Item description for On Being a Priest Today by Christopher J. Cocksworth & Rosalind Brown...

Overview
This important book on priestly identity embraces the many contemporary and denominational 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.
