$15.49
($16.95)
Product Description
This important book on priestly identity embraces the many contemporary varieties of priestly ministry: male and female, paid and unpaid, parish and work-based, catholic, evangelical, charismatic. Examining the "root," the "shape," and the "fruit" of priestly identity, On Being a Priest Today is essential reading for priests, priests in training, and everyone considering the ministry. Part One "roots" a priest's human and church life in the theological convictions derived from the Christian understanding of God as being for and with others. Part Two explores the "shape" of priestly life in relation to worship, word, and prayer each supported by the three key virtues of love, faith, and hope. Part Three examines the "fruit" of priestly life by focusing on three fundamental features of priestly identity: holiness, reconciliation, and blessing. With its applicability to various denominations, this exciting book offers welcome new perspectives on what it means to be a priest today.
