The Power And the Glory

The Power And the Glory

by Graham Greene (Author), Graham Greene (Author), John Updike (Introduction)


The last priest is on the run. During an anti-clerical purge in one of the southern states of Mexico, he is hunted like a hare. Too human for heroism, too humble for martyrdom, the little worldly 'whisky priest' is nevertheless impelled towards his squalid Calvary as much by his own compassion for humanity as by the efforts of his pursuers. A baleful vulture of doom hovers over this modern crucifixion story, but above the vulture soars an eagle -- the inevitability of the Church's triumph.
