Who Do We Think We Are? : How Catholic Priests Understand Themselves Today Hardback
Part of the Ecclesiological Investigations series
This empirical study explores how the sampled priests understand their priesthood.
Chris A. Fallon reviews Liverpool's history of expansion and decline, which has left fewer and older priests serving fewer active Catholics and an undiminished number who still require baptisms, first communions, marriages and funerals.
It contrasts the models of priesthood found in Liverpool with American studies of the cultic and servant leader models of priesthood, taking into account the theological viewpoints and personality profiles of the individuals who took part.
