    One thought on “The Office Of Peter And The Structure Of The Church”

    1. An excellent overview and argument for ecclesial authority, based in the Incarnation and the context of "constellation" of Peter, Paul, John, and James, along with Mary. Balthasar was sometimes taken up, especially towards the beginning, with anti-anti-Roman polemics, especially from Catholics, but once he got going this was an insightful view of Catholic ecclesiology.

    2. This is an excellent book for Protestants seeking to understand the Catholic Church. Balthasar discusses not only the papacy but also "infallibility" and Mary as a member of the "constellation" around Jesus.
