Christ is Risen!

Has anyone read the book The Papacy by Abbe Guette? I am reading it now. If not, what are some other good Orthodox books dealing Papal primacy/supremacy/infallibility?

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

His Broken Body: Understanding and Healing the Schism Between the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches by Laurent Cleenewerck

It's a decent book, with the bulk of it dedicated to dealing with issues of the papacy (from an Orthodox perspective.  The author has an interesting proposal for the fundamental principle of ecclessiology in the true understanding of the Orthodox Church (though, this proposal still leaves many unanswered questions IMO).  If I recall correctly, he fails to provide any concrete idea as to how to go about healing the schism, though, which is a bit of letdown given the third word in the subtitle, but whatever.
