The Power and the Glory is a novel by Graham Greene, published in 1940. It takes place in Mexico during the time when, in several states, religion (and priests) were outlawed. The hero is a nameless alcoholic priest who has decided, unlike most, to stay in Mexico as a fugitive from the state and a savior to the people. His struggle with the Javert-like lieutenant who is trying to catch him is symbolic of the struggle between God and government. The novel is generally considered a literary masterpiece.
