Ian Linden offers a comprehensive analysis of how much the Catholic Church has lived up to the Councils promise, come to terms with pluralism, modernity, and different forms of spirituality and become a genuinely world Church, the only competitor to global Islam in the twenty-first century.

He focuses on forces that had wider historical importance than the internal evolution of the Roman Catholic Church as a religious organization: war and peace, nationalism and democratization in Africa, liberation theology, military dictatorships, guerrilla movements in Latin America, Africa and Philippines, interaction with communist governments, inculturation and relations with resurgent Islam.
