What name will the new pope choose?

What name will the next pope choose? Get your copy of Jimmy Akin's definitive study!

Will he be a Benedict? A John Paul? A Pius? A Leo? Something else entirely?

I wanted to let you know about a special study I did last year on what name the next pope would choose.

Normally, I use these Secret Info Club emails to send you fascinating information of a timeless nature, but with the cardinals holding a conclave, this study is particularly timely, and I thought you’d like to know about it.

Several years ago, when John Paul II died, I began looking at the history of the names popes have chosen, and I was startled to see the patterns that exist.

The popes themselves probably haven’t been fully aware of these patterns.

What I learned was that the name of the next pope is quite a bit more predictable than you would imagine. It’s even possible to assign probabilities.

Last year, on a lark, I put the study out as an ebook, though I never advertised it.

It’s available for Kindle, Nook, and on the Apple iBookstore for just $2.99.

Click here to learn more about it.

It’s called Pope Names: The Definitive Guide to Papal Names, Why Popes Choose the Names They Do, and Which Name the Next Pope Will Choose.

It covers a lot of fascinating things, including:

  • What names will be on the “short list” that the next pope considers, and what are the odds he will pick a particular name?
  • What is the one name that the next pope will definitely not pick, no matter what?
  • Why do popes sometimes feel the need to “shake up” the pool of pope names?
  • What are the signs that we are living in a “shake up” period right now?
  • What pope was named after a pagan god?
  • What man actually served as pope three times?
  • Why is there no Pope Stephen II?

And a lot more! I tried to pack as much value into the little ebook as I could!

I hope you’ll check it out and that you’ll find the history of pope names as fascinating as I did when I began looking into it.

You can read more at www.PopeNamesBook.com or get a copy through one of these links:

I also hope you’ll join me in keeping the cardinals in prayer as they select our new pope.

Bought your e-book and just finished it. I think it will be Leo, Gregory or Pius. Of the longshots, Stephen, Clement or Romanus. The last one is my favorite thanks to St. Malachy’s ‘Prophecies’! I can live with Leo.  It depends on the direction the Holy Spirit leads. Gonna be interesting.
