Probes the theological and historical roots of the clericalist mantality as it has affected the Catholic laity, along with contemporary expressions of clericalism - the over-involvement of some clerics in secular politics, the sometimes exaggerated emphasis given to "lay ministries," and certain aspects of the feminist movemenet in today's Catholicism. This is not another revisionist attack on the priesthood, not one more alienated voice from the pews. Instead the book offers a prescription for authentic ecclesial renewal based on healthier lay-clergy relations in light of the teaching of Vatican II.
