Upon This Rock was a well written and thought out book. It gave all the sources that he used and helped me to understand the depth of the Catholic position. I do not agree with Mr. Ray's conclusion but now I realize I may well be wrong. I think one goal of this book was to defend the Catholic Church and show why the church claims the authority it does. I have to admit many of my presuppositions have been changed and his work has helped me understand and even respect the faith of Catholics that much more.

Awestruck... 20 Aug. 2005
By RC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading opinions by James White and William Webster on the same subject, I thought I'd been given the full truth. But Mr. Ray's further, deeper development on White's/Webster's study showed me that I had only been given an incomplete story. What else about the Protestant faith is only "partially" developed ? Mr. Ray's presentation is overwhelming. One particular nugget in the goldmine of truth was not detailed in the New Testament, Old Testament, or the Church Fathers. It was a geography lesson on Caesarea Philllipi. It had never dawned on me what a long journey this was for Jesus and his disciples. The significance of the journey and the rock have come into focus!

I am now dedicating myself to learning what other partial truths have been developed fully by the catholic church.

Great Book 2 Mar. 2001
By Samuel F. Crow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The discussion was excellent in that it chronicled the Office of the Papacy both in Scripture and in history. It is an excellent source book and demonstrated excellent research techniques especially in the Early Church Fathers documentation and reference. There are a great deal of footnotes, but unlike some books, these footnotes are very readable and useable either in a discussion as a Catholic Christian Apologist or as a bibliography in a paper. I highly recommend this book.

Good Apologetics Resource 4 Jan. 2007
By TheListener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you can manage to battle your way through the format of this book (%10 text and %90 footnotes) it is a great book to have in your library. It is not a reason-based approach to the issue of the primacy of Rome in the early Church as it is an overwhelming number of references and citations. The argument relies mostly on historical proof, however, it can get a bit tedious at times.

As a soon-to-be Catholic I think this book erased any questions in my mind about how the early Church regarded Rome and it is a nail in the coffin of independent congregationalist fundamentalists.

It is a great reference book which could be used by armchair apologists, if you are into that sort of thing. But it will require a bit of discipline to finish this book.

An impressive and well written book 22 April 1999
By "revdrh" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I commend Stephen Ray for his efforts in assembling such a complete book on the Papacy. The use of Patristic sources is impressive. Mr. Ray has done a professional job in presenting and demonstrating the Papacy as an undeniable Truth of Christ's Church. He has done a masterful job in pointing out the errors of opponents. This is a great resource for anyone wanting a fuller understanding of the Papacy. In addition, the efforts taken to obtain an Imprimatur gives proof for the reader that substance and truth have the highest priority.
Well done Mr. Ray!
