About Book

A group of young people are searching for meaning in a dark and directionless world. The Course, a religious movement led by a charismatic priest, seems at first to offer everything the friends have been looking for: a community of bright, thoughtful, beautiful people. But as they are drawn deeper into the Course, money, sex, and God collide, threatening to rip them apart.

This gripping novel of ideas lays bare a world where the advancement of a movement becomes more important than the lives of its followers
