The Next Pope, After Pope Benedict XVI — The Book

by Anura Guruge

Well this is what I was up to for the last 15 months. Writing this book, an adjunct to this blog.

If you read this blog you should check out this book. If you like this blog you must buy the book.

This is the definite, no stones left unturned handbook for the NEXT papal election — whenever that comes to be.

The dignified pomp as red-clad cardinals solemnly congregate in Rome, the obstinate obfuscation as to who is in the running to be the next pope, and the eagerly awaited color-coded smoke signals [sfumata] are matchless and enduring.

With this book you will be ahead of the game. Don’t rely on the media ‘pundits.’ With this book you will be a true expert as to who is in the running [i.e., the papabili], what makes them credible contenders, the traditions, the precedents, the rules, the schedule … even the shape of the urns used to collect the ballots.
