X 36 Is Papal Authority a Gift to Us? A Critique of 'The Gift of Authority' (2003)

The most recent publication of the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) examined the question of authority in the church. But Anglican responses to it were very sharply divided. Could Anglicans ever imagine accepting some form of Papal Primacy in a future church?

This study sets the discussions in the context of the historical changes in Roman thought and doctrine and Anglican responses to it, and asks some very penetrating questions of the report and responses to it. It is at once comprehensive, authoritative and accessible, and will be essential reading for anyone concerned with this ecumenical debate.
