$45.99

Paperback
This work traces the movement of the Church in the United States during the first forty years of the implementation of Vatican II. These studies are important for what they tell us of priests today who were already ministering the theology of the Council, at the time of the Council, and these studies consider those priests ordained more recently and their perspectives on Vatican II.

- Publisher Dean R. Hoge is professor of sociology at the Catholic University of America.

- Publisher Evolving Visions of the Priesthood traces the movement of the Church in the United States during the first forty years of the implementation of Vatican II. This research gives the U.S. Church a good picture of itself and its struggles during the post-conciliar period. This study is important for what it tells us about the priests who have been ministering the theology of the Council to parishes and faith communities. By following what has been happening we get a glimpse of what the future holds. Given recent Church scandals, the study also offers indications of why particular problems arose and their relationship to a given time frame. Chapters are "The American Priesthood After the 1960s," "Characteristics of Priests in 2001," "The Shifting Emphasis in Ecclesiology," "The New Priests," "Issues and Needs Felt by Priests," "The Question of Homosexual Subcultures," "Understanding the Changes," and "Recommendations Made by the Priests." Includes an epilogue, "Effects of the 2002 Sexual Misconduct Crisis."
