Ecclesiology: A Study in Church History

In an era of rapid social change and of notable attitudinal shifts, the contemporary Catholic Church has been challenged to reflect upon, and to articulate its self-understanding in ways that are faithful to its tradition and, at the same time, comprehensible to people today, open to the insights of secular disciplines, and alert to needs for justice and compassion.
