Armor of God : Father Michael Flannery is Keeper of the Sign, prophesized to bring the gospel of peace to the world. On his way to a landmark symposium of the world's largest religious groups, he barely escapes assassination at the hands of Via Dei, a conservative sect who will do anything to keep the world's religions at war. Interwoven with Flannery's struggle is the story of Tobias Garlande, a scholar living during the First Crusade. The first Keeper of the Sign, Tobias is burdened with terrifying visions of future tragedies. His warning to father Flannery echoes across centuries: You must not fail.
