Here’s some exciting advance feedback on my new book Struggle, Condemnation, Vindication: John Courtney Murray’s Journey toward Vatican II. It comes from Mark Massa, SJ, who is professor of church history at Boston College and the author of several highly regarded books on the history of the church in the United States. About my book, Massa has said:
“This is an extraordinarily important book — arguably the most important study of the thought and influence of John Courtney Murray in 40 years. Hudock elucidates how Murray’s contribution to North American and world Catholicism transcends the tired political labels of our time, so that both Catholic ‘liberals’ and ‘conservatives’ have benefited from his forceful defense of religious liberty and freedom of conscience. A must-read.”
My thanks to Fr. Massa for his gracious words!
The book will be available in May. More on it (including the chance to pre-order a copy) here.
