Only two years after the Second Vatican Council concluded in 1965, Catholics around the world welcomed the publication of "The Rhine Flows Into the Tiber", a history of the Council published worldwide in four languages. Widely hailed for its balanced, factual reporting, this eye-opening insiders account was written by Fr. Ralph M. Wiltgen, a priest and professional journalist who was an eyewitness with unparalleled access to the principal figures and events of the Council.
This new Catholic book, "The Inside Story of Vatican II" is a revised, updated edition of that ground-breaking contemporary account, which details in particular the crucial influence on the Councils proceedings exerted by its German-speaking bishops. As Catholics continue to debate the meaning and impact of Vatican II, they will find this book an indispensable guide for understanding what actually took place there behind the scenes.
