Through Bernanos' novel, the reading gains an understanding of how difficult it is to truly live Christianity every day existence, especially in the most difficult times of one's life. The novel is written as the journal of a young pastor in rural France, and this format enables the author to present a series of very deep, spiritually-based dialogues that form the intellectual basis of the story.
The Diary of a Country Priest raises a number of issues in the course of the exchanges between characters and the reflections of the priest; human loss, physical pain and suffering, the poor, honor and humility, and grace are just some of the themes discussed by Bernanos.
The author beautifully presents his thoughts on these and other spiritual questions through the passion of the priest, literally and figuratively.
Take your time reading this book, as nearly every page has at least one sentence that is grounds for serious reflection.
