This book may perhaps best be described as an indispensable vade mecum for the priest engaged in the active ministry. It covers in some detail almost every aspect of the problems that a parish priest normally will encounter, from the administrative and financial steps involved in undertaking a new construction to proper dress, from the liturgical movement to the counseling of sexually disturbed adolescents. It would be too much to expect that the priest will find, even in this large volume, a complete solution to every problem of the ministry; but he will invariably find pertinent and intelligent advice from contributors who are experienced and articulate. Pastoral Ministry in a Time of Change is, above all, an immensely practical book. Catholic bookstores and seminary libraries will find it in steady demand.
