I bought this after reading of it as an alumni on the R.I.C. website. Smith is also an alumni. The book did not disappoint. Every minute detail of a complex story was nicely tied up. Quite an enjoyable read, especially if you are interested in religion and history.

Bravo to Smith who has told a captivating tale! A unique story with a riveting plot... I couldn't get enough. When a wager is placed between a beguiling visitor from the underworld and an angel from one of the highest orders of heaven, it becomes a race to covet the soul of mankind. Realizing his own destiny, one mere mortal here on earth discovers the burden of saving man has fallen to him. A test he learns he's been preparing for his entire life. With the guiding principles of love, honor, courage and faith illuminating his path, Father Joseph leaves the Vatican and embarks upon a quest to prove that man still possesses purity of heart as the end of days nears. With time running out the Archfiend sends one who will put the chosen one to tests a hero would beg to be spared. The resolve of humankind reveals itself once and for all and it is either the rebirth or damnation of the human soul. Only one here on earth has the power to reach into the deepest recesses of their being to find the strength to rise up against evil in its most intimidating form. But have they awoken to hear their calling? Hopefully, Smith is now working on the sequel - which would also make an incredible movie!
