The Fatherly Life...

Common to all twelve chapters of Scott Hahn's Many Are Called is a strong comparison between spiritual fatherhood of the priest and biological fatherhood. Rooted in well-known (though maybe not well-understood) traditional understandings of the ministerial priesthood, the book is, as are all of Hahn's books, infused with scriptural warrants.

Likewise, this book is also an easier read and the 150 page work would be accessible to high school or college students who wish to understand better the life, purpose, and ministry of priests.
