Priestly training is at a crossroads. In the aftermath of American seminary visitations and breakthrough books such as Howard Bleichner's View from the Altar and Donald Cozzens's The Changing Face of the Priesthood, the training of Catholic priests has reemerged in Catholic circles and society at large as a pressing issue. In Models of Priestly Formation Msgr. Charles Murphy gives us much-needed perspective for this conversation, helping us understand key moments in the history of priestly training and vocation, and pointing us toward developments that may help priests be trained more effectively in light of increasingly complex demands on their time and talents.
