Overview

Michael O'Brien presents a thrilling apocalyptic novel about the condition of the Roman Catholic Church at the end of time. It explores the state of the modern world, and the strengths and weaknesses of the contemporary religious scene, by taking his central character, Father Elijah Schafer, a Carmelite priest, on a secret mission for the Vatican which embroils him in a series of crises and subterfuges affecting the ultimate destiny of the Church. The Pope and the Cardinal Secretary of State call him out of obscurity and give him a task of the highest sensitivity: to penetrate into the inner circles of a man whom they believe may be the Antichrist. Their purpose: to call the Man of Sin to repentance, and thus to postpone the great tribulation long enough to preach the Gospel to the whole world.

What People Are Saying

Sheldon Vanauken
A thriller -- one of the greatest books I've ever read.
William F. Buckley
Father Elijah is a powerful story, well told.
Thomas Howard
One is almost agog at the dexterity -- the artistry really -- with which O'Brien shapes enormously charged material into a narrative which exhibits the integrity one finds only in the very best fiction... -- Author, C.S. Lewis: Man of Letters

    Very good Alternative to Left Behind

    If you are looking for a little less hokey version of the apocalypse story than the Left Behind books this book can be taken seriously as an intro to the apocalypse. A fully Catholic book that is orthodox, no progressives here.
