Overview

HE COMES FROM UNFATHOMABLE REALMS OF DARKNESS.
The boy innocently emerged from a deep cave in northernmost China, clutching a strange stone talisman. Abandoned, a war orphan, he was adopted by the Church, protected by a powerful Prince of the Church and grew to manhood as Peter Stamp.
EARTH, AIR, FIRE AND WATER ARE HIS TO COMMAND.
HE IS RISEN. HIS POWER IS DARKNESS. HIS TIME HAS COME. HE WILL RULE THE EARTH...
Beautiful, humble, devout, he has the call, the gift. Miraculous fountains spring from the desert at his touch. Demons of air strike down his enemies. Walls of hellfire hide his terrible secret.

HE WILL BE PRIEST, BISHOP, CARDINAL, POPE!
For his is the kingdom, and the power--and the unspeakable terror prophesied to come IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER!

 “A tale of demonic influence and the coming of the anti-Pope, demonstrates how evil could come of seeming good. The book questions motives and methods as it portrays an ambitious cardinal who has longed to be pope, carefully grooming his resistant, adopted son for that position. The book provides a close-up look at the political maneuverings and strategies involved in progression up the Vatican hierarchy, and the non-religious motives behind Church assistance worldwide. Its central concept is that of evil deriving from blinded men who only want to do good.” Gina MacDonald, review, of In The Name Of The Father, Biographical Dictionary of Contemporary Catholic American Writing, Edited by Daniel J. Tynan, Greenwood Press, p. 308 of pp. 307-309, title of dictionary entry, “John Rester Zodrow

Voss Foster Dec 20, 2011  Voss Foster rated it  If you find it, do not let it pass by. The prose alone is worth the read. Without going into it too much, I can only say that it's dark enough  to get under my skin, make it hard for me to sleep. That, I can assure you, takes a lot. I read Stephen King in fifth grade with no adverse effects, but this book was severely dark, and that's just the way it should be.  Again: don't let it pass you by. When and if the opportunity arises to get it, buy it fast. Then prepare to stay awake for many nights.
