This overview of Vatican II and the 1985 extraordinary session of the synod of Bishops, notes Father Dulles, "concentrates on practical and pastoral matters that have direct impact on the lives of rank-and-file Catholics." He has organized his observations "under the rubric of ten principles endorsed by the Council."
Fr. Avery Dulles, S.J., S.T.D., is a professor of systematic theology at The Catholic University of America. Among his extensive writings (seventeen books and numerous articles) are Models of the Church (Doubleday, 1974) and The Catholicity of the Church (Clarendon, 1985).
