First edition in English of this book on ecclesiology, published at the height of Rahner's influence. "Karl Rahner was probaby the most influential figure in Catholic theology in the years immediately following the Council...he loomed even larger in the 1970's and early 80's in Catholic circles, especially in seminary formation, as Catholic institutions of higher learning tried to work out implications of the Council during a turbulent cultural period." (Robert Royal, A Deeper Vision). Composed of three sections: Where do we stand? What are we to do? How can a Church of the future be conceived? Translation and Introduction by Edward Quinn. With Rahner's own Preface.
