Morris West

On and off over the years I have been reading the novels of Morris West.

These books certainly do not fall into the cheap trashy novel style, and they are not “johnny-go-get-em” either. West’s writing is perhaps best described as literature.

Each book can be read and understood on many levels. There is always a deeply held moral or philosophical point. Some of them are a bit pretentious. West has a long obsession with the Catholic church. By no means is he an apologist for the Church. Rather he draws out moral dilemmas, exposes hypocrisy, and challenges his readers. He shows the world in all it’s true complexity.

Be prepared to be confronted, challenged, and maybe not to like it. But read a few of the books by Morris West.
