Has anyone done a study of Paul VI and JPII?

Just my two cents, nothing to back it up really, but there it is.

Michael Davies makes a similar argument in Pope John's Council.  One of the most memorable quotes from that book was, "Jesus wept over Jerusalem, and Pope John would have wept over Rome had he lived to see the things that would be done in the name of the Council."
