Follow a young Catholic cleric as his faith is laid bare through his reflections on his parishioners in the "Best Spiritual Book of the 20th Century" (USA Today).
In this classic Catholic novel, Bernanos movingly recounts the life of a young French country priest who grows to understand his provincial parish while learning spiritual humility himself. Awarded the Grand Prix for Literature by the Academie Francaise, The Diary of a Country Priest was adapted into an acclaimed film by Robert Bresson. "A book of the utmost sensitiveness and compassion...it is a work of deep, subtle and singularly encompassing art." -- New York Times Book Review (front page).
