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 insider's account was written by Rev. Ralph M. Wiltgen, a priest and professional journalist who was an eyewitness with unparalleled access to the principal figures and events of the Council. 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 Council's 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.

Mind opening

I had always heard stories of how detrimental the second vatican council had been to the Church. But never in my life would have I thought that this event was filled with errors and willfully guided towards cataclysm. This book seems to be written in a very unbiased manner, merely stating facts. The Inside Story of Vatican II truly does a wonderful job at describing the events of the council in a VERY detailed way. Furthermore, it is very easy to read for those of us who are not that familiarized with ecclesiastical affairs.
