a novel insight into the primacy of Peter.

the author puts the words of Christ regarding the papacy into their full biblical perspective and geographical context...a novel insight into the primacy of Peter.
  • In the area of the ancient city of Caesarea Philipi is a huge stone that dominates and can be seen from all over the area. At the foot of this rock are the remains of an ancient site dedicated to the pagan fertility god, Pan. On the top of the rock are the remains of a temple to the Roman god, Jupiter. From a crevice in the rock springs one of the source tributaries of the Jordan river that flows through and nourishes the barren landscape. It was with this backdrop that Jesus affirmed Simon as the Rock on which He would build His church. Many scholars have failed to grasp the significance of this location to the affirmation of Peter's primacy among the apostles. But what better juxtaposition of the stability to be found in the life-giving church against the gates of hell?

    Fr. Jaki brings his thorough scrutiny as a scientist and theologian to bear on the history of the use of the name, Rock, for God alone in ancient Jewish tradition. He affirms that a mere man being called Rock should lead us to humility and provide a basis for greater unity among different Christian traditions rather than prove to be a point of contention between us.

    In the final chapter, Fr. Jaki takes to task liberal Protestantism as it searches for the historical Jesus while denying His assertion to Peter. Taken to their logical conclusions, Fr. Jaki observes, "any investigator of Jesus' life, who does not take for genuine Jesus' reply to Peter's confession, will not endorse a faith in Jesus as defined at Niceaea." And so, in the end, the infallible Rock of the Catholic Church stands against the liberalizing influences of changing times and remains a bulwark of the one true deposit of faith. Fr. Jaki's insights from scripture, philosophy, and common sense have given us a great work for meditation as well as apologetics.

  • Many years ago I read The Bad Popes by E. R. Chamberlin, and before that I had read in Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man James Joyce's caricature of a conversation on papal infallibility between two pious Catholics. Everyone who has read either or both of those should read this book. I met and talked with Fr. Jaki once. He was a wonderful person.

  • Father Jaki has some very interesting insights; this is a very good read and offers a number of interesting observations.

  • This book has some very valuable information relating to the foundational history and context of the Papacy. A must have for the advanced apologist.
