What exactly is the basis for the Catholic Churchs belief in the role of the Pope? What does the Catholic Church mean when it teaches that the Pope is Christs Vicar on earth? And what does this teaching mean for Christians of other faith traditions? Robert Stackpole, STD, addresses thoughtprovoking questions in his book St. Peter Lives in Rome, which has been rereleased in this expanded and revised edition. Dr. Stackpole presents new evidence of support from the early Christian era for the papacy and even includes a timeline entitled Important Dates in the Early Story of the Petrine Primacy. Readers will be fascinated by this study that clears away misunderstandings about the papacy and clarifies its foundations in Scripture and early Church history.
