The Shoes of the Fisherman Author:Morris West What happens to a twentieth-century man when he is crowned with the Triple Tiara and named Vicar of Christ, Vicegerent of the Almighty on this troubled planet? This startling question is the point of departure for The Shoes of the Fisherman.
I first read this in high school and then in aduldhood. It remains one of my favorite books. Clowns of God builds on this book and is even better, if possible. West questioned the Catholic Church long before Brown did in The Da Vinci Code.
