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.
