According to the 245 $c in OCLC record #98168802 for "Understanding the
Bible," the author of that book is named as "Louis W. Bookheim, Jr." In
that case, per RDA, you should establish him as "Bookheim, Louis
W., $c Jr."

The title page name of the law librarian on his work is "Louis W.
Bookheim." We prefer the formal name--"Bookheim, Louis W."

The presence of "Jr." is both required by RDA and sufficient to distinguish
the two names. "Bookheim, Bill" or "Bookheim, Bill W." becomes a 400
variant name for the law librarian.
