Product Description

For many people, priests are the most visible face of the Catholic Church. Yet in recent years, many inside and outside the Church have viewed the priesthood as a troubled institution, best by low morale, dwindling numbers, and a doubtful future. In Priests for the 21st Century, Donald J. Dietrich introduces the work of leading Catholic theologians, writers, scholars to dispel pervasive myths, shed light on the history and nature of the priestly calling, frankly address current challenges, and point to future opportunities for the priesthood. Major topics include: Is there a shortage?, "the people of God" and lay ministry, pastoral ministry, ministers of the sacraments, revewing commitments, preaching and grace, the moral rights of priests, and others.
