You are Peter
by Olivier Clement

In his encyclical, Ut unum sint, John Paul II called for common reflection on the function of papal primacy in the post-Vatican II era. With You Are Peter the great Orthodox theologian Olivier Clément responds to this request with characteristic brilliance. He summarizes the history and experience of the undivided Church, recalls the contrasting developments of eastern and western Christianity, and concludes with discussion of the tasks that call us to unity.

Henri J.M. Nouwen Nouwen has divided his study into four chapters, which he sees as four different ways of approaching the problems of ministry in our time.
