  1. 00
    War, Progress, and the End of History: Three Conversations, Including a Short Tale of the Antichrist (Esalen-Lindisfarne Library of Russian Philosophy) de Vladimir Solovyov (gabriel)
    gabriel: Soloviev's "Short History of the Anti-Christ" is an interesting approach to Apocalyptic literature, and interestingly combines the idea of Christian unity with the coming of the Anti-Christ

This was an interesting read for me. As a spiritualist atheist (and therefore the Bad Guy in the story), I found it fascinating to find more similarities than differences between my belief system and Catholicism. O'Brien is adroit in showing the reader his world view. Sometimes discussions did linger too much on the philosophical, theological side but generally there was good balance between plot, characters and religious debate. Although I'm unlikely to read the trilogy, I would definitely recommend this read. ( )

Wonderful. Full disclosure, I am very familiar with the spiritual elements of the story. That said, I really enjoyed it. ( )

This was a very interesting book. I've never read anything like it--part political thriller, part philosophical treatise, part spirituality, part apocalyptic vision, part exploration of ecclesiastical issues. It brings in all these different elements and somehow still works as a cohesive story. I can't say that everyone would enjoy it--it does contain a good deal of introspection and philosophizing, and as the main character is a priest (as are many of the side characters), there are multiple points where it toes the line of preachy. For some, it will probably go a little too far over that line. I, however, felt that the themes and ideas were so well integrated into the book, and into the character of the titular Father Elijah, that it never seemed like I was being preached to. Everything seemed to flow straight from the convictions of the characters. There were dozens of portions that I felt the urge to quote on Facebook, and I will be thinking about this book for a long time. The worldview presented is unabashedly Catholic, unabashedly orthodox, and that is refreshing in a world where so many seem intent on watering down the Faith. ( )

Page turner

Good take on the apocalypse

Priest going through the war WW2

Characters are memorable

Catholic , good Christian values

Heavy on theology; may need to refer to other resources b/c some of this info.
Captivating good book that I would highly recommend. At times a little lengthy and dark in theological discussions and strong in conversion. The reactions that this book sparked in me was curiosity, anger and sadness. This book is very in keeping with Catholic doctrines. This book makes me aware to become deeper and deeper in my faith. And to pray for a brave and thankful heart in my faith during these times. ( )

This is the first book I read by him. Very intense, a fast read. There were two instances of animal cruelty which I had to skip over. ( )
