Tested in Every Way : The Catholic Priesthood in Today's Church Paperback / softback
In recent years, the Catholic priesthood in the United States has suffered numerous trials, from ever-diminishing numbers to the humiliations of the clerical sexual-abuse crisis. And, yet, by virtually every statistical measure, Catholic priests remain among the happiest of men.
In Tested in Every Way , Christopher Ruddy examines this paradox, drawing on the insights of the "Priest in the Church" conference convened by the Catholic Common Ground Initiative.
Ruddy moves beyond the cultural and theological impasses that paralyze the church and its mission to give us a vision of the priesthood that is both honest and hopeful.
