Surviving in the deserts of the western United States, the monks of St. Leibowitz try to pane unneurotic their what went before and that of Christianity with the hopes that yesteryear will not say again itself and additional wreck the social order. Standing lookout complete their endeavors is an outwardly deathless old man, a man believed to have been resurrected by Christ and is until His return.

People foreign next to the Catholic creed may be put off a little bit by the somewhat brusk portrayals of the sequence of abbots who take charge of the every day cloistral life, others may laugh at the scenes wherever pleasure is derived from the uncovering of an actual buying chronicle departed at the back by their charity donor saint, not to approach the apparently antiquated use of Latin among the monks (Miller wrote Canticle before the Vatican II council, when Latin was unmoving current in veneration. One can solitary take as fact Miller although the Latin Mass would always be the touchstone).
