From the publisher

This series on the seven Sacraments provides readers with a deeper appreciation of God's gifts and call in the Sacraments through a renewed encounter with God's Word.

In this volume, a leading Catholic scholar offers a biblical theology of the priesthood rooted in the Old and New Testaments. Half a millennium after the Protestant Reformation and in the midst of an ongoing clerical crisis in the Catholic Church, this book presents a comprehensive biblical vision and defense of the sacramental priesthood and an informed theological response to the problem of priestly sin. It gives expression to the ministerial priesthood's biblically grounded, sacramental share in the sacrificial ministry of Jesus Christ.

Series editors are Timothy C. Gray and John Sehorn. Gray is president of the Augustine Institute, which has one million subscribers to its online content channel, Gray and Sehorn teach at the Augustine Institute Graduate School of Theology, which prepares students for Christian mission through on-campus and distance-education programs.

From the rear cover

Anthony Giambrone, OP, offers a biblical theology of the priesthood rooted in the Old and New Testaments.

"This beautifully written volume manages to pack a very sophisticated set of interpretive proposals into a book that a general theological reader can understand and enjoy. Most modern books on the priesthood either deny the linkage between the Bible and Catholic practice or smuggle in a variety of apologetic readings in an attempt to justify a predetermined position. With characteristic honesty and brilliance, Giambrone provides a much-needed alternative: an exegetically sound grounding of the office of the priesthood in the biblical tradition."
--Gary A. Anderson, University of Notre Dame

"This is the kind of exegesis I have been waiting for since I became a student of the sacred page. Fr. Giambrone masterfully fulfills the mandate of Dei Verbum 12, effortlessly integrating his outstanding historical scholarship into a balanced, fully canonical Christian hermeneutic. The fruit is a profoundly biblical theology of the priesthood that will illuminate exegetes, fundamental theologians, and dogmaticians alike."
--Nina Heereman, St. Patrick's Seminary & University

"A splendid work of unimpeachable scholarship from an international biblical scholar. Every seminarian should be given this book to prosper his grace to be a priest. Every priest should read this book to fortify his vocation. Every bishop should buy this book. Additionally, Fr. Giambrone's easy-to-read presentation of biblical themes will help Christ's lay faithful to understand the divinely ordained place that the Catholic priest occupies in the Church."
--Romanus Cessario, OP, Ave Maria University

Praise for the Catholic Biblical Theology of the Sacraments Series

"This series gives to students of the Bible a deeply enriched view of the mesh of relationships within and between biblical texts that are brought to light by the liturgy of the sacraments."
--Jennifer Grillo, University of Notre Dame

"This series points the way to the theological and exegetical future."
--Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary
