The Second Vatican Council which ended in 1965, promised so much. A new vision of a reformed Church aware of its social, theological and ecumenical responsibilities. A truly conciliar Church with collegial structures. But this vision seems to have evaporated and so many of the promised reforms have been truncated or have never happened at all. The Vatican remains intensely bureaucratic. Theologians are silenced and the effect of clerical scandal seems to have led Church leaders to dig in and see the deposit of faith as something static. Once again the Church believes it has a monopoly on the truth and millions of people feel marginalized and excluded.;The Tablet has fought for the spirit and values of Vatican 2. It has criticised the Church (Humanae Vitae), has condemned corruption but has also supported the Church where it has been right to do so. To mark the retirement of John Wilkins as editor, a number of the most eloquent and distinguished contributors have been assembled to write essays about the Church of Vatican 2 but above all to prophesy where this vision may still lead the Church and the people of God. Many of the contributors have been and will remain the key figures in the fight to maintain a Church renewed and reinvigorated by the vision of the Second Vatican Council. Contributors include* Eamon Duffy, Joan Chittister, John Cornwell, Jonathan Sacks, Julian Filochowski, Lavinia Byrne, Nicholas Lash, Rembert Weakland OSB, Rowan Williams, Timothy Radcliffe OP and Hans Kung.

When the world's Catholic bishops gathered in Rome forty years ago, they triggered a revolution: a new vision of the Church for the modern world. No longer a lighted castle in a dark world, the Church was now seen as a pilgrim, sharing the joys and anxieties of all peoples -- a reinvigorated and renewed Church that was semper reformanda. But today there is a sense of disappointment among many Catholics that the reforms of the Second Vatican Council (1962-66) have been truncated, ignored, or even undermined in the contemporary Church, which continues to suffer from clericalism, centralism, male domination, and institutional defensiveness. There is a sense of a journey unfinished. What went wrong? How can the Church better be faithful to the promises it made at the Council? To mark the retirement of John Wilkins, the long-serving editor of the London Catholic weekly, The Tablet, 19 of the most distinguished Catholic writers of the age were asked to suggest answers to those questions. The result is a fascinating series of essays on a huge range of topics by a truly international cast of theologians, commentators and journalists, including Hans Kung, Joan Chittister, Eamon Duffy, Timothy Radcliffe, Nicholas Lash, Michael Novak, John Cornwell, Rembert Weakland and Clifford Longley. Unfinished Journey also includes a tribute to John Wilkins by the late-lamented Guardian columnist, Hugo Young. Book jacket.
