Presented with SEATTLE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH as part of the SEATTLE SPIRITUAL SYNTHESIS series. Scholar and journalist Garry Wills’ often incendiary articles for The New York Review of Books and other publications were highlights of the political season and we’re pleased to welcome him back to Seattle Spiritual Synthesis tonight to speak about what may be his most controversial book. In his new book, Why Priests? A Failed Tradition (Viking), he examines the rise of priesthood in early Christianity, calling this a late development in a religion that initially opposed it, and asks whether Christianity would be stronger without priests.
