Title: FOUNDATIONS FOR THE RENEWAL OF THE DIACONATE
It took a period of five years for the works in this volume to be assembled, translated, and arranged to give the reader a deeper appreciation of the development of a theology of the diaconate as a lifetime commitment to the service of the Church. These are but several essays that were published during the Second Vatican Council and circulated among the council fathers in a single volume,Diaconia in Christo. Included are three works of the late Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner, published in those years that followed the closing of the council. This book provides an increased awareness of and appreciation for the persons such as Karl Rahner whose proposal resulted in the vote of the council fathers in 1963, when 1,588 of the fathers voted to include the diaconate and its restoration in the Constitution of the Church. 210 pages.
