It is a world seemingly without conflict. There are no battles, no religion. Imagine! And yet, all is not well. There is a war going on. The godlessness of the world, disguised in comfortable Humanism, gnaws at the minds and souls of the people. Euthanasia is rampant, a way to escape a sterile and meaningless world. Only the ghettoized, underground Catholic Church and its few remaining adherents struggle to keep Christianity alive. Pushed to the edges of society, their biggest and most important conflict comes in the form of Julian Felsenburgh, the leader of the new world order ... and an Anti-Christ. It is left to Father Percy Franklin and the small band of remaining Catholics to fight this, perhaps, final battle of Good vs. Evil; Christ vs. Anti-Christ.

The book describes a futuristic treatment of the Apocalypse, written (in 1906) from the point of view of a decidedly Catholic convert and priest. Accordingly its assumptions will not be shared by everyone. This is perhaps putting it mildly.
That being said it is executed with more than competent style. Characters are three-dimensional if not perhaps presented with complete objectivity. Particularly vivid are his descriptions of flight in the 'volors', the air travel of the future. It is doubtful that Benson could have flown himself; his aerial landscapes are quite convincing.
Despite its relatively high quality many readers may find that the author's fervent if narrow views demand a good dose of patience. Not for everybody.
