ANGLICANS AND CATHOLICS IN DIALOGUE ON THE PAPACY: A Gift for All Christians
Russel T. Murray, OFM
Section I: "Papal Primacy at the Councils and Beyond" examines the teachings of Vatican Councils I and II in the light of contemporary scholarship.
Section II: "Papal Primacy Through the Eyes of ARCIC," examines ARCIC's vision in the light of how it developed through ARCIC's agreed statements. III: "Anglicans and Catholics in Dialogue on the Papacy" responds to ARCIC's questions in the light of the areas for further development.
The book concludes by arguing that the only way for the Catholic Church to reform and renew the papacy as an instrument for Christian unity is through ecumenical dialogue

But through each of them, Aquilina offers a memorable and rewarding look at the history of the Church.

THE FUTURE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WITH POPE FRANCIS
Pope Francis offers a challenge to his church. Can he bring about significant change? Should he?
Garry Wills argues that, in fact, the history of the church throughout is a history of change. In this study, Wills describes the deep and serious changes that have taken place in the church or are in the process of occurring.
These include the change from Latin, the growth and withering of the ecclesiastical monarchy, the abandonment of biblical literalism, the assertion and no assertion of infallibility, and the erosion of church patriarchy. In such developments we see the living church adapting itself to the new historical circumstances.
As Wills contends, it is only by examining the history of the church that we can understand Pope Francis’s and the church’s challenges
