We had to choose a work of fiction written during and about our time period, which happened to be the time period this book is set in, and we had difficulty finding many options, so we went for this one. I was surprised to find that this book is quite entertaining.
It tells the story of Theron Ware, an initially down-to-earth pastor living a simple life who ends up moving to a town where some more diverse viewpoints are held. He begins to learn about the lives of the looked-down-upon Irish and become more versed in the ways of science. Frederic does a great job of creating a very vivid setting for his story, and all the characters come to life as Ware tries to reconcile his traditional, protestant, way of life with the twin forces of secularism and Catholicism pressing down on his worldview.
Read it for the history, but also for the enjoyment. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. This was a very popular novel of , and is considered by many to be a literary classic. Theron Ware enters the scene as a small town Methodist Minister. He and his wife seem to be humble folk and settle into a small house near his church. Soon he meets a Catholic priest, an atheist physician, and a beautiful Irish lass.
They make quite an impression on him. They are sophisticated, well educated, and quite worldly. Alas, they are such a strong influence on him that he starts playing the worldly role, and begins to look down on his job and his religion. He also finds himself strongly attracted to the lovely Celia Madden. I should mention that in those days the Irish were assigned to the caste of untouchables. Theron acts as if he is now a man of the world, although he knows nothing of the literature, music, and philosophy discussed by others. He becomes a boring, mean minded buffoon.

The book continues with his steady degradation, a preacher who has become a victim of that secular humanism that our current day fundamentalists complain so much about. Download Orientteppiche PDF.
