Starving Christians  Oct 19, 2007
It is a honor to have The Practical Prophet among my most cherished / sacred writings. For anyone who is serious about her/his Christian growth and wants to rethink what is important and what is of no eternal value must read these masterful writing(s) by a Christ-filled follower of Christ, Bishop Ken Untener.
Highly recommended.  May 12, 2007
Catholic Bishop Ken Untener presents The Practical Prophet: Pastoral Writings, an anthology of inspirational and challenging essays especially for Christian ministers. The writings included are divided into the categories "Vision and Creative Imagination", "Liturgy and the Word", "Ministry of Mercy", "Consistent Ethic of Life", "Ministry of Prophet", and "The Wider Church". Each section is introduced by one of the author's trusted advisors. A plain-spoken tone, and a binding call to bring the church back to its roots form a solid common thread between diverse topics in this excellent and thought-provoking resource. The Practical Prophet is as timely and modern-thinking as it is spiritual, addressing serious present-day concerns as well as theological issues. "Day after day we read reports of past abuse by priests. This is the most agonizing experience I have ever had. It's not a thorn in my side. It's a sword in my soul. The pain comes from knowing that some youngsters have been hurt. The pain also comes from knowing that you have suffered as a member of the Catholic Church. It's on my mind every waking hour." Highly recommended.
Practical Prophet Prophetical and Practical  May 7, 2007
Bishop Ken Untener was one-of-a-very-few-kind of priest and bishop. His talks, his style, his writings, everything about him was remarkable. This book is a fine testament to that man.
Practical Prophet  Feb 16, 2007
This is an excellent book written by an outstanding person! Take the time to read it. It is very inspiring, and spoken from the heart to the heart.
A lot to chew on  Feb 6, 2007
In the introduction to "The Practical Prophet" it is pointed out that the book is very much a sampling of the writings and thoughts of the late bishop of Saginaw, Michigan Ken Untener.

If one reads the book as a series of essays about different talks they will find it much more satisfying than someone who is looking for one consistent focused line of thought about the Catholic Church during the past 40 years.

The editors of the book have gone to great lengths to point out that many of the bishop's writings (on topics such as the ordination of women) were written prior to magisterial instructions that sought to put an end to such conversations. I am not certain why the editors chose to add these footnotes. The book carries no imprimatur, so it is not presented as free from doctrinal error at the outset (which is not to say that this reviewer believes it contains any either). It's as though the editors have sought to water down the clarity of thought that the late bishop was known for by apologizing posthumously for his work. It would have been wiser to allow his writings to stand on their own and be discussed openly by those who were strong supporters and strong detractors of Bishop Untener.

I would recommend this book as a primer for the diversity of thought that exists in the Catholic church today. However, it would be very beneficial for the reader to explore texts that responsibly contradict the point of view offered by Bishop Untener in this book on some of the more controversial topics.

Pope Benedict XVI has been teaching vehemently on how Catholicism is a "positive option", not simply a series of prohibitions. This has been treated by many in the media as a bit of a novel approach. If one reads this book, it would appear they would find that bishops have been pointing out the 'positive option' for many years. It would do the late bishop proud to note that he was right about one thing..change starts from the ground up.
