Mary Credence wants to be a modern day Joan of Arc battling the skeptical world around her. But when the ardent virgin finds herself pregnant, she's thrust into a much bigger fight than she ever imagined. Is Mary hiding a romantic tryst in an effort to protect her father's political career, or is her baby a true modern miracle? With the help of a talented writer and a surprising medical finding, Mary attempts to convince the world of her gift and to convert a nation of cynics into believers.
Now and at the Hour of Our Death challenges our notions of faith and science, all while asking the eternal question: What do you believe?

Belief is freedom.
Mary, naturally. A modern-day saint shows how it's possible to do what's right despite the pressures of a decadent culture.
Mary--she fully captured the earnest innocence. Also, Mim nailed the sarcasm of the sister, Hannah.
Mary's grandmother. She's a hoot.
Now and at the Hour of Our Death is a magnificent work of spiritual and sociological examination that will thoroughly entertain from beginning to end. It is a page-turner even though it's an audio book. JSB Morse is a masterful storyteller and manages to weave in some of the most amazing themes you'll find in all of modern literature--faith, skepticism, fame, media, coolness, innocence, good, and evil.
It's much more challenging than most spiritual books out there, and has much more soul than most novels out there. In short, it's a unique piece of literature that is sure to be the source of great conversations on a number of fronts.
I love literary fiction and I occasionally delve into non-fiction. I love books that are suspenseful and am really into well-told stories.
Oh dear.. I did not really care for this... I have no idea why I bought it, but I guess someone, somewhere wrote a good review.
Yikes! It's pretty bad. I don't even want to waste any more time writing a review for it. Steer clear.
