Publisher's summary

After firewalking in Polynesia, fundamentalist Minister Alexander Hergensheimer never saw the world the same. Now called Alec Graham, he was in the middle of an affair with his stewardess, Margrethe, and natural disasters kept following them. First, there was an impossible iceberg that wrecked the ship in the tropics; then, after being rescued by a Royal Mexican plane, they were hit by a double earthquake.

To Alex, the signs were clear that Armageddon and the Day of Judgment were near. Somehow, he had to bring his beloved heathen, Margrethe, to a state of grace, for heaven would be no paradise without her. But time was growing short. And, while he was at it, there had to be a way to save the rest of the world.

Critic reviews

"Heinlein's back in form, with a most refreshing and satisfying blend of ideas and storytelling...a limber, complex, and economical novel that disarms and often compels - with Heinlein's best theology-shaded fantasy since Stranger in a Strange Land." (Kirkus Reviews)
