In writing this book, Catholic apologist David Hess has brought forth some fascinating information regarding the papacy. I read it with interest and found it most helpful in understanding Catholic teaching on the pope. However, I was disappointed in the poor layout design, which made things hard to follow. Although the content was good, the physical presentation of the material was disjointed and amateurish (no doubt the publisher's fault, not the author's). But in spite of the technical ineptitude of the publisher and whoever "edited" the work, Hess and his co-authors should be credited with presenting an interesting and challenging case. I hope he writes more.

David Hess has collected a great deal of useful information - much of which has not appeared before in English. For this reason alone, this book is worth having. Unfortunately, the info, as compelling as it is, is presented in an awkward, question-and-answer format. As a result, it's difficult to read. Additionally, there are other issues that Hess and his co-authors leave unaddressed (Canon 6 of Nicea, for example). All in all, though, JP+K is an important work to have. The combined weight of the evidence is itself compelling, in spite of the format of presentation.

Well...lightweight pseudo-scholars like James White and Robert Zins will have their hands full for years with this one. This book is one of the best Catholic apologetics around right now. It was reviewed by three hundred and fifty Protestant professors for four years before it was published. Since its publication, forty-two Protestant seminary professors from various traditions have converted to the Catholic faith. I predict that this trend will continue. This easy to follow guide is a must read for Catholics and Protestants; for Catholics to strengthen their faith and to give them ammunition against Protestants, and for Protestants to educate them on what scripture and early Christians really say about the papacy.

This is a very good exhaustive explanation of the Papacy. Butler and his co-authors prove from Scripture and history the doctrine of the Pope and his infallibility. Must-have for any serious apologist! Thoroughly indexed. Imprimatur.

A must-read for any Catholic apologist, Scott Butler's Jesus, Peter, and the Keys is a priceless resource for defending our Traditional position on the Papacy from a Scriptural and patristic point of view. One will find the books's patristic quotes especially helpful in dispelling the various anti-Papal arguments.

In writing this book, David Hess has performed a valuable service for those who want a handy reference source for biblical and patristic evidence for the papacy. The case Hess presents is compelling.
