Revelation of St. John the Divine Ch. I, verses 10-11 She looked like a country-woman, stout, apple-cheeked, dressed in coarse woollen stuff, her wispy grey hair trailing from under a straw hat. She. sat bolt upright in the chair, hands folded over a large old-fashioned handbag of brown leather. She was wary but unafraid, as if she were studying the merchandise in an unfamiliar market.

Clowns of God is one such. Perhaps the setting is somewhat dated now, with geopolitical alliances totally re-arranged. However, when I first read it back in the 1980s, the kind of doomsday scenario it pointed to was not all that far-fetched. Many who lived through the Cold War will remember the impotent fear caused by the insanity of "Mutual Assured Destruction - MAD" theories. In fact, in many ways I sensed a respect and honor for the institution and the various positions of office.

Lazarus completes Morris West's bestselling Vatican trilogy, following The Shoes of the Fisherman and The Clowns of God. It can also be read on its own as a gripping exploration of Church politics in a world of crises. Timely and absorbing. A tense and exciting thriller.

What would happen, if the members of the Roman Curia discovered that the Pope was about to state publicly that he had received a private revelation that the world was about to end? Pope Gregory XVII claims to have received a private revelation of the end of the world - an apocalypse coming not in some distant future but at any moment. Is he a madman, as his cardinals suspect, a mystic, or a fanatic grasping for an unholy power?
This was a spooky book. Written in the 80's, it almost matches what is going on in the world today (Pope Benedict resigns) (Nuclear activity with nations and not knowing which side Russia is on). Our book club gave it a thumbs up and it lead us to some very serious discussions of what is happening in our world today and what truly happens behind the closed doors of the Church. How do we argue with a book like this!
An incredible series. the Vatican Trilogy, it feels like you have been on a retreat and challenges you to think in a humbling way. I am on Lazarus right now and am feeling sad I will have finished the trilogy. This writer is absolutely amazing
I have read this book many times and found hope and found comfort in these crazy years. It is as relevant in 2015 as it was when it was published.
I wish everyone who believes could read this, especially those who doubt or need comfort in these days. Mr. West wrote a book that makes one believe
In a future!
I read this book years ago, and my old copy has been destroyed (I lent it to my sister and their free-roaming guinea pig ate it). This was over 20 years ago, and I still remember this book. It's a powerful, exciting, prophetic and spiritual tale that I'm going to enjoy reading once again. I never dictate to my sons what to read (they are both in their early 20's), but I think I'm going to twist some arms to get them to read this story. I loved Shoes of the Fisherman, and this tale also touched my heart while entertaining me completely. Morris West has an uncanny ability to create situations and characters that mirror much of what we've experienced in the past few decades.
This book has long been a favorite of mine. I re-read it every few years. I was delighted when I found it was available for Kindle. The story is engaging, doesn't lag, and I really cared about the outcomes of all the characters. Great Read!
The book smells musty--I know it is an old book but didn't expect to smell musty. I'm trying to get rid of odor so I can read it. Do you have a suggestion? I've put newspaper inside the pages & it hasn't helped. It makes me congested. It is that musty smelling--not mold just musty!
I have read this book many times. Morris West is an incredible write,r and the challenge of writing a book as complex as this makes it a fascinating read. The story line is more relevant today than ever before. It will make the reader think about where we are going and what we believe in.
Timeless book! Fast moving. Read it in two days when it came out! Husband just read it & thinks it is better than Angels & Demons. He too thinks it should be a movie...Pope retires...world unrest...mystery, intrigue, action...conspiracy...all in this book. Do not want to give it away...should also make it digital...got this one as a gift for a friend...
