Item description for The Petrine Ministry: Catholics and Orthodox in Dialogue by Walter Kasper & Staff of the Pontifical Council for Prom...

A unique insight into the contemporary thinking of established Catholic and Orthodox scholars on the theme that is at the heart of the ecumenical dialogue: the ministry of the Bishop of Rome.

Publishers Description
This collection of papers has its origin in the encyclical letter "Ut unum sint (no. 95) and the request of Pope John Paul II to study the question of the Petrine ministry with other Christians with a view to "seeking--"together, of course--"the forms in which this ministry may accomplish a service of love recognized by all concerned." After the promulgation of the encyclical in 1995, the theme of the Petrine ministry in its implications for dialogue with the other churches and ecclesial communities resonated throughout the ecumenical community and in studies, conferences and courses at institutes and research centers, focusing on the theological and historical aspects of the issue. The symposium presented here, organized by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, is aimed at furthering study of the role of the Bishop of Rome in the perspective of the search for Christian unity. Catholic experts and delegates representing a range of Orthodox churches took part in the closed-door symposium at which eight speakers presented papers, dealing with each theme from the Catholic and Orthodox points of view.

Reviews - What do customers think about Petrine Ministry: Catholics And Orthodox In Dialogue?

Petrine Ministry: Catholics And Orthodox In Dialogue  Jan 9, 2007
I gained a great deal of insight into the workings of both the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Churches in the area of unification. The setting was a conference held at the Vatican attended by scholars from both the east and the west. Although not empowered to formulate church policy, the group was committed to offering scholarly assistance to those who are in the position to make decisions. Both sides of different issues dealing with the acncient role of St. Peter were presented in a fair and objective fashion. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in Christian unification.
