The Naked Parish Priest A Survey Among Roman Catholic Parish Clergy in England and Wales

by Stephen H. Louden, Revd Canon Leslie J. Francis

The Naked Parish Priest A Survey Among Roman Catholic Parish Clergy in England and Wales Synopsis

Based on a survey sent out to Catholic clergy in the UK, this study is a major contribution from empirical theology towards interpreting the health and potential of the priesthood today. The issues raised by this new study concern the nature and health of the priesthood, a topic of most urgent concern at a time of clerical scandal and abuse. The conclusions of this book are extremely revealing but fundamentally positive for anyone concerned with the future of the Christian Church at the start of a new millennium.
