The Inner Life of Priests is a landmark exploration of how the categories and practices of psychology are contributing to a new health and vitality in the priesthood. Authors McGlone and Sperry (both nationally recognized experts on the integration of psychology and spirituality in priestly life) investigate issues and answer questions that concern those invested in a healthy ministry of priests: everyone from the people in the pews to those in Church leadership. They include: How has psychology helped to understand both mental and spiritual health of those applying to Catholic seminaries and then serving in priestly ministry? How has it shaped understanding of key issues like affective maturity, cultural competency, and even the discipline of celibacy? How has it helped Church leaders better understanding and positively influence clerical culture in seminaries, dioceses, and religious orders? Catholic laity, priests, seminarians, vocation directors, those considering religious and priestly vocations, and everyone else interested in how men serving in this critical ministerial role are identified, formed, and supported will welcome this authoritative and positive book.
