Leadership in the Church examines traditional leadership roles within the Catholic Church, arguing for their contemporary viability and efficacy. Cardinal Kasper treats such topics as:
  • The Diaconate
  • Priestly Office
  • Episcopal Office
  • The Apostolic Succession
  • Canon Law
  • The Universal Church and the Local Church
  • Ecumenical Perspectives on the Future
With his vast knowledge of Christian tradition, Kasper insightfully probes the historical understanding of Church leadership and finds its teachings applicable to the present day Christian community.
