Word on Fire Vatican II Collection

The Word on Fire Vatican II Collection features the four central documents that most fully articulate the vision of the council - Dei Verbum, Lumen Gentium, Sacrosanctum Concilium, and Gaudium et Spes - with illuminating commentary from the postconciliar popes and Bishop Robert Barron interspersed throughout, along with beautifully carved linocut art. The collection also includes the opening address of Pope St. John XXIII, the closing address of Pope St. Paul VI, a foreword from Bishop Barron, an afterword from theologian Matthew Levering, and helpful appendices listing key terms and figures and answering frequently asked questions. The Word on Fire Vatican II Collection is a robust but readable journey into the true history and purpose of the Second Vatican Council, and a compelling call for an enthusiastic return to its texts today.

Unique features of this beautiful new book:
- The four central documents of Vatican II, in an easy-to-read format
- A foreword from Bishop Robert Barron and an afterword from theologian Matthew Levering
- Commentary from Pope St. Paul VI, Pope St. John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis, as well as Bishop Robert Barron
- Original linocut art, carved and hand-pressed on an antique cast iron book press, by Cory Mendenhall
- A helpful appendix answering frequently asked questions about the council, including: What is Vatican II? Was Vatican II merely a "pastoral" council? And are Catholics free to ignore, disparage, or reject Vatican II?
