Why Priests? : In this riveting examination of the theological and historical foundations for the priesthood in Christianity, Garry Wills asks some charged and stirring questions: Why did the priesthood develop in a religion that began without it and, indeed, was initially opposed to it? Wills is not opposed to the priesthood; in fact, as a young man he studied at a Jesuit seminary. Nor does he advocate its elimination. But the stakes are high, for without the priesthood there would be no belief in an apostolic succession, the real presence in the Eucharist, the sacrificial interpretation of the Mass, and the ransom theory of redemption. Why Priests?, a New York Times bestseller, argues brilliantly and persuasively for a radical reenvisioning of the role of the church as the Body of Christ and for a new and better understanding of the central tenets of Christian belief.
