Product Description

The past three decades have witnessed a decline in the number of Roman Catholic priests in Europe and North America, the result of resignations from the priesthood and of fewer people entering seminaries. A major cause contributing to this situation has been the ambiguity surrounding the role and identity of the priest in light of new theological paradigms. This book attemps to restore clarity to that matter by drawing primarily, although not exclusively, on the teachings of the Second Vatican Council, postconciliar theology and the pronouncements of Pope John Paul II. 81 pages.

Publisher's Description

This is a defense of the traditional form of the priesthood--male celibates. The book looks at the current literature, taking a conservative view and holding the belief that Vatican II had a deleterious influence on the priesthood. Avery Dulles, a man of towering reputation, writes with impeccable scholarship.
