The Author: Fr. John F. Kobler, CP. is a private research scholar resident at Immaculate Conception Monastery, Chicago, IL.
In 1979 he resigned from an active career of teaching, preaching and administration to devote himself full-time to research
on the Second Vatican Council. His first book, Vatican II and Phenomenology: Reflections on the Life-World of the Church,
was published in 1985 and established his foundational insights into the Council's pastoral methodology. His second book now
develops fuller horizons on these basic insights. His articles on Vatican II have appeared in Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses,
Gregorianum, Canadian Catholic Review, Notre Dame Magazine, The Tablet, Social Justice Review and elsewhere. He is a member
of the Metaphysical Society of America and the Catholic Philosophical Association.
