Mr. McCarthy was born in Grand Haven, Michigan in 1925. After serving in the Marine Corps (1943-46), he was educated at the University of Detroit and Georgetown University, and received a B.S. in Foreign Service in 1950. He retired from the Federal Government after serving with the CIA and the Agency for International Development (South America and Southeast Asia). He believes that we cannot understand the changes in the Catholic Church until we penetrate behind Vatican II to the theories and philosophies that motivated the changes. This book on Rahner is, he believes, one important piece of the puzzle.Review:
