In this profound and thrilling novel, Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson presents a world outwardly without conflict. There are no battles, no religion.
In spite of that, all is not well. There is a war going on. The Godlessness of the world, disguised in comfortable Humanism, gnaws at the minds and souls of the people. Euthanasia is rampant, a way to escape a sterile and meaningless world. Only the ghettoized, underground Catholic Church and its meager remaining adherents struggle to keep Christianity alive.
Pushed to edges of society, their biggest and most important conflict comes in the form of Julian Felsenburgh, the leader of the new world order…and an Anti-Christ.
The only ones left to to fight this, perhaps, final battle of Good vs. Evil; are Father Percy Franklin and the small band of remaining Catholics.
Written more than 100 years ago, Lord of the World remains just as profound today as it did when it was first published.
"Mr. Benson sees the world, four or five generations hence [this review written in 1906], free at last from all minor quarrels, and ranged against itself in two camps, Humanitarianism for those who believe in no divinity but that of man, Catholicism for those who believe in no divinity but that of God."
