Before I forget, this last summer was non-stop (and so not very relaxing). However, I was able to read an apocalyptic novel called "Father Elijah" by Michael D. O'Brien (597 pages). The book is written within the context of the Catholic Church, the Vatican and travels through many countries. There is suspense and intrigue, insights into modern society, and the state of the Church and how life is for the faithful in the last days. Finally, there is interwoven the reality and reliance on divine revelation (Scripture), the Sacrament, prayer all toward faith in Christ.
Don't let the size of the book scare you away!
