During a vicious persecution of the clergy in Mexico, a worldly priest, the 'whisky priest', is on the run. With the police closing in, his routes of escape are being shut off, his chances getting fewer. But compassion and humanity force him along the road to his destiny, reluctant to abandon those who need him, and those he cares for.

"The most ingenious, inventive and exciting of our novelists, rich in exactly etched and moving portraits of real human beings"
"The power and energy of his finest novel derive from the will toward compassion, and ideal communism even more Christian than Communism. Its unit is the individual, not any class"
"No serious writer of this century has more thoroughly invaded and shaped the public imagination than did Graham Greene" ( The Times)
"Graham Greene had wit and grace and character and story and a transcendent universal compassion that places him for all time in the ranks of world literature" ( John Le Carre)
" The Power Tnd The Glory's nameless whisky priest blends seamlessly with his tropical, crooked, anticlerical Mexico. Roman Catholicism is intrinsic to the character and terrain both; Greene's imaginative immersion in both is triumphant" ( John Updike)
'Graham Greene's masterpiece' John Updike
