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?

You Are Peter: An Orthodox Reflection on the Exercise of Papal Primacy, by Oilvier Clement
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

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.
