Description

Who is the Pope, and What is His Role in the Church? Dr. Robert Stackpole, STD, Director of the John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy and Assistant Director of Formation at the St. Therese Institute, explains the role of the Papacy and its foundation in Scripture and Tradition.

Born the son of a Protestant Pastor, Dr. Stackpole became an Anglican as an undergraduate, and pursued a vocation to the Anglican priesthood. Grateful for the faith passed on to him in those years, he nevertheless felt something was missing. Drawn to the Catholic Church, his greatest stumbling block to entering was the doctrine of the Papacy. This volume is the result of his critical, in-depth study of the “Petrine Ministry,” a quest that helped him embrace that office as the Lord’s will for all Christians.



This book, writes Dr. Scott Hahn, Professor of Theology and Scripture at Franciscan University of Steubenville, “is a very valuable and readable study for all Christians.”
