West, Morris, 1916-1999
Catholic Church; English fiction.; Canonization - Fiction.
"The Devil's Advocate, "Morris West's best-selling novel, is a deft exploration of the meaning of faith. In an impoverished village in southern Italy, the life and death of Giacamo Nerone has inspired talk of saint-hood. Father Blaise Meredith, a dying English priest, is sent from the Vatican to investigate--and to try to untangle the web of facts, rumors, and outright lies that surround Nerone's life and death. With spiritual frailty as a backdrop, "The Devil's Advocate" reminds us how the power of goodness ultimately prevails over despair.
