Morris West’s magnificent New York Times #1 bestseller has become an enduring classic of intrigue and faith. Intelligent and sharply written, The Shoes of the Fisherman moves readers with the power of its story and the emotional complexity of its characters.
When the pope dies, Vatican insiders arrange to have Kiril Lakota, a survivor of seventeen years in a labor prison camp, elected to fill the shoes first worn by the disciple Peter. As Pope Kiril struggles to remain true to both himself and to the traditions of the church, his faith is tested far beyond anything he was forced to endure in prison.
West’s genius at placing characters in believable, compelling moments of crisis, and his refusal to allow easy resolutions to their secular and spiritual turmoils, will resonate with listeners of all faiths and backgrounds.
