I believe this book was set between the second and third "short stories" that make up A Canticle for Liebowitz. It explores the bleak world more thoroughly as the monks enter the political world of the Church.
It's a good book, but it's not gripping (IMO, parts of Canticle were) and it sometimes drags - possibly because it's three times as long as any of the stories in Canticle. Also, the author chose not to follow up on some of the question I would have liked answered.
If you read and loved Canticle for Leibowitz and loved it you'll be delighted with this sequel or continuation released several decades later. One of the better scenarios depicting man and his addiction to the metaphysical and his determination to capture it in doctrines.
Excellent! Though I would not consider this a sequel to 'A Canticle for Leibowitz.' Rather than a continuation it is a new story set in the same environment, time or historical arc of 'Canticle.'
