Three Who Ventured: A Novel by Myles Connolly
Dennis, Mann Timothy, and John Martin are three adventurers who share a common goal for salvation. Dennis, a Catholic priest, has a crisis of faith and seeks refuge in anonymity, where he can serve God in complete humility. Mann Timothy continually puts his faith to the test by attempting to walk on water, despite the fact that the final, and most terrifying, test of his faith is still to come. John Martin follows his adventurous spirit into a nether world of impulse and despair, from which the only way out is to make an offering of complete, self-emptying love.
With Stephen Mirarchi as their seasoned guide, readers can have an expanded appreciation for the depths of feeling and the rich sacramental vision that Connolly possessed in his fiction-writing, as they follow the Three Who Ventured in search of the divine.
