This novel is amazing. It is the only fiction book that I had to put down in order to pray. How can you not like a book that has all the usual POD elements: stigmatics, apparitions of Our Lady, Jewish Carmelite convert priest, the Anti-Christ, random exorcisms of evil places, secret conversations with Cardinals in the catacombs, relics...you get the picture.
It's fast and fun - like the orthodox Catholic version of Da Vinci Code. If you've read it, drop a comment and give me a witness.
