Considered a failure by his superiors, he is sent to China to maintain a mission amid desperate poverty, civil war, plague, and the hostility of his superiors. In the face of this constant danger and hardship, Father Chisholm finds the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Recognized as A. J. Cronin's best novel, "The Keys of the Kingdom "is an enthralling, fast-moving, colorful tale of a deeply spiritual man called to do good in an imperfect world.
