Evolving Visions of the Priesthood
Evolving Visions of the Priesthood depicts far reaching changes in the American priesthood as reflected in four surveys of priests done in 1970, 1985 1993 and 2001. During this time the numbers of priest declined, the average age rose, but morale has risen. Most important, the conception of the priesthood help by priest has shifted from a servant leadership model to a cultic model, so that older and younger priests often disagree on ecclesiology.
A confessor’s Handbook
For many years, A confessor's Handbook has been the indispensable guide for priest and seminarians on the sacrament of Reconciliation. There are many books for priests on preaching, leadership, liturgy, spiritual direction, and counseling, but A confessor's Handbook focuses specifically on the priest's ministry as confessor.
Religious Life and Priesthood
Religious life and priesthood and priesthood reclaims the vision of Vatican II for contemporary priests, religious, and ecclesial ministers. The book examines the historical context, the key players, and the implementation of Vatican II documents on the priesthood, the training of priests, and the religious life.
The Joy of Priesthood
The Joy of Priesthood shifts the focus of considering today's priesthood from problems to possibilities. This approach is not only refreshing but necessary, and we all owe him a debt of gratitude.
