Item Description...
Overview
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A few bright points in a very generic read  Aug 23, 2007
This book is a basic summation of various talks offered during a conference in 2003. The aim of the conference was to lean neither theologically to the right or the left, in general they seem to have achieved a balance of this, but the lean to the more liberal perspective is quite evident.
I don't know that any of the insights from the conference were that fresh and useful, such things as the fact that despite all challenges priests report the most happiness and fulfillment have been expressed elsewhere already. It was interesting to read some of the paradigm shifts they see as necessary for a priesthood lived in the next few decades, but in general the vision presented here is not as strong as that articulated in other books, for instance Archbishop Dolan's masterful "Priests for the Third Millenium".
 
A Good Contribution  Feb 16, 2007
This short summary of the conference held by the Catholic Common Ground Initiative in March 2003 at San Antonio regarding the situation and future of the Catholic Priesthood in The United States is a very worthy contribution to the discussion. It does not offer fully outlined answers but, it does seem to ask the right questions. A good book for Priests, paticularly Diocesan Priests to read and ponder.
