The very word "priest" is a word of controversy and contention in the Church. In this collection of essays, sermons, and meditations, an ordained priest in the Anglican tradition defends the use of the term and argues that the renewal of the priesthood of the people requires an appropriate appreciation of the power and dignity of holy orders. This book, which comes out of thirty years of pastoral ministry, is an encouragement to the ordained to persevere in love and thus fulfill the calling to keep alive at the heart of the church the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ, the great high priest.
