Book Review of an Excellent New Book on Priestly Celibacy and/or Continency

LifeSiteNews, Maike Hickson: In light of the continuous and insisting pressure on the Catholic Church (also in relation to the upcoming 2019 Pan-Amazon Synod) to let go of priestly celibacy and to allow the ordination of morally proven married men – “viri probati” – the recent book by Father Gary Selin, Priestly Celibacy: Theological Foundations, gives a good overview of the history and theology of priestly celibacy. As he shows, this practice can be traced back to Apostolic times. Full review is here.
