In an irenic and scholarly manner, La Due examines the development of the papacy from the first century up to today. He places the Popes in their historical context and reveals how quite often the development of the papacy was more the result of political and economic factors than any theological or ecclesiastical concerns.
An excellent piece of historical research.
For an excellent study of the papacy, read Patrick Madrid's wonderful new book on the subject.
