Many Are CalledJ.Nicholas Latham, via The Good Book Stall
'The faithful sanctify the world through the common priesthood - but the Church's priests sanctify the faithful through the sacraments.' (p. 142). After a 'Foreword' and two introductory chapters, Scott Hahn reflects on 'The Priest' as Father, Mediator, Provider, Teacher, Warrior, Judge, Bridegroom, Celibate Father, Brother, and, finally, 'The Priesthood of the New Covenant'. He searches the Bible and history to show the importance, and necessity, of the Priesthood for and in the (Catholic) Church, and as Christ's mediator in the World.
The book is suitable for a private retreat, for aspirants to the Priesthood and for lay people wishing to know, and understand, more about their Priests and their own 'priesthood'.
The sub-title is unfortunate, as it implies that 'the Glory of the Priesthood' has been diluted or even lost. Maybe Hahn's target are American Priests, and, from the first page, he writes from such a perspective, possibly irritating to the British reader. There are a few reference notes, but no index, which may be deliberate rather than an oversight, as one needs to read / meditate upon the book's contents chapter by chapter.
As a reminder of 'who I am', this is a useful contribution to the subject.
