III: "Anglicans and Catholics in Dialogue on the Papacy" responds to ARCIC's questions in the light of the areas for further development.The book concludes by arguing that the only way for the Catholic Church to reform and renew the papacy as an instrument for Christian unity is through ecumenical dialogue.
