Ecclesiology and Ecumenism in Yves Congar

Yves Congar is indisputably one of the most influential theologians of the twentieth century. His scholarship did so much not only to renew the Catholic Church, but also to contribute to the ressourcement movement and the ecumenical movement. His scholarship has been especially important to, and useful for, the ongoing search for East-West unity.

A recent book discusses his thought in some important detail:

Douglas Koskela, Ecclesiality and Ecumenism: Yves Congar and the Road to Unity (Marquette Studies in Theology) (Marquette U Press, 2008), 174pp.

In her review in the forthcoming issue of Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies, Catherine Clifford discusses this book, noting its creative contribution to Congar scholarship but noting also that this is a rather short book and sacrifices some necessary depth in places.

You may read the full review, and much else besides, by subscribing to the journal here.
