Book Review: The Power and the Glory (Greene)


Have I read this before: Nope.

Review: Eh, this was okay. It follows a priest in Mexico during the time when Catholicism was outlawed (1930s), so he’s basically an outlaw. He struggles with the fact that he’s a drinker (when he can get it) and a father to a daughter – two things that oppose his moral views. It’s a decent story, but it wasn’t one of my favorites on my list.  

Favorite Part: I did like how the priest realized that he was probably being led into a trap at the end of the book, but still chose to do what he was “meant” to do as a priest and hear the confession of a dying man. You get a pretty clear picture of the conflict he’s in but see that he really wants to do what is right.
