Lord I am not worthy…


Roger Bartow, a hapless insurance defense lawyer struggling with his ex-wife’s infidelity and feelings of meaninglessness, finds solace in a mysterious gentleman he meets on lonely hikes through Harriman State Park. The kindly gentleman’s reluctant revelation that he is Lucifer, strains Roger’s slim grip on sanity forcing him to seek help from his best friend’s Lutheran Pastor, Philip Webb.

Attempts to have Roger meet with his own parish pastor, the pompous and ambitious Father Paul, bring a visitor from the Catholic Church’s ancient “Officii Praestigiae,” and a struggle between heaven and earth. Roger finds a sense of belonging through his reconnection with his church but when a report of the encounter with Lucifer ends up in a tabloid, Roger, Father Paul and Reverend Webb are forced to choose between competing absolutes of love, faith, innocence and life.

This first full length novel from m.j. McMahon draws you along the razor’s edge between sanity and insanity, good and evil, life and death.

      Hi Lori;

      Sorry it took me this long to get back to you. I get so much spam that I sometimes miss the important ones. What format would you prefer? It’s only available as an ebook.

    I have never reviewd a book but I would be willing to make an exeption because the subject matter is of primary importance to me. I was born in Spain in 1943, a catholic by birth and upbringing. I went to the seminary in Spain from 1954 to 1956 when my family came to live in America. Eventually I became an atheist while at Temple University. I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Saviour in 1978 while at the University of Virginia’s Graduate School studying Spanish literature whith a concentration in Medieval Misticism.
    Love in Christ Jesus,

    I am not a “professional” reader. I am just a “book-a-holic” who would love to read your work. I would say it is closer to non-fiction than many would like to admit. Very best of luck with your publication!
