As a pastoral provision priest who participated in the study, I can well attest to accuracy of content and interpretation.
It's interesting to find that being Catholic all my life, this information has never been shared in our parishes. Seems like it's a secret but there is no reason for it. This married, and practicing priest, did a wonderful job explaining how this came about, what the requirements are, etc. I was surprised to find that not only are Episcopalians allowed to make the switch, but several other married, family men from other faiths have also converted to the Catholic religion and are now priests in communion with the Catholic church. I think it's a lovely thing and we need more of them. Married priests with families, can relate much more to those that are having marital/family problems. There is a need for both kinds of priests. This book was wonderful to read, except for the all the graphs and surveys which I just skipped over. I loaned the book to a friend who also found it very interesting.
