The Petrine Ministry

The role of the Petrine or papal office in the Church remains, of course, the most contentious topic today between Catholics and Orthodox. It has been discussed for decades, and several books have been published in the last 15 years--collections of essays from Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox leaders reflecting on the papacy; James Puglisi edited one such previous collection. Now Eerdmans is bringing out another of his edited collections, which I look forward to reviewing in Logos: A Journal of Eastern Christian Studies:

 James F. Puglisi, ed., How Can the Petrine Ministry Be a Service to the Unity of the Universal Church? (Eerdmans, 2010), 392pp.

This volume has twenty different contributors, including such well known figures as Walter Kasper, John Zizioulas, Hervé Legrand, Hermann Pottmeyer, and others.
