DESCRIPTION:

The abolition of celibacy and the introduction of women's priesthood are the subject of intense debate in the Catholic Church. 

However, one crucial but fundamental question is rarely asked: Does the Church need priests at all?


Martin Ebner looks for answers to this question in the New Testament. 

He comes to the conclusion that there is no evidence of a priesthood as we know it. 

Instead, an understanding of the community unhampered by hierarchies and power structures shows, which could point the way to a real new start for the church along the spirit of Jesus.
