Well, here’s a surprise. One of the most scholarly books on the issue of the Roman Primacy and Ecumenism has appeared on Google Books–or at least some of it. Adriano Garuti’s “The Primacy of the Bishop of Rome and the Ecumenical Dialogue” is a must read for anyone trying to get their minds around the various ecclesiological responses to the Roman claims of primacy today. Let these pages whet your appetite, and then go and buy the book. You will not regret the investment.
