Abstract:

This book is a concise attempt to supply more accurate biblical information that should go into the modern discussion of the "identity crisis" of the clergy. It gives reassurance about the great expectations and estimation that Catholic have had of the priesthood, while it faces honestly the deep conflicts that spring from the complex history of the priesthood. It is a book that will provoke thought -- a book which, the author states, is sure to please neither extreme of the Catholic theological spectrum. However, the thoughtful, concerned reader will find this book invaluable for its insights and indispensable for an accurate picture of the true role of priests and bishops in the Church.
