From Library Journal:

In his fifth novel, Leggett sets the contrasting careers of two Episcopalian priests against the tumultuous events of the 1960s. Narrator Ethan Soames follows a traditional career as a parish priest in New Jersey. His friend Roy Train, a former law professor, takes a radical path. Roy sees his mission as one of raising the people's consciousness and attracting the young back to the faith. He serves as a priest in a decaying parish and later as Bishop of Iowa, embracing gnosticism and involving himself in the civil rights struggle and antiwar movement along the way. Somewhat critical of his friend's shortcomings (Roy has an affair and divorces his wife), Ethan comes to realize that he too is susceptible to temptation. After Roy's death Ethan reflects that what his friend really preached was love, forgiveness, and tolerance. Once again, Leggett succeeds admirably in making the lives of ordinary men seem interesting and rather extraordinary. For most fiction collections. Brian E. Coutts, Rice Univ. Lib., Houston
