs of the times and saw what the Holy Spirit was doing in a changing world. The Catholic Church is more alive because of them.


 


‘This is a deeply refreshing book about seven Dominicans who fearlessly brought their faith into dialogue with different aspects of modernity. It captures their joy, freedom, courage, and their profound evangelical hope in the face of fear and hostility. I could not put it down. It captures them perfectly.’


 


Timothy Radcliffe, OP Former Dominican Master General


 


Author of Take the Plunge: Living Baptism and Confirmation


 


‘The French Dominicans whose stories come alive here had a profound impact on the renewal of Catholic theology and helped to usher in the Second Vatican Council. Thanks to O’Meara and Philibert, their prophetic voices can inspire creative forms of witness to the Gospel in the twenty-first century.’


 


Mary Catherine Hilkert, OP Professor of Theology University of Notre Dame, USA


 


‘The French Dominicans of the early twentieth century, in ways great and small, played a role in raising key themes that would be developed by the council.  Each of these seven Dominicans helped nudge Catholicism toward a more vital, dynamic, and dialogical vision of the church.’  


 


Richard R Gaillardetz McCarthy Professor of Systematic Theology Boston College, USA
