It is a world seemingly without conflict. There are no battles, no religion. Imagine! And yet, 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 few remaining adherents struggle to keep Christianity alive. Pushed to the 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. It is left to Father Percy Franklin and the small band of remaining Catholics to fight this, perhaps, final battle of Good vs. Evil; Christ vs. Anti-Christ. Written more than 100 years ago, Lord of the World remains just as profound today as it did when it was first published.
