"The papacy is an extraordinary institution that has outlived nations and empires, and might yet flourish long after our present world order has faded into legend. All the more important, then, that we understand the complexities of papal power and the papal succession." -- Philip Jenkins, author of 'The Next Christendom' and 'God's Continent.'
