The Underground Church
Non-violent Resistance to the Vatican Empire
In response to the conservative backlash against Vatican II liberal american catholics have rallied to defend its content.
Since the 1970s, liberal American Catholics have sustained a Reform Movement to counteract the conservative drift of the Vatican and preserve and expand on the reforms of Vatican II. This book draws on a range of theory to analyze this movement, which is intent on creating a model of church that exemplifies Vatican II's open attitude toward the modern world.
