Priestly Identity: A Study in the Theology of Priesthood
In his new book, Fr Thomas McGovern examines fundamental aspects of the priestly vocation from a theological, spiritual, and pastoral standpoint, and offers a convincing restatement of the identity of the priest from the perspective of contemporary theology. As well as drawing on the historical tradition, he focuses particularly on the writings of John Paul II about the priesthood and the rich insights that he has contributed over the past twenty years towards a clearer definition of the priestly vocation.
