The latest in a series of NFPC-commissioned books that looks at attitudes, challenges and changes in the priesthood.  This longitudinal study was first begun in 1970 by the National Opinion Research Center. This new volume, based on a survey conducted by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University in 2009 surveyed 900 priests who shared their lives and ministry. The book looks at the demographic changes as well as challenges and satisfactions in priestly life. The fallout from the sexual abuse scandal is also detailed. The research concludes with a look to the future and who is encouraging the next generation of priests. (Liturgical Press, 2012)
