View of the Papacy through the eyes of the Catholic Church  Feb 5, 2009
If you are reading this book from a Catholic perspective this book is the perfect book for you. If you are reading this book from an unbiased historical perspective, this is not the book for you. Both the questions and the answers are clearly from the Catholic theological point of view. I was personally hoping for a book that had unbiased factual information that did not slant too in favor of the Catholic church and one that did not slant too far the other way. This was an extremely disappointing book for me.

It should be said that if you are looking for answers about the Papacy from the Catholic fundamentalist point of view, pick up this book, this will be a wonderful read. This book does have a great deal of information about Pope John Paul II, which I found to be endearing at times. Again, this book may or may not be for you, if you are looking for a historical perspective, pick up something else.
Careful, careful  Nov 24, 2008
I am as interested in the facts provided by this fine book on the papacy as in its point of view. The facts, as provided by Chris Bellitto's answers about the papacy, are historical and accurate. The spin, on the other hand, is exactly what one would expect from a historian of integrity who happens to teach at a Catholic college -- careful and unlikely to tread the toes of his sponsors. Take the author's answer as to whether Peter was the first pope. Uncritical and fundie Catholics would give a resounding "Yes!" to the question, citing Jesus's famous granting of the keys to Peter in Matthew 16:19. Writers antithetical to the church or the unitary papacy would give a strong "No!" citing the lack of church offices--especially ordained ones-- in the early church. Bellitto the Catholic teacher gives us a "yes" while his historian self gives us "but not the way we think of it now." While this equivocal answer may please some, I found it a little disingenuous. Why maintain the fiction of Peter's papacy when one can retain Peter's primacy without opposing history and scripture to boot?

If you love good history, but choose not to stray beyond the framework wrought by Catholics to defend their view of the papacy, then "101 Questions" will be a satisfying read.
Just what I was looking for  Aug 27, 2008
My curiosity about the Papacy is limited. The 101 Questions & Answers allowed me zero in on my area of interest without having to wade through all 150 pages. The answers I read were concise and as far as I can judge; objective
