Garry Wills - Why Priests?: A Failed Tradition

Feb 13 2013 7:00 pm
Feb 13 2013 8:00 pm
In his study of the priesthood, Wills, author of several books on Catholicism—and a former Jesuit seminarian who nearly became a priest himself—points out that priests were not originally a part of Christianity. As he examines the history and role of priests, Wills asks whether the church needs them today.
