The Power and the Glory - Graham Greene - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Power and the Glory:

The story of Padre Jose, the whiskey priest.

My favorite Graham Greene quote from the book:

"Nobody really knew how long a second of pain could be."

Questions to ponder while reading The Power and the Glory:

Have you ever loved the results of sin?

What affects your faith in God?

My review of the book:

A huge surprise.

A good look into Mexico, post-revolution.

A great treatise on sin, grace, and redemption.
