Um den Gemeinden eine Zukunft zu geben, ist eine tiefgreifende Veränderung der Rolle von Priestern und engagierten Christen nötig. Ermutigungen dazu finden sie in der Praxis Jesu und im frühen Christentum. Bestärkt werden sie auch durch das Zweite Vatikanische Konzil; es hat das "gemeinsame Priestertum" betont und alle Gläubigen zur Mitarbeit ermutigt. Künftig wird die Kirche nur durch engagierte Frauen und Männer in den Gemeinden lebendig sein. Wie das gelingen kann, zeigt der Autor praxisnah und in konkreten Schritten.
