Item Description...
Overview
This updating of Dostoevsky's fable will challenge believers of every hue, and fascinate students of religion, philosophy and literature. The first graphic novel written in Miltonic blank verse, is exquisitely illustrated and promises to change the genre forever. The pope is dead. The Church is split. A rump conclave elects the first Black African pope in history, a hero who saved his people from persecution in Sudan. But a hostile cardinal kidnaps the new pope at the airport and holds him in secret at a mental hospital. To the captive, uncrowned pope "the Grand Inquisitor" lays out a dark conspiracy he has nurtured for 50 years to offer mankind salvation without the Cross. Will the new pope sign on to this "improved" version of Christianity? Will he end up dead? What obsessions join him to his enemy, and make his new vision so very tempting?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Okay, I'm biased....  May 27, 2008
I wrote this book. But I'm quoting a review by another author, who is too too busy to enter his comments here:

"An awe-inspiring achievement. Written in spare, supple, and beguiling blank verse, 'The Grand Inquisitor' offers an explanation of the Church's travails over the last generation that is at once breathtakingly inventive and thoroughly believable. It casts its piercing gaze toward secularism and Islamic supremacism and concludes with a magnificent expression of abiding faith and hope. This is an imaginative, insightful, and simply beautiful meditation on the reality of the Church and the world, the wheat and the tares before the harvest, and the holy dilemma of the lover of souls. Nothing short of a masterpiece."

--Robert Spencer, author of NY Times bestsellers "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and "The Truth About Mohammed."
