The Council in Question: A Dialogue with Catholic Traditionalism, by Moyra Doorly and Aidan Nichols, OP; Introduction by Cardinal George Pell
Presents an exchange of letters between a Catholic journalist and a leading Dominican theologian which addresses the issues central to the long-standing dispute between the Society of Saint Pius X and the Church of the Second Vatican Council. Going beyond the more familiar liturgical questions raised by the Conciliar reforms, The Council In Question covers subjects such as Religious Liberty, Ecumenism, continuity in Tradition, and the Social Reign of Christ the King, topics crucial not only to an understanding of the positions taken by the SSPX and by Rome in this decades-old dispute, but also to any assessment of the direction the current doctrinal discussions might take.
