PP [Old Saybrook, CT] YR 2013 SN 9781452660196 1452660190 AB Garry Wills spent five years at a Jesuit seminary and nearly became a priest himself. After a lifetime of study and reflection, he now poses some challenging questions: Why do we need priests at all? Why did the priesthood arise in a religion that began without it and opposed it? Would Christianity be stronger without priesthood? Wills does not expect the priesthood to fade entirely away. He just reminds listeners that Christianity did without it in the time of Peter and Paul with success.
