Graham Greene's The Power and the Glory, set in the primitive landscape of Mexico symbolizes the struggle between the church and the state, represented by the Priest and Lieutenant, respectively. Graham Greene addresses the relation between the spiritual and material principle in society and in human soul. He found the perfect story to illustrate this opposition at narrative and ideological levels, tightly and logically interwoven, providing natural action rather than abstraction. The Power and the Glory is not only the best novel in the Catholic trilogy, but also one of the best novels written by Graham Greene. On ideological level, it is unique in Greene's opus as religion is used to promote life, not death.
