About this title


The concept and institution of priesthood in the Catholic Church has been the subject of serious challenge not only since the time of the Protestant Reformation but also, more recently, from within the Catholic Church, as the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and theologians afterward have reconsidered the place and function of priests in relation to both bishops and laity. In dialogue with those challenges, and by means of research into Scripture and the theological tradition-patristic, medieval, and modern-the author of this book considers classic images of priests and priestly ministry as a way of recovering an understanding of the priesthood that is at once both biblically and theological sound.


"This book deserves a wide readership.  No matter who you are, no matter if you are Catholic or Protestant, and no matter what your vocation may be, read this book."  Mitch Finley of the Catholic News Service in The Tablet (Diocese of Brooklyn, Dec. 28, 2013, p. 22.

"Erudite, comprehensive, compelling . . . as informed and informative as it is thought provoking." -- James A. Cox in The Midwest Book Review, November 2013

"By offering a broad-ranging, Biblically influenced examination of issues affecting priestly identity today, Porter provides a real service that ought to stimulate wide and overdue dialogue."-- J. Grondelski in the Roman theological journal Angelicum, vol. 90, 2013, p. 289.

"This is a scholarly and comprehensive volume, an excellent read for priests, men thinking about priesthood and those who support priests."-- website of The National Federation of Priests' Councils:  Publications & Resources
