KIRKUS REVIEW

A mystical novel of good confronting evil which is everywhere and in all humans, filled with vigorous emotional struggles and vivid physical flagellations as a penance. Bernanos has a gift for mixing his brutalities of the mind and spirit with the sweetness and power of religion, and the good father, a peasant priest, in his simplicity, belligerence and humility, stands for the right in his way of life, and confutes those who would argue against him. More especially designed for a religious market, than for the general reader.
