The Spiritual Leadership of a Parish Priest: On Being Good and Good at It



Product Description

spiritualleaderIs must reading for all priests, priests-to-be, and especially pastors and parochial vicars. In the chapter on Spiritual Leadership (the third listed), Father Knott writes, “If you thought this book was about how to run a parish, about parish management techniques, you were wrong. Spiritual leadership is not the same as parish management, the focus of most books on the practice of ministry in recent years.” He goes on to note, “Spiritual leadership operates on the emotional and spiritual resources of the organization, on its values, commitments and aspirations.” (2007, Sophronismos Press).
