Tristan Van Amber posts on 3/10/2005 8:14:53 PM I'm sorry, I don't know what Kelly Whiting was reading, but Graham Greene's "The Power and the Glory" has nothing to do with redemption. It is, on the face, about a man consumed in inner turmoil and persecution. Looking deeper betrays Greene's real point: the lack of a face or structure or even a point to religion. The majority of his novels have this same theme to them. Greene disliked religion and would never write a book giving it props.
