The French Dominican theologian Yves Congar is recognized by many as the most important Roman Catholic ecclesiologist of the 20th century. He was the thinker behind some of the major decrees of the Second Vatican council. He was also a leader in the ecumenical movement in Europe throughoutmost of the century. Despite his importance, there are few books about Congar in English. Congar's pneumatology, argues Groppe, can enrich various ongoing theological discussions, including reflection as to whether the church should be hierarchical or a democracy, the development of "persons in communion" as a framework for contemporary theological anthropology and ecclesiology, anddeliberations about the personhood of the Holy Spirit.
Elizabeth Teresa Groppe is at Xavier University.

Editorial Reviews

"Groppe illuminates the contribution of Congar's pneumatology to the ongoing theological enterprise by pointing out that Congar's thought offers significant potential for the ongoing discussion of not only a theology of the Holy Spirit but also ecclesiology, spirituality, liturgical theologyand ecumenical studies." --Journal of the Society for Pentecostal Studies
