About the Author

Thomas P. Sweetser, S.J., is a writer, popular conference presenter, and the founder and director of the Milwaukee-based Parish Evaluation Project.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Father Tom Sweetser has set forth some practical ways in which parishes can live up to their call to become more fully the Body of Christ. These suggestions are born of experience. But we learn such things "in the doing," and it will take a lot of "doing" to see how well they work. The Church is at its best when its rituals and structures draw from the wisdom learned in practice, not in theory.-from the foreword by Bishop Ken Untener

12 of 14 people found the following review helpful By The Rev. Dr. Daniel J. G. G. Block on January 25, 2003
Format: Paperback
Although self-consciously and unapologetically Roman Catholic, Father Sweetser offers a theologically sound vision of covenantal relationships that could help to form any Christian parish. His advice, based on more than 30 years of pastoral experience is not new, but it is practical. This program could reasonably be exercised in most congregations. Father Sweetser dares to address the taboo subjects of those whose Christianity is only marginally expressed and the various ways that the Church drives individuals to such isolation. Any bishop, priest, pastor, deacon, parish administrator or parish council president could benefit by reading this book.
