Product description

In a robust and engaging manner, David Bohr offers us a thorough review and timely reanalysis of the Catholic diocesan priesthood. Biblical, historical, and sacramental voices dialogue with the relevant documents of the Second Vatican Council, other papal pronouncements, and the perspectives of some of the major commentators on the state of the Catholic priesthood today. Clergy and laity alike will find in BohrG??s models of priestly ministry and the topics of consecration, mission, and celibacy a flash point reigniting the discussion of the past, present, and future of the Catholic diocesan priesthood. Monsignor David Bohr is currently pastor of St. Peter's Cathedral, Scranton, PA. He formerly served as diocesan director of continuing education of priests (1977G??89); rector of St. Pius X Seminary, Dalton, PA (1990G??2004); and academic dean of the North American College, Rome (2004G??07). He also taught theology part time at the University of Scranton and the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome. Ordained a priest for the Diocese of Scranton in 1971, he received an STL in dogmatic theology from the Gregorian University and a doctorate in moral theology, summa cumlaude, in 1977 from the Academia Alfonsiana, Rome, Italy. Previous publications include Evangelization in America and Catholic Moral Tradition.

Review quote

Monsignor David Bohr has written a scholarly and enjoyable work concerning the diocesan priesthood. Relying on his experience as a seminary rector and diocesan director of pastoral formation in his home diocese of Scranton and his formidable experience as Academic Dean at the North American College in Rome, Monsignor Bohr writes with academic style and grace. He has produced a book that is packed with pertinent, factual, and relevant material for priests, those contemplating priesthood, and for all those interested in the history, development, and current situation concerning the diocesan priesthood. A great read.Most Reverend William Patrick Callahan, OFM Conv, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee
