Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book shows nine examples of lay persons filling essential positions in today's church. It also gives spiritual guidance to the vast numbers of church members who, although not active in specific positions, can more fully participate in our Catholic faith. This is a well reasoned and well written explanation on how the Catholic laity can make our faith stronger while we make our Church stronger.

The two authors have substance in the church. Novak is one of the finest theologians of his time and Bill Simon comes from a family with a long and distinguished record of involvement in the church. Bill and Michael do a great job of covering the opportunities that the laity have to serve in the church.
