The Life and Work of a Priest (Paperback)John Pritchard (author)
Paperback 160 Pages / Published: 22/06/2007
- In stock online
Having managed during his eventful time as a vicar to become a footnote in ecclesiastical history(!), John Pritchard's current role as a 'jobbing bishop' ensures he is in contact with many parish priests every week. In this lively and hopeful volume, he realistically maps out the life and work of those called to serve God in the pastoral ministry, looking in turn at the only three things he believes need be of concern: the glory of God, the pain of the world, and the renewal of the Church. From those flow the priest's many roles, such as spiritual explorer, multi-lingual interpreter, wounded companion, friendly irritant, creative leader and mature risk-taker.
