This is an outstanding example of excellence in Catholic apologetics. It is also a compelling argument against those Protestants who believe, for some reason, that Catholic scholars can't, don't, or won't use Scripture.
The book provides a remarkable Scriptural exegesis for the Office of Peter, and supports that exegesis through citations from the Church Fathers (both East and West), from Reformation era Protestants, and even from Eastern Orthodox theologians.
I personally know two of the men who reviewed this book. One, a highly skilled professor of New Testament and Church History has since become a Catholic. (Please see my review of "Mighty in Word and Deed" by James Shelton).
I, myself, used this volume as a secondary source in the preparation of my Master's Thesis.
The minor downsides to this book are that the presentation is sometimes choppy. It's a difficult volume to actually sit and read through -- and this is something which could easily be changed, and that a few of the citations would have greatly benefited from some context.
Other than these minor items, I found this book extremely valuable.
I highly recommed this work.
The authors have put this book into question/answer format; they ask the questions and give the answers. The answers are based on the Scriptures, and the authors provide the relevant verses. For easy reference, all of the questions (numbered) are indexed in the back of the book, with page reference.\
I compare this book to "All Generations Shall Call Me Blessed," which is an exhaustive work on the Marian doctrines. For apologetics or serious study, I highly recommended that book, and I highly recommend this one!
