  4. Teaching and Learning the Love of God: Being a Priest Today

    https://www.ignatius.com/Products/JRSW01-P/teaching-and-learning-the-love-of-god.aspx

  6. An Introduction to Vatican II as an Ongoing Theological Event

    Matthew Levering
    The Catholic University of America Press
    2017
    978-0813229300
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/0813229308/

    "Levering's treatment of each Council document makes him an excellent theological guide. The summaries are just right for introductory level readers-and for his overall argument about reading the documents together. This book will be helpful for college-level use and for a wider readership. We are already indebted to Levering for his work on the Council and this adds to that collection." -Gavin D'Costa, University of Bristol
