In 1968, William May signed a document dissenting from Pope Paul VI's encyclical Humanae Vitae, in whihc the Pope reafirmed the Church's teacning against artificial birth control. In Dr. May's own words, "Signing this document was on my part a cowardly dead." But God, in his providence, used this mistake to launch the career of one of the Catholic Church's outstanding moral theologians-who now 'stands with Peter' on Humanae vitae. This is his story in his own words.

"Standing with Peter" is a fascinating memoir of a lifefime of scholarship in action-a warmly human account told with ... a passonate commitment to the truth. It is a joy to read. --Russell Shaw
...he (Dr. May) has been ... on both sides of the conflict between loyal Catholics and 'dissenters' on magisterial teaching. There is no one better to tell the inside story particularly surrounding the events of that pivotal year 1968... --Rev. C.J. McCloskey III
