Praise for John L. Allen, Jr.’s Conclave:

“An invaluable primer…highly informative.” — Washington Post

“Definitely a winner.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune

“It’s surprising how much you learn from this book…[Allen] explain[s] the process in an engaging way, and offers history, context, and his own list of front-runners.” —Arizona Republic

Conclave offers something for everyone. Insiders who are knowledgeable about Vatican politics will relish the detail that Allen…delves into when describing the process and the personalities that will elect the next pope. Those who are baffled by the arcane traditions of Roman Catholicism will understand better how this ancient institution functions. The curious will have a context within which to understand why the cardinals choose a pope with a certain theological and political bent.” —National Catholic Reporter
