Jesus Our Priest: A Christian Approach to the Priesthood of Christ

AUTHORS: Gerald O'Collins, SJ and Michael Keenan Jones

This work examines what it means to call Christ our priest.

Beginning with a study of the biblical material, the book then moves to the witness to Christ's priesthood coming from the fathers of the Church, Thomas Aquinas, Luther and Calvin, the Council of Trent, the seventeenth-century 'French School', John Henry Newman, Tom Torrance and the Second Vatican Council. The two concluding chapters describe and define in twelve theses the key characteristics of Christ's priesthood and what sharing in that priesthood, through baptism and ordination, involves.
