What has been created is a sterile world of crass materialism, a world without spiritual dimension, a world where people daily choose legalized euthanasia over the emptiness of existence. Out of this culture of despair, there arises a charismatic leader: Julian Felsenburgh. Soon the masses are in Felsenburgh's thrall, and he becomes leader of the world. But in their eagerness for change, have the citizens of the world embraced the Antichrist and hastened the end of days?
Father Percy Franklin remains a bastion of stability, even as the Catholic Church disintegrates around him. Finally outlawed and driven underground, it is only this small and shrinking church that stands against the "Lord of the World".

The narrator is great, except for his Latin
What did you love best about Lord of the World?
tremendous story, very apt for our time
Who was your favorite character and why?
Mabel realizes the lie she had been sold
What aspect of Simon Vance’s performance would you have changed?
Simon Vance badly mangles the ecclesiastical Latin pronunciation. His pronunciation is closer to classical Latin pronunciation, but that's not appropriate for the many Catholic Latin prayers, scripture, and chants scattered throughout the book. (Although you won't notice if you're not accustomed to praying in Latin)
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, the various bits require some time to sink in
