About this title


SON OF THE MORNING is the story of Nathanael Vickery conceived in sin but blessed with evangelical purpose. For him, even as a child of five, God is near; as a young boy it has already become clear that he must heed the call of the evangelical ministry. As his congregation grows to swelling point, as his messages about God and Christ become ever more compelling it, their urgency, Nathanael himself hears the voice of Jesus, knows the touch of the Lord, feels the triumph of his mission. And within that triumph lies the evil seed of pride. "How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning!" In this memorable novel, Joyce Carol Oates tells not only of the travail of a man who believes himself one of God's Chosen and thus loses the way, but looks into the hearts of those many Americans who today follow so avidly evangelism's word.
