Abstract

October 2012 will signal fifty years since the Second Vatican Council met and produced sixteen documents to inspire the reformation and updating of the Catholic Church (1962–65). One sea change concerned Roman Catholic relations with Judaism, Islam, and other living faiths. This book breaks new ground by examining in detail five documents from the Council that (a) embodied a changed mind set towards other religions, and (b) mandated changes that quickly led to international and national interfaith dialogues between Catholics and followers of non-Christian religions. This study also includes two chapters on the teaching and insights which prepared the way for the re-thinking expressed by Vatican II, and two chapters on the follow-up to the Council’s teaching found in the work of Pope John Paul II and Jacques Dupuis. But the heart of the book are the five chapters which illustrate how Vatican II made a startling advance in official Catholic teaching about followers of other religions. Carefully researched, the book is written in the clear, accessible style that readers of previous works by O’Collins will recognize.
