I liked that insight the book gave to the choosing of papal names. However, his less than 1% chance of the next Pope was way off! Pope Francis! I will be curious to Mr. Akin's thoughts on the choice of the name.

Jimmy understands the need for clear-headed thinking and explication, and he excels at providing such. This work is remarkably thorough for a compendium, and looks at the data through more than one lens. He also engages in a bit of speculation about the next pope's regnal name, which is fun.

Excellent study of papal names, as is expected when the name Jimmy Akin comes up. Unfortunately there are several places (Chapter 2, especially) when blocks of text are duplicated. Many clipboards are partial to this sort of textual "improvement" , even mine. Perhaps it is an undocumented feature of the Android OS. Keep up the great work, Jimmy!!! -- JG Campbell
