The End?

by Dabear on Sep 2, 2007

Do the Powers that Be of the Roman Catholic church really believe that Jesus is coming back at the end of human history? What would they do if their own leader -- the supposedly infallible Pope -- claimed to have heard directly from God on the subject? Can divine revelation break through ecclesiastical control? Morris West spent his formative years in a religious order before embarking on a career of journalism and fiction writing. His knowledge of the inner workings of the Roman Catholic church is consummate. He can penetrate the mysteries of the ecclesiastical mind-set and show us human beings who have the same needs and longings as we do, and yet bear the imprint of iron religious conditioning. West tells the truth about humans, their church, and their drive to control their destiny, with or without God's approval. His own spirituality manifests itself in a gentle message of hope. Anyone who is interested in eschatology will find this version of the End Times fascinating.
